If you have any cosmetic problems with your smile – such as chipped, decayed, cracked, or discolored teeth – then you may want to include dental bonding as one of your options for restoring your smile to its former brilliance.

Dental bonding is a procedure we’re proud to offer here at Personal Dental Care in Richmond, Virginia. However, it’s not a procedure many people are familiar with. So let’s examine what dental bonding entails.

What is it?

Dental bonding is pretty simple. Your dentist applies a tooth-colored composite resin to the affected areas of your teeth, and then mold and shape the resin to match the natural look and shape of your teeth. It’s a very simple procedure that can often be completed in a single appointment.

How does it happen?

You’ll need a consultation appointment to determine how your affected teeth will be fixed, but this generally doesn’t take too long. Once the plan is in place, you’ll visit your dentist for the bonding.

Your tooth has to be prepared first – cleaned so the resin will adhere properly – then the resin is shaped to look like your teeth.
Then, the resin is polished until it matches the rest of your teeth.

Bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic procedures, so if you’re looking into smile restoration, it’s worth your time to call us at 804-554-3767 to get more information about dental bonding.
