Written by Dr. Follette on Mar 15, 2016

Dental bonding is an amazingly versatile and effective treatment that can help dental patients achieve their cosmetic and restorative dentistry goals. Our Santa Monica dentist completes dental bonding all the time! We want to help you figure out whether dental bonding may be appropriate for you, so we’ve put together this short Q and A about all things dental bonding. Let’s get started!

Q: What kinds of things can your dental team do with dental bonding?

A: One of the best things about dental bonding is that we can use bonding to address a range of common aesthetic and structural dental issues. Dental bonding can cover dark and stained enamel with bright white resin. We also use dental bonding to repair cracked and chipped teeth, and to refine the shapes of poorly proportioned teeth.

Q: How long does it take to complete dental bonding?

A: Generally, our dental team is able to complete the entire dental bonding process in just one appointment. We’ll apply the resin to your tooth, shape it to meet your needs, and then cure the resin. Once the dental resin has cured, it will be strong, durable, and bonded seamlessly to your dental enamel.

Q: Why do people choose dental bonding?

A: Dental bonding offers a number of benefits over other treatment options. Bonding is quite affordable, and it delivers full results after just one appointment. Plus, dental bonding is totally customizable; we shade the dental resin to match the patient’s natural enamel, and dental resin is so malleable that we can shape it into whatever configuration necessary.
