What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves applying a tooth-colored dental composite material to the front of teeth, then using a special light to cure and harden the composite. Dental composites are formulated to match the look, color, and feel of the teeth, and once hardened, the composite provides structural reinforcement for the teeth. Composite bonding can be used for a variety of purposes:

  • Repair & Restoration: If one or multiple teeth have minor chips or cracks, composite bonding can repair these problems and reinforce the structural integrity of the tooth.
  • Appearance: Dental bonding may be used to improve the appearance of the smile, providing a white, healthy, beautiful front layer to the teeth.
  • Reshaping: In some cases, we can use composite bonding to close gaps in the teeth and fix other cosmetic issues.

The Composite Bonding Procedure

The dental bonding process is fairly simple and straightforward, and we can usually complete the entire procedure in just one visit at our Florissant office. As with all forms of dental treatment, the first step is a comprehensive examination and evaluation of your dental health and condition with Dr. Paul S. Herrin. If he decides that dental bonding is the best treatment for your situation, he may opt to begin treatment right away or defer to a later appointment.

The dental bonding procedure itself is non-invasive and fairly convenient. After thoroughly cleaning your teeth and mouth, your Florissant dentist will use a special tool to apply a liquid composite resin to the front of your teeth. Depending on your needs, we may choose to apply the resin to all of the teeth in your mouth, only to those that show when smiling, or to just a few specific teeth. Your dentist will apply the resin in layers, using a curing light to harden each layer before applying the next. With each new layer, your dentist will work to shape the composite to look as natural and healthy as possible. After finishing the application and shaping process, your dentist will apply a finish to seal the composite and complete your healthy new smile.
