Dental Bonding


 woman having a dental bonding procedure completed with a uv light in the dentist chair Dental bonding is a procedure that allows you to change the shape, color, and alignment of your teeth so that they look more beautiful and healthier. The procedure is available in our Robert H. Peterson DDS dental clinic and is performed quickly and effectively. You do not need several visits to the dentist to have your bonding done perfectly. One dental visit is enough. Dental bonding is made out of composite material, and it will match your existing teeth and last you for years to come. Contact our dental office to get started today if you are curious about how teeth bonding can transform your smile.

Why Choose Dental Bonding?


Sometimes patients are uncertain whether they should choose dental bonding or another dental procedure to fix their teeth. Our dentist, Robert H. Peterson, DDS, can guide you on whether dental bonding is the suitable solution or if other methods can be used. Dental bonding is best for treating stained, chipped, and broken teeth. We will use a colored-composite resin and apply it to your damaged teeth. We will then dry your tooth and polish the surface to make it smooth. The bonding procedure usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes. It's a painless, easy, and straightforward procedure.

Dental bonding can be a perfect solution for patients who may not want to opt for other dental treatments like veneers or crowns. Dental bonding can still work effectively in preventing cavities, the spread of bacteria, and other dental problems. This is because the bonding material completely covers the surface of your tooth, which prevents bacteria from destroying your enamel.

Who Should Have Dental Bonding?


It is worth noting that tooth bonding is not meant for everyone because it cannot repair extensive tooth damage. Dental bonding is the best for repairing minor tooth damages. If your teeth are weak and have formed serious cavities, this may not be the best dental treatment for your teeth. Dental bonding can also be applied if you are already comfortable with the color of your teeth. If you want to whiten your teeth, you will need to have that done before proceeding with the bonding. This is because composite material will not whiten once placed.

How Should I Take Care of My Teeth After A Bonding Procedure?


The most obvious way to take care of your teeth is to brush and floss daily. However, you have to be extra careful with dental bonding because the material can quickly stain if neglected. This means that you should avoid consuming darkly colored beverages, smoking, and consuming too much alcohol. This will ensure that your bonding lasts for a long time. It will also keep your mouth free from acidic bacteria that can damage your teeth and gums. Always consult with our dentist on what you can do to improve your dental health.
