Bonds Q & A

What are dental bonds?

Dental bonds are a tooth-colored resin material bonded to your teeth in a procedure called dental bonding. Dr. Eizadi uses dental bonds to repair teeth, close gaps between teeth, or change the shape of teeth to restore your smile and improve the functioning of your bite.

Dental bonds resolve a variety of dental problems. Dr. Eizadi uses dental bonds to:

  • Repair decayed, chipped, or cracked teeth
  • Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • Make teeth look longer
  • Protect a portion of the tooth root exposed by receding gums

Dental bonds can also replace amalgam or silver fillings as a cosmetic alternative. Dr. Eizadi helps you to decide if dental bonding is appropriate for your case.

What can I expect during my dental bonding procedure?

The single appointment required for dental bonding typically takes 30-60 minutes.

As the first step, Dr. Eizadi uses a shade guide to select a durable composite resin material that closely matches the color of your natural teeth. In the second step, she usually roughens the surface of your tooth before applying a conditioning liquid to help the bonding substance securely stick and bond to your tooth.

Next, Dr. Eizadi applies the tooth-colored putty-like resin to your tooth and molds and smooths the resin to the desired shape before hardening it with a UV light that bonds the material to the surface of your tooth.

Finally, she trims, shapes, and polishes the bonded material to blend with and match the gloss of your natural teeth.

What are the benefits of dental bonding?

Dental bonding is typically a quick, one-time in-office procedure and a popular choice changing the appearance of teeth because it’s one of the least expensive and most convenient dental procedures that provides cosmetic and functional benefits.

Dental bonding is more affordable and takes less time than other dental options, such as veneers, because no outside dental lab is involved in the process. And, unless Dr. Eizadi uses dental bonding to treat a painful tooth, anesthesia isn’t usually necessary.

Dental bonding is an aesthetically pleasing option to restore your smile, and the results last approximately three to 10 years or longer. Call or schedule your dental visit with Dr. Eizadi online to get started.
