Understanding The Dental Bonding Process

Before you can have dental bonding, you’ll need to come in for a consultation with Dr. Mina Girgis. He will examine your mouth, and help you determine if dental bonding is the right cosmetic treatment for you. If you are approved for bonding, you’ll schedule a follow-up appointment.

At your next appointment, your teeth will be cleaned, and then an acid solution will be applied to the teeth which are being bonded. This acid is used to roughen up the surface of your tooth, and ensure the dental resin can adhere to your tooth strongly. Usually, no enamel must be removed during this process, so numbing is typically not required for dental bonding.

After this, Dr. Girgis will select a dental resin that matches the color of your teeth perfectly, and apply it directly to your tooth. He will use special tools to sculpt it into the proper shape and size, and then he will use a UV light to activate the material, and harden it. Once the resin has been hardened, Dr. Girgis will trim it further using a dental drill, to remove excess material and ensure that the bonded tooth looks and feels just like a natural tooth. Then, it will be polished and buffed, and the procedure is complete. The dental bonding process is minimally-invasive, and usually takes only about 30-60 minutes per tooth.

Who Is A Candidate For Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding from Brite Clean Smiles is a good option to treat most minor cosmetic issues such as severe tooth staining, minor cracks and damage to your teeth, and gaps in your smile. However, it is important to note that bonding is only intended to be cosmetic.

If you have serious issues with your teeth, such as severe damage to one or more teeth, multiple cavities, or gum disease, you are likely not a good candidate for dental bonding. 

If you have good overall oral health and only minor cosmetic issues with your smile, bonding may be right for you. To find out if you’re a good candidate, schedule an appointment with Dr. Mina Girgis right away.

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Bonding?

If you’re considering dental bonding, there are a few benefits of this procedure which may make it a good option for you. Let’s explore the benefits of dental bonding in more detail now.

  • Inexpensive treatment – Dental bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic treatment, and is very inexpensive compared to alternatives like veneers and cosmetic crowns. This makes it a good option if you would like to restore your smile on a budget.
  • Get immediate results – Unlike veneers and crowns, which take several weeks to manufacture, dental bonding allows you to get immediate results in just a single appointment.
  • Non-invasive – In most cases, little or no enamel must be removed during the dental bonding process. This means you don’t have to worry about the discomfort of drilling. In most cases, patients do not even need their mouths to be numbed during the bonding process.
