Discolored Teeth? Cracks in Your Smile? Find Out How Dental Bonding Can Help You

In Southern California, we’re surrounded by people with perfect, Hollywood smiles. While we would all love to have naturally straight, well-shaped teeth, the reality is very few of us have that naturally gorgeous grin. Luckily, there is an easy procedure to correct gapped, chipped, or uneven teeth, and get you that brilliant smile: dental bonding. 

When it comes to improving your smile, dental bonding can be used in a variety of ways. Dental bonding is a painless, quick and affordable treatment that requires minimal prep. The bonding, which is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture that bonds directly to the surface of your tooth, can correct a number of cosmetic flaws. Here at Couture Smiles Dental Group in Woodland Hills, California, our expert dental team uses a composite resin material that matches the color of your teeth to perform the bonding. Read on to learn why Dr. Nicole Sazgar and Dr. Armen Terteryan are so fond of this procedure and how you can get started. 

What is tooth bonding?

Dental bonding is a super simple procedure and only requires one visit to the dentist, unlike some other tooth-replacement procedures (like dental implants). Here’s what you can expect during your tooth bonding appointment:

  1. Your dentist starts by thoroughly cleaning your teeth
  2. Your dentist will choose a composite resin that resembles the color of your natural teeth.
  3. Your dentist then prepares your teeth, grinding them down so that the resin will stick better.
  4. Your dentist applies an adhesive liquid to the surface of your teeth.
  5. Finally, your dentist applies the resin and molds it to each tooth, then hardens it with a special curing light. The tooth is finally polished to reveal a seamless and attractive tooth.

What concerns can bonding address?

Bonding has the unique ability to address dental concerns that are purely cosmetic as well as those that threaten your oral health. Here are some common reasons why dental bonding may be suggested:
