Dental Bonding

    Los Altos Cosmetic Dentist

    A beautiful smile is an asset, and if you have chipped, cracked, stained, or otherwise damaged teeth, you may feel self-conscious about your smile. Fortunately, various cosmetic dental treatments can correct these imperfections and give you a smile you can be proud of. One of these treatments is dental bonding. Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to your teeth to repair damage and restore the appearance of your smile. At Saumya Ram, DDS, dental bonding can fill small cavities, close spaces between the teeth, make teeth look longer, or change the shape of teeth. With proper care and regular brushing and flossing, your bonded tooth can last for several years before needing to be replaced.

    The Procedure for Dental Bonding

    Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to a tooth and hardened with a special light, which "bonds" the material to the tooth to restore or improve a person's smile. The dentist in Los Altos, CA, will roughen the tooth's surface and apply a liquid conditioner before applying the composite resin. Once the liquid sets, the dentist will apply the tooth-colored, putty-like resin material and mold it into place. After the material is molded into the desired shape, a special light is used to harden the material. After hardening, the dentist will further trim and shape it and then polish it to match the sheen of the surrounding teeth.

    The Benefits of Dental Bonding

    • Dental bonding in Los Altos, CA, is an effective way to improve the appearance of teeth. It can repair chipped or cracked teeth, close gaps between teeth, and cover stains or discoloration.
    • Bonding is a relatively quick and painless procedure. It usually doesn't require anesthesia; multiple teeth can often be treated in a single appointment.
    • Unlike some other cosmetic procedures, dental bonding typically involves minimal removal of the tooth's enamel, making it a conservative option for enhancing the appearance of teeth.
    • Dental bonding is often more cost-effective than alternatives like veneers or crowns, making it an attractive option for those seeking cosmetic improvements on a budget.
    • The resin used in dental bonding can be color-matched to your natural teeth, resulting in a natural and seamless look. When done correctly, it's difficult to distinguish between bonded teeth and natural teeth.
    • The cosmetic improvements achieved through dental bonding can boost self-esteem and confidence, as patients feel more comfortable with their smiles.
