What Is Bonding?

Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve person’s smile.

Tooth bonding is used for a variety of purposes:

  • To correct a tooth gap
  • To cover discolorations
  • To repair chipped/cracked teeth
  • To make teeth look longer
  • To change the shape of teeth
  • As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
  • To protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede

Bonding takes approximately 30-60 minutes in a single visit to our office. Tooth bonding is dependent upon the artistic ability of the dentist, since the work is done “freehand” without taking impressions or using a laboratory. The tooth must be color-matched, sculpted, and polished to produce a beautiful and natural-looking result.

Dr. Rogowska is specially trained in tooth bonding techniques and has experience in cosmetic dentistry.

The Bonding Procedure

First, we select a shade of composite resin that is as close as possible to the shade of your teeth. Then, Dr. Rogowska applies a liquid that helps the bonding material adhere to the teeth. The composite resin is applied to the teeth, smoothed into the desired shape, and hardened with a high intensity light. After the resin has hardened, Dr. Rogowska makes a few final touches and polish the teeth being treated until they resemble the other teeth. Dr. Rogowska can repair multiple teeth during a single visit.
