What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that’s used to reshape your teeth and enhance their appearance. It uses tooth-colored dental resin that Dr. Wu will apply directly to your tooth. This is similar to the material used for tooth-colored fillings. 

Once the bonding material is in place, Dr. Wu will shape and sculpt it, then harden it and trim it to enhance your smile. Bonding can be used to treat a wide variety of cosmetic issues including minor chips, uneven teeth, gaps between front teeth, tooth stains, and more.

The Benefits Of Dental Bonding


Unlike crowns or veneers, dental bonding is an “additive” procedure. In other words, the resin simply adds bulk to your teeth, and there’s no need to trim or remove any healthy enamel to prepare for dental bonding. This makes it a non-invasive procedure.

Immediate Results

With dental bonding, you can have multiple teeth treated in just one appointment and enjoy immediate results. This makes it a lot faster than alternatives like veneers, which usually take several appointments over 2-3 weeks.

Affordable Treatment

Because it’s a simple treatment, dental bonding is usually cheaper than other treatments like veneers. This makes it a great option if you’re on a budget but you still want to enhance your smile.

The Dental Bonding Treatment Process

Preparing your tooth

To begin the process, Dr. Wu will clean the treatment area and apply a special acid to your tooth. This acid roughens the surface very slightly, which ensures that the composite material can bond tightly to your tooth.

Bonding Application

Once he has prepared your tooth, Dr. Wu will apply a tooth-colored composite material that will match your natural enamel perfectly. Then he will use special tools to shape the composite and enhance the shape of your tooth.

Final Trimming and Polishing

After the overall shape looks right, Dr. Wu will use a special light to activate the bonding resin. Then, he will trim and adjust the resin until it looks and feels perfect. This process will be repeated if you are having multiple teeth treated with dental bonding.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

Does Dental Bonding Require Special Care Or Maintenance?

For the most part, the answer is “no.” You can brush and floss your teeth just like you normally would. You should also make sure that you see Dr. Wu for a teeth cleaning and oral exam every six months. During this time, he can check on your bonding and your teeth to make sure your mouth is healthy.

You also should avoid biting into extremely hard foods with your bonded teeth, as this could weaken or even break them over time. Chewing non-food objects like ice or your fingernails, or using your teeth as tools to open bags or rip tape can also damage them, so you should avoid doing these things to keep your newly-bonded teeth looking beautiful.
