Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an alternative to veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or misaligned.

Tooth Bonding in Fairhope, AL

Dental bonding, also known as tooth bonding, is a quick and straightforward dental procedure used to fix chipped or misshapen teeth for cosmetic and restorative purposes. The process involves lightly etching the tooth surface and applying a bonding agent. After the bonding agent sets, a plastic resin is placed and sculpted into the desired shape. Once the resin hardens, it is trimmed, smoothed, and polished to match the appearance of the surrounding teeth.

Bonding is used to repair or improve the appearance of a tooth. It’s commonly used in cosmetic procedures to cover chipped teeth but can also be used as an alternative to fillings, to close up spaces, or to fill in gaps.

  • Dental bonding vs. veneers—what's best for me?

    Dental bonding and veneers are two dental procedures used to fix broken teeth or cavities, but they can also enhance the appearance of healthy teeth. Veneers are applied to the entire tooth’s front surface, while bonding is only applied to a small portion.

    Both bonding and veneers can help improve your smile and adjust spacing. However, in most cases, dental bonding is used for emergency situations. If you have a cracked or fractured tooth, bonding is the quickest way to repair it and only requires one appointment. Bonding is also a great solution for a quick fix for a small to moderate defect or cavity on your front tooth or teeth.

    It’s important to note that veneers are an alternative solution that provides a superior, longer-lasting cosmetic result. While they require more time and investment upfront, they are generally considered a better option for long-term cosmetic improvement.

  • How long does dental bonding last?

    Dental bonding typically lasts up to 10 years before needing to be touched up or replaced, depending on factors such as the location of the bonding, oral habits, and the quality of care the bonded teeth receive. Proper dental hygiene and avoiding habits like chewing on hard objects can help extend the lifespan of dental bonding. Regular dental check-ups are also crucial to monitor the condition of the bonding and address any issues promptly.
