What Is Dental Bonding?

If only there was a simple, pain-free, zero-downtime way to fix all the tiny flaws in your smile. You know — the hairline cracks, chipped corners, coffee stains… 

As it turns out, there is a way. 

Dental bonding, a specialty service offered at Arya Dental in Fullerton, California, is a quick, painless way to restore shine and symmetry to your smile. In this article, learn why Saeed Mokhayeri, DDS, and Hengameh Safarcherati, DDS, are such big fans of this procedure and how you can get started. 

What is tooth bonding?

Tooth bonding, or teeth bonding, is a dental procedure that involves restoring the appearance of imperfect teeth. The dentists at Arya Dental use a composite resin that matches the natural color of your teeth, applying it by hand to your affected tooth or teeth. 

The procedure is super simple and only requires one visit to the dentist, unlike some other tooth-replacement procedures (such as dental implants). Here’s what you can expect at your tooth bonding appointment: 

  1. Your dentist chooses the resin that most closely matches your natural teeth.
  2. Your dentist then grinds the surface of your teeth slightly, making them rougher so the resin sticks better. 
  3. Your dentist applies an adhesive liquid to the surface of your teeth.
  4. Your dentist applies the resin and molds it to your tooth, then hardens it with ultraviolet light. 

And voila — your previously imperfect tooth now looks perfect! 

What can tooth bonding fix?

Dental bonding can fix all of the common tooth flaws, including: 

Tooth bonding can also benefit people who have vulnerable teeth, tooth decay or exposed tooth roots.
