Dental Bonding

Santa Cruz Dentist Dental Bonding

Dental bonding, also known as tooth bonding, is considered a direct technique toward improving your smile. Tooth bonding is designed to restore the natural appearance of teeth, such as correcting gaps, cover spots, chips, and discolorations. If your condition applies, it may also help to repair fractures and re-shape teeth. This procedure typically only takes about one visit with Santa Cruz Dentist Dr. Heit, in which he will roughen the area that needs to be repaired, etch the tooth with gel, and apply a treatment of bonding primers and tooth-colored composite resin.

To know if you qualify as a candidate for dental bonding, make an appointment with either Santa Cruz Dentist Dr. Alan Heit or Dr. Jessica Heit.

What is dental bonding?

Bonding is a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misarranged. Dr. Heit will lightly etch the surface of the tooth and apply a bonding liquid. A plastic resin is then applied and sculpted into the desired shape. Bonding can often be completed in a single visit and can significantly change the appearance of your smile. However, plastic resin is not as strong as tooth enamel and is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Veneers are a more long lasting solution for chips and gaps.
