What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is the use of composite resin material (also used for tooth-colored fillings) to conceal or repair smile irregularities. The procedure takes its name from the method of preparing teeth to receive the composite resin material. Bonding is the uniting of two materials through microscopic dental cementing. This involves the application of an acidic substance to create ridges in tooth enamel that allow the composite resin to bond more naturally with teeth. After years of discussing the two procedures together, the name cosmetic bonding or dental bonding was applied to correcting smile flaws with composite resin.

Who Should Consider Dental Bonding?

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

At Distinctive Smiles of Dublin, we encourage patients to choose the most conservative treatment option that achieves their desired smile goals. That means finding cosmetic or restorative treatments that preserves natural dental structure while removing or concealing smile irregularities. In many cases, cosmetic bonding is the best treatment option. Patients who determine dental bonding is the best way to enhance their smiles should expect a quick, painless cosmetic dentistry treatment completed in just one visit. First, the dentist removes any decay. Then, the dentist applies an etchant to create small bumps in the enamel. This etching of teeth makes it possible for the composite resin material to bond effectively to the tooth. Finally, using a composite resin material that matches the natural tooth color, the dentist conceals or repairs chipped, cracked, gapped, or stained teeth.
