Dental bonding is a quick and easy way to solve all kinds of cosmetic dental concerns, including chipped or discolored teeth. Using a tooth-colored composite resin, we can give your teeth an overall more consistent appearance. We can fill spaces, change the color, or even cover roots that have become exposed due to gum recession. Dental bonding is also more cost-effective than other restorative procedures, like crowns or veneers.

Dental bonding is a painless way to essentially “patch up” your teeth. While veneers are thin porcelain shells that are attached to the front of the tooth, bonding is generally applied to a smaller area. The composite resin can be used in a variety of ways. It can be shaped to look like the missing part of a chipped tooth or used to fill the spaces in between teeth. We can paint it over a stained tooth to make it match the other teeth. Or, we can use it to repair severely decayed teeth. With proper care, dental bonding can last for up to 5 years before you’ll need to think about touch-ups or replacement.
Another great thing about bonding is that the procedure is straightforward! We’ll start with an exam, then choose a shade of resin that matches your teeth. We lightly etch the teeth that are getting the bonding treatment. This makes it easier for the resin to bond to your teeth. Then, we apply the bonding liquid and wait for it to set. Once it’s ready, we’ll apply the plastic resin and then make it match your surrounding teeth. When we’re finished, it will be hard to tell the difference between the bonded tooth and surrounding teeth! Most Sebastopol patients don’t even need anesthesia for the procedure unless we’re filling a cavity at the same time. So, if you’re looking for an easy, affordable way to have a beautiful new smile, give Team Buzza a call at 707-573-0600 or schedule your appointment online.
