Tooth Bonding

An Affordable Way to Restore Your Smile


Before and After Tooth Bonding.If you're like most people, you worry that restoring your smile to the pearly white, crack-free and dazzling feature it was in your youth will cost you a lot of money and require a significant amount of time. The truth is, however, that you don't have to break the bank or set aside hours of your time to restore your smile. You just need to talk with your Diamond Bar dentist about tooth bonding.

What Is Dental Bonding?

Tooth bonding is a process that utilizes tooth-colored materials called "composite resins" to replace missing tooth structure or hide minor defects, such as discoloration, chips or even minor spacing issues. The composite resin contains a mixture of smooth polished glass and plastic and helps to achieve a durable and translucent finished result. Amazingly, the composite bonds with the rest of the tooth so that, when applied correctly, it is impossible to distinguish from the neighboring teeth.Tooth Bonding - Step by Step.

Bonding does not last as long as dental veneers, but because of how relatively easy and non-invasive the process it, it is preferable for many patients. Teens especially benefit from bonding, as most teens' teeth have not fully matured to the point where a more permanent restoration solution would make financial sense.

The Bonding Process

The bonding process is a relatively short process that our family dentist can usually accomplish in as little as 30 minutes to an hour. There is no laboratory work involved, and our team can complete the process from start to finish right in the treatment room. Once we are satisfied that the tooth looks great and perfectly aligns with your bite, we will complete the process by polishing your new tooth to perfection.
