Dental Bonding Procedure

Cosmetic bonding processes usually last no longer than an hour, unless you want to restore more than one tooth at a time. During your appointment with us, you will undergo the following steps:

  1. Consultation – before starting the procedure, our dentists will find the best-suited shade of bonding materials. These should be of the same color as your current teeth. In the event that your smile needs whitening, it is better to whiten before bonding. Otherwise, the cosmetic resins will have a different color from your natural teeth.
  2. Preparation – the restoring tooth will be isolated from others with special dental strips that don’t permit the resin to bond with adjacent teeth. Then, the tooth surface will be etched with a special acid solution to make it rough enough to start the procedure. To increase resin adherence, the tooth will also be cleaned with a conditioning liquid, providing the highest standards in dental care.

3. Bonding – once preparation is complete, some amount of bonding material will be put onto your tooth using a professional dental tool. Then, the material will be molded and shaped to create an ideal form of your tooth. It may be necessary to apply several layers of the composite resin to ensure the best length and thickness.

4. Polishing – this phase is important to create the right shape of the restored tooth. The dental strips will be removed and the applied material will be polished with a fine dental drill. Polishing is completed only when the bonding material looks like a natural part of your tooth
