What is Direct Bonding?

Dental bonding uses a natural-looking substance called composite resin to help reshape and complete damaged teeth. The resin is made of a combination of materials including fine particles of glass and acrylic. This material can also be used for other procedures such as fillings.

Problems That Can Be Fixed With Direct Bonding

Patients who are looking to fix a defected or imperfect tooth often go with direct bonding because it can repair minor issues quickly. Some problems that this effective procedure can fix include:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Alter misshapen teeth

The Bonding Procedure

One reason that patients often choose direct bonding over other procedures such as porcelain veneers is that it takes place over a single appointment. This way, you can enjoy your improved smile immediately after you leave our office. Dr. Sage will begin repairing your tooth by roughening the surface with a special substance to help the composite resin bond with your tooth.

He’ll choose the shade of resin that matches closest with the rest of your teeth and applies and molds it to complete your damaged tooth. Using a special light, we’ll cure the putty so it’ll harden and become nearly indistinguishable from your natural tooth. After it has cured, Dr. Sage will make alterations by trimming and shaping it. After it’s polished, you’ll be surprised to find a seamless and complete smile in the place of your old one!

Benefits of Direct Bonding

Dental bonding is one of the easiest, fastest, and most cost-effective cosmetic procedures patients can get to improve their smile and boost their self-confidence. Unlike other treatments, which are customized in a dental lab and can take some time, bonding is done on-the-spot by Dr. Sage. Additionally, with dental bonding, there’s minimal to no alteration of your natural teeth needed, unlike with porcelain veneers. Because it’s typically a painless procedure, you won’t have to worry about receiving any kind of anesthesia either.

Cosmetic bonding can offer patients a variety of benefits and improve their smiles without breaking their monthly budget. Dr. Sage, a cosmetic dentist in Northgate, can help you achieve your desired grin when you schedule an appointment today!
