What Happens During a Dental Bonding Appointment

The process of dental bonding is straightforward and typically painless. That is why it is one of the most popular options for many patients. Here's what you can expect during the procedure:

  • Preparation: To begin, your dentist will thoroughly clean the surface of your teeth to remove any plaque or debris. Next, they’ll select a shade of composite resin material that closely matches the color of your natural teeth for seamless blending.
  • Bonding: Once the teeth are prepared, your dentist will apply a conditioning solution to the tooth surface. This will help the bonding material adhere effectively. They will then carefully apply the composite resin to the tooth and sculpt it into your desired shape. This process will correct imperfections or enhance aesthetics.
  • Curing: After the composite resin application, your dentist will use a special curing light to harden the material to your tooth. This process takes only a few seconds per tooth and is completely painless.
  • Finishing touches: Once the bonding material is cured, your dentist will make the final adjustments and ensure proper tooth shape. They may also polish the bonded teeth to achieve a smooth and natural-looking finish.
