What Is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure where a tooth-colored resin material is applied and hardened with a special light, bonding it to the tooth to improve its appearance and provide structural support. This technique is commonly used to repair chipped or discolored teeth, close gaps, or reshape teeth. The dental bonding process is relatively quick and minimally invasive, making it a popular option for enhancing the aesthetics of one’s smile.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?

Cosmetic dental bonding can offer a number of benefits to patients, including:

How Is the Dental Bonding Procedure Performed?

Dental bonding is generally a painless and straightforward cosmetic procedure, and the entire process can typically be completed in a single office visit. Dr. Miller begins by selecting a resin material that matches the patient’s natural tooth color for optimal aesthetic results. The targeted tooth or teeth are then prepared to ensure the resin can properly bond and adhere to the tooth surface. Once the resin is applied, Dr. Miller artfully molds and shapes it over the tooth surface to achieve the desired appearance, addressing issues like chips, discoloration, or gaps. A special light is used to harden and bond the material to the tooth. Once set, Dr. Miller further shapes and polishes the bonded area for a beautiful, seamless result.
