Questions About Dental Bonding

What is the procedure for dental bonding?
Dr. Naini will select the resin color that most closely matches your teeth. Next, the surface of the tooth will be treated so that the resin material will bond to the tooth. The resin is applied and molded and smoothed to the desired shape. Then, a special light is used to harden the material. Finally, Dr. Naini will shape and polish the material on the bonded tooth to ensure it matches your other teeth.

Will dental bonding hurt?
No. Dental bonding is a simple and quick procedure. Anesthesia is often not even necessary unless the tooth to be bonded is already decayed. The entire procedure can usually be complete in under an hour.

What are the benefits of dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a simple and quick procedure that can give you a brightened and more pleasing smile in just one visit. Because of its simplicity, dental bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic procedures.

How long does dental bonding material last?
Bonding material typically lasts from three years to ten years before having to be replaced or touched up.

Do bonded teeth require special care?
Because bonded material may chip, you should avoid biting your fingernails or chewing on any other hard objects. In general, you can take care of your bonded teeth the same as your other teeth by simply following good dental hygiene practices. Brush your teeth after every meal, floss daily and see Dr. Naini for regular check-ups.
