Dental bonding is one of the most popular cosmetic solutions available on the market. At Friedland Family Dentistry, Dr. Friedland is pleased to provide this unique option for individuals dealing with minor imperfections such as chips, cracks, or minor gaps. While veneers, clear aligners, and even dental crowns can achieve similar results, dental bonding is considered the quickest method of treatment because it is completed in just one appointment! Contact us today to schedule an appointment and find out if you’re eligible for dental bonding.
Similar to veneers, dental bonding is temporary and doesn’t require customization by lab technicians. Instead, a malleable substance known as composite resin is color-matched and applied directly to the surface of the tooth. Capable of covering all types of flaws, it takes only one appointment and allows you to enjoy a more beautiful smile for many years.
This quick and easy process requires little to no tooth preparation, allowing you to keep more of your natural tooth structure. To better understand the entire dental bonding process, here is a breakdown of the steps you can expect to follow:
The only way to know if you’re a qualified candidate for dental bonding is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Friedland. This visit will involve evaluating your oral and overall health to determine if you can receive this type of treatment. Most individuals are cleared with no issues; however, if you show signs of gum disease or tooth decay, we’ll need to recommend preliminary treatments (i.e., periodontal therapy, dental fillings, dental crowns) before moving forward with dental bonding.
Once all dental problems are addressed, you can begin to care for the aesthetics of your smile by receiving dental bonding.
