Dental Bonding

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a type of cosmetic procedure that helps to enhance and correct the front of your teeth. Bonding material is matched to your existing teeth to create a flawless and natural finish. The dental bonding helps to fill in cracks, gaps and chips that might have caused you to feel badly about your smile. Dental bonding is noninvasive and is typically done with little to no local anesthetic.

Why would you need Dental Bonding?

At Mykleby & Thao Family Dentistry, we can perform an exam and take x-rays to determine if dental bonding is right for you. Our goal is to help you feel better about your appearance and the look of your smile. Some of the main reasons to consider bonding include:

What makes you a good candidate for Dental Bonding?

The procedure for dental bonding is practically noninvasive. Little to absolutely no anesthetic is needed to have bonding done. Because of this, it’s a great procedure for most patients and can benefit the person’s smile. You will first come in for an exam and consultation before we can determine if bonding is right for your needs. Dental bonding can last for up to 10 years, so it’s a long-term cosmetic option that you won’t have to worry or think about.

What happens during the procedure for Dental Bonding?

Here at Mykleby & Thao Family Dentistry, we make the dental bonding procedure quick, easy and painless. The front teeth are first prepared for the composite resin material. The material is matched specifically to your tooth color so that the bonding is virtually undetectable. The doctor will shape the composite resin to your tooth in the area to be repaired. The material is hardened using a curing light. The area is smoothed for a perfect and flawless finish. You can then leave the office and enjoy years of natural, realistic-looking bonding.
