The Steps of a Dental Bonding Treatment

If you want to improve the appearance and health of your smile with an easy and successful dental treatment, then dental bonding is the right choice for you!

Dental bonding in Virginia Beach, Virginia, is one of the easiest and least expensive dental treatments that can give you the smile results you are looking for. In fact, the treatment process only requires one dental appointment and it does not call for any anesthesia, unless it’s used to fill a decayed tooth.

When you come into Total Care Dentistry and meet with one of our dentists about dental bonding, you can expect the following steps:

Step 1 – Preparation
Little preparation is needed for dental bonding. All your dentist needs to do is choose a shade of bonding material that matches perfectly with the color of your natural teeth.

Step 2 – The bonding process
Once the perfect bonding material is chosen, the surface of the tooth will be roughened and a conditioning liquid will be applied. This will help the bonding material adhere to the tooth. Your dentist will then place the tooth-colored putty on the tooth and will mold and smooth it into the desired shape. Then, she will use a special ultraviolet light or laser to harden the material. Once hardened, she will further trim and shape it to give it the perfect appearance.

Step 3 – Time to completion
The entire bonding process should only take 30 to 60 minutes per tooth.

As you can see, this treatment is easy and successful. So, if you have any questions or if you would like to know more about dental bonding, please call our office at 757-309-4450 and talk to a member of our dental team. We are here to help you in any way we can!
