Bonding

What is Dental Bonding?

Bonding is an alternative to porcelain veneers, and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or mis-arranged.

How does it work?

The tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by Dr Trager or Dr Rebhun. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to a natural appearance.

Considerations

The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit to Somerdale Family Dental, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Bonding typically lasts three to five years before need of repair.
