What is Direct
Dental Bonding?

Imagine a wall that has years of stains and colorful crayon plastered all over it. Now, imagine painting it and stepping back to see what looks to be a brand-new wall. Direct dental bonding works much in the same way. Whether it is stains, discolorations, chipped enamel, or minor gaps between your teeth, this method of treatment can hide the impurities and transform your smile.

Your cosmetic dentist in Marysville will use a tooth-colored composite resin that is matched to your natural tooth color using a shade guide. Shaping and sculpting the resin to blend with your tooth, no one will ever be able to tell the resin is even there!

Who is a Good Candidate for Direct Dental Bonding?

If you are looking to direct dental bonding as a way to fill the gaps in your teeth, there are a few things you should realize. First, our team of dental professionals will examine and determine if the size of your gap or damage qualifies you for this cosmetic treatment. If the damage proves too large, it may be necessary for you to pursue a different cosmetic solution.

No matter if you are seeking bonding treatment for gaps, discoloration, staining, or chipped enamel, it is important that you have good oral hygiene and overall health. That means any tooth decay or gum disease should be addressed prior to receiving any type of cosmetic dentistry service.

Why Dental Bonding?

If underlying problems such as gum disease or tooth decay exist, you will have a beautiful, new smile that is going to face serious problems over time. Decay and disease that are left untreated can result in the need for a root canal, loosening teeth, or even a tooth extraction. Thus, if you receive direct dental bonding on any tooth that is plagued with a serious dental problem, you will most likely be paying more money in the long run.

For patients considering direct dental bonding, it is important to remember:

  • Large gaps will most likely need orthodontic treatment
  • Smoking and drinking dark-colored beverages can stain the composite resin over time
  • The resin used is not as strong as your natural teeth, so you should avoid chewing on ice or any hard objects

Treatment Process

First, our dentists at Allen Creek Family Dentistry will begin by matching the color of the composite resin using a shade guide. This will help in identifying the right color, so your smile will be natural and blended. Next, we will need to roughen the surface of the tooth before placing a special liquid over it to allow the bonding agent to effectively adhere.

The next step will require your cosmetic dentist to shape and sculpt the resin directly onto the enamel of the tooth. With a careful hand, they will cover any and all imperfections. A curing light will be used to harden the resin to the tooth.

Finally, we will make any necessary adjustments before polishing and sealing the tooth.
