BONDING

Composite Dental Bonding

Over time, the appearance of our smile can change, and unfortunately, this isn’t always for the better. The lifestyle that we lead, and the food and drink that we consume, can all contribute towards the decline in the color and condition of our teeth. Staining and discoloration is very common, caused by things such as drinking coffee and red wine, and smoking. Meanwhile, despite the durability of the enamel of our teeth, little chips and indentations can occur as natural wear and tear. These visual imperfections may not be huge, but the way that they make us feel about our smile can be monumental. If you dislike your teeth, you may feel that it impacts on your ability to talk, smile and laugh around other people. You may smile with a closed mouth in photographs or cover your mouth with your hand when you eat. Some people are so self-conscious about their teeth that it holds them back professionally and socially.


Fortunately, there is no need to live with smile imperfections. There are many cosmetic treatments that can

transform the way that our teeth look, with one of the most popular being dental bonding.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a simple and straightforward cosmetic dental treatment that is designed to improve the esthetic appearance of teeth. This process, which is nearly always non-invasive, is carried out using a special tooth-colored resin that is pasted directly onto the front-facing enamel of your teeth, and then molded to cover the imperfections that are causing you concern. Once our cosmetic dentistry team are happy with the appearance of your teeth, the resin will be hardened using a special light, which bonds it permanently to your teeth, and then polished so that your new smile is shiny, attractive and ready to share with the world. In the vast majority of cases, there is no need to remove any of the natural enamel of teeth, meaning that the entire process is non-invasive and there is no need for any anesthetic.

What cosmetic issues can dental bonding be used to correct?

Dental bonding is a successful treatment for correcting a variety of different cosmetic issues, such as:

  • Covering stains and discoloration

  • Hiding cracks, chips and indentations

  • Closing very small gaps between the teeth

  • Making short, undersized teeth taller so that they fit better with the rest of your smile

  • Adding thickness to teeth that seem too thin, or are set back from others in the arch

In addition to addressing any cosmetic issues that you might have, dental bonding also has the ability to strengthen the natural enamel of your teeth, providing greater protection against further damage or decay.

STEPS IN THE BONDING PROCEDURE

Step 1


Examination and diagnosis along with the full 3D scan of teeth

Step 2


Treatment consult with mock up will be implemented.

Step 3


Prep and placement of direct composite veneers.

How long does dental bonding last?

Dental bonding is a very durable and long-lasting solution, and if your teeth receive proper care and attention, bonding could last for up to a decade. However, if any maintenance is needed, this can be done very simply and without needing to remove any existing bonding material. Instead, further resin is pasted onto the affected tooth to repair the existing bonding.

Testimonials

Absolutely wonderful experience. Dr. Woodyard explains everything very well and is a true professional. The whole staff is very accommodating and caring.


Jay S

Dr. Woodyard has been my general dentist for more than 10 years and he’s always been so concerned and professional. He is up to date on all the newest innovative treatments. He has done several crowns for me and I was able to get it all done in one day since they were made with the latest technology in house by Dr. Woodyard. I would highly recommend him for all dental needs.

Melissa W

Best dentist I've been to! Very professional operation in all respects. Love that Dr. Woodyard does the majority of usual procedures right in house -- including crowns and root canals. Getting a crown in one visit is truly amazing. Mary is a wonderful hygienist with a solid knowledge of her area of expertise. You won't be disappointed!
