What is a Dental Bonding Treatment?

If you’ve been to the dentist before, you probably think you’ve seen most of what a dentist does, but perhaps you’ve heard of dental bonding and are wondering what this procedure is for and how it works. Bonding isn’t just any ordinary dental procedure. It’s a restorative dental procedure designed to rebuild and reshape damaged teeth so that they look and feel like new again while providing some protection from further damage. The best part is, with dental bonding, your smile will look completely natural and as good as new without a whole lot of work, pain, or dealing with tricky dental applications.

If you’ve never heard of bonding from your dentist before, then it’s a good idea to learn all about the procedure, what it does, how it can help, and whether it’s a viable option for your unique situation. Once you have all the information, you can consult with your dentist about whether bonding is the right choice for you. Thankfully, the bonding process isn’t overly complicated and can be used in various situations to restore damaged teeth.

Before you talk to your dentist, let us explain all about bonding and how it works.

The setup process

Before anything can begin, the dentist will need to assess the damaged tooth in question and its area. This starts with a relatively standard dental examination where the dentist will ensure the tooth is in good enough shape for the bonding process to continue. After the examination, the dentist will start by cleaning the tooth and the surrounding affected area. Once cleaning is complete, the dentist will prepare the tooth for bonding by sanding the tooth with a rough abrasive agent to accept the composite resin used during bonding.

The bonding process

Following the prep process, the dentist will begin applying a special composite resin to the damaged area of the tooth. This resin is matched to the patient’s natural tooth color to look as uniform as possible with the rest of the teeth. The dentist will then begin sculpting the composite resin in all the damaged areas of the tooth until the tooth’s shape matches that of the original tooth and the rest of the patient’s teeth.

The dental bonding process is typically pain-free, but if the process drakes place near the tooth’s nerves, the dentist may use anesthesia to prevent the patient from feeling any pain at all. Once the sculpting is complete, the dentist will review the process and adjust, after which the dentist will harden the resin in place using a UV light.

If everything looks good, then the process is complete, and the patient can go about their daily life as usual. If the tooth still needs work, the dentist can continue the sculpting process even after the resin has hardened to make sure the tooth is as natural as possible.
