Create a Perfect Smile

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth. This versatile treatment involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the surface of your teeth, which is then hardened with a special light to bond the material to the tooth. Dental bonding can be completed in just one visit, making it a convenient option for busy patients. At Family Dentistry of Lakewood, we use the latest techniques to ensure that your bonding treatment is effective and natural-looking.

  • What is dental bonding?

     Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the teeth to correct various imperfections. The resin is molded and shaped before being hardened with a special light, which bonds it securely to the tooth surface.

  • What issues can dental bonding address?

    Dental bonding can address various dental problems, including repairing chipped or cracked teeth, closing gaps between teeth, changing the shape of teeth, and covering up discoloration. It also protects exposed tooth roots caused by gum recession.

  • What is the procedure for dental bonding?

    1. The dentist selects a resin color that matches your natural teeth.
    2. The tooth surface is prepared by roughening it slightly and applying a conditioning liquid. 
    3. The resin is then applied, molded, and shaped to the desired form.
    4. The resin is hardened with a special curing light, and the bonded area is polished to match the rest of the tooth.

    The entire process usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth.
