Do you hate that small gap between your front teeth? Is the shape of a tooth throwing off the rest of your smile? Our Naperville, IL, dentist Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi provides a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments to help improve your smile and your confidence. Find out more about dental bonding and how it could help you.

What is dental bonding?

Bonding is a simple and completely non-invasive dental procedure that uses the same material that fills cavities to also correct minor flaws in a tooth. The tooth-colored resin can be molded and shaped to the tooth to hide,

  • Small chips and cracks
  • Signs of wear
  • Stains caused by smoking
  • Defects in the enamel
  • Smalls gaps between teeth

Bonding has the ability to slightly alter the shape, color and even alignment of teeth. This reshaping treatment is performed in a single dental visit and offers immediate long-lasting results.

How is bonding performed?

We will first apply a gel to the front surface of the tooth, which will roughen the surface enough for the resin to stick to the enamel. Then the gel is rinsed off and the tooth is dried.

From there, we will choose the resin that most closely matches the color of your tooth so that it blends in. Once the resin is bonded to the tooth you won’t even notice it. The resin will then be applied to the area or areas of the tooth and shaped. Once shaped, your dentist will direct a special light over the tooth to quickly harden the resin into place. With a final polish, the tooth is now good to go. This entire process typically takes about 30 minutes.

How long does dental bonding last?

How well you care for your smile as well as certain habits can affect the longevity of your newly bonded tooth. By visiting your dentist every six months for routine checkups, they can also check the bonded tooth and determine when it needs to be replaced.
