Who Should Consider Dental Bonding?

Are your teeth jagged or misaligned? Do you struggle with large gaps between your teeth?

If your dental health challenges are severe, Dr. Sandhu may talk with you about more aggressive procedures such as Invisalign® teeth straightening trays or porcelain veneers.

Bonding, on the other hand, is well-suited to minor teeth repairs. The treatment is accomplished using a tooth-colored resin, which the dentist can mold to fill tiny chips or slightly reshape a problem tooth. Once the dentist's repair is complete, the resin hardens under a curing light.

When you first visit with Dr. Sandhu about your dental health and cosmetic concerns, she will evaluate your teeth and gums, paying especially close attention to the severity of any gum disease issues as well as any minor defects in your teeth.

Once your dentist has determined that dental bonding is right for you, she will select a shade of resin that matches the pallor of your natural teeth as closely as possible. She may use that resin to fill a crack or to diminish a gap between your teeth by slightly enlarging each of those teeth toward the gap. Once completed, there will be no visible line between your natural tooth and the bonding material.
