Dental Bonding Q & A



What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a technique in which the team at Woodland Lakes Dental Studio uses a composite resin to cover up minor imperfections in your teeth. The resin is designed to match the color of your surrounding teeth, providing you with a more even smile.

What can dental bonding correct?

Dental bonding is a great technique for:

  • Repairing cracks or chips
  • Filling in cavities
  • Covering a discolored tooth
  • Closing gaps in your teeth
  • Making teeth appear longer
  • Reshaping a tooth

There are many applications for dental bonding and the best way to find out whether it’s right for you is to sit down with one of the dental bonding experts at Woodland Lakes Dental Studio.

How long does dental bonding take?

One of the biggest advantages of dental bonding is that the team at Woodland Lakes Dental Studio can perform the treatment in just one visit. Once they’ve determined the best approach for improving the appearance of your teeth, your bonding expert gets to work and files the surface areas that they’re bonding. This first step ensures that the composite resin adheres to your teeth.

Next, they apply a resin that matches the existing color of your surrounding teeth, ensuring that the dental bonding blends in perfectly. After shaping and trimming, your dental expert polishes the new surface.

In most cases, there’s no need for anesthesia. If your dental expert uses dental bonding to fill in areas of decay, you may need local anesthesia in case there are any exposed nerves.

The entire process takes about an hour, after which you’re free to go out and show off your newly improved teeth.

How do I take care of my dental bonding?

You take care of your dental bonding as you do your existing teeth, through daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental cleanings at Woodland Lakes Dental Studio. Dental bonding isn’t as strong as your natural teeth, however, so it’s important that you steer clear of habits that may damage the bonding, such as chewing ice or your fingernails.
