Written by Dr. Collins on Apr 18, 2017

If you are looking to improve the appearance or the structure of your smile, then you may have already heard about dental bonding. Dental bonding is a versatile, quick, and affordable treatment that can help you achieve your dream smile without undergoing extensive procedures. In today’s short article our Cheney dentists are answering some commonly asked questions about dental bonding. We hope that this information helps you start to determine whether bonding may be right for you!

Q: What material is used in dental bonding?
A: Dental bonding is done with composite resin; this material starts off as soft and malleable, but it hardens and bonds to the tooth when our dental team cures it. By using composite resin, our dental team is able to customize the color, shape, and thickness of your bonding.

Q: How long does it take to complete dental bonding?
A: One of the major advantages of dental bonding over other treatments is that the entire bonding process can often be completed in just one appointment. This means that you can conceivably come into our office with dark teeth or chipped enamel, and leave the same day with a refreshed smile.

Q: Is dental bonding painful?
A: No, this treatment is very comfortable. If you are prone to dental anxiety of significant dental sensitivity, our dental team can give you more information about relaxation treatments that may help you. In general, however, dental bonding is painless and stress-free.

Q: How do I know if dental bonding is right for me?
A: The best way to determine whether dental bonding can help you is to schedule a consultation with your dental team. Your dentist will talk to you about your dental goals, and assess the current state of your smile in order to figure out whether dental bonding is appropriate for your teeth. Because dental bonding is versatile and highly customizable, it is suitable for a wide variety of people.
