Dental Bonding

Dental bonding makes a "real" difference.

Dental bonding is a quick, affordable, and painless way to repair damaged or flawed teeth. By using a tooth-colored resin material that looks and feels like real tooth enamel, Dr. Khoury will restore your teeth back to their natural beauty and health.

Dental bonding is the perfect option for several dental conditions:

    Repair decayed, chipped, or cracked teeth    
    Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
    Close gaps between teeth
    Make teeth look longer
    Alter the shape of teeth
    A cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
    Protection of the tooth's root (when gums recede)

Advantages
Dental bonding is the easiest and most affordable of cosmetic dental procedures. Compared with veneers and crowns, another advantage is that the least amount of tooth enamel is removed.

Preparation
Dental bonding is a relatively simple dental procedure and requires little advance preparation or anesthesia (unless filling a decayed tooth). Dr. Khoury will create a composite resin color using a shade guide that will closely match the color of your tooth.

Procedure
The tooth's surface will be roughened and a conditioning liquid applied, helping prepare the tooth for the bonding material. The tooth-colored resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape. Dr. Khoury will then use an ultraviolet light to cure the material. After the resin is hardened, he will further trim, shape and polish it to match the rest of the tooth surface. The procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour per tooth.
