Teeth Bonding An Overview
What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied and hardened with a special light, which bonds the material to the tooth to restore or improve a person’s smile.
Benefits Of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding provides patients with cosmetic and dental health benefits. Bonding can repair a broken or chipped tooth or close gaps between teeth without the need for lengthy orthodontic treatments. Typically, Dr. Welinksky can use dental bonding to improve the appearance of your smile in just one visit to the dentist office.

Does Dental Bonding Require Special After Care?
Dental Bonding is quick and convenient, allowing you to get back to your normal routine quickly. After your bonding procedure is complete, care for your smile as you normally would, including tooth brushing, flossing and regular dental care.
Is Dental Bonding A Permanent Solution?
Dental bonding is not a permanent solution, however, can be a long-lasting solution if taken care of properly. Dental bonding can last five years or more before typically needing to be replaced or to be refinished. Some patients can maintain bonded teeth for up to 10 years with good oral habits and dental care.
