Feel Confident in Your Smile with Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a non-invasive cosmetic technique that uses tooth-colored composite resin to address minor issues such as cracks and discoloration. Dr. Randal Watson is renowned for his aesthetic skills and compassionate care. He is a great listener who will work with you to design a treatment plan that achieves your goals. Whether you wish to address a chipped a tooth or more extensive cosmetic flaws, Dr. Watson can provide bonding to help you achieve the smile you desire.

Dental bonding can quickly and effectively conceal chips and other imperfections.

Transforming Teeth with Composite Resin

Using the same material as tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding can conceal a wide range of cosmetic imperfections. Unlike porcelain veneers, this procedure usually requires no alteration of the tooth. This makes it a good alternative for patients who desire a minimal procedure, or are unsure about committing to veneers.

Is it Right for Me?

Bonding can address multiple issues at once, including:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Gaps
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Discoloration that does not respond to whitening

To determine if dental bonding is right for you, you will meet with Dr. Watson for a personal consultation. He will examine the health of your teeth and gums. Any tooth decay or gum disease you are experiencing must be resolved before moving forward with bonding or any other cosmetic treatment

What Can I Expect during Treatment?

Bonding is a simple and painless procedure. Dr. Watson will begin by using a shade guide to choose a color that matches your teeth. He will then use a mildly acidic solution to prepare the surface of the teeth.

Dr. Watson will apply the composite resin in layers, molding it to the desired shape and size. He will hold a curing light over each tooth to harden the material. After it has hardened, he can make further adjustments to the bonded teeth. Finally, he will give them a polish.

The entire procedure can take between 30 minutes and an hour. Your individual treatment time will depend on the number of teeth that require bonding. Once your treatment is complete, you can expect a more beautiful and symmetrical smile. There is no downtime after the procedure.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding offers numerous benefits. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, dental bonding is reversible. It is an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers that can provide a dramatic improvement in appearance and self-confidence. In fact, many patients choose to undergo bonding as a way to determine whether they wish to eventually pursue veneers. With proper care, dental bonding can last many years. When performed by an experienced cosmetic dentist, bonding can provide a significant boost in confidence.
