With dental bonding, a tooth-colored resin is bonded to the tooth to create a flawless look that is virtually indistinguishable from natural enamel. In addition to hiding imperfections, dental bonding can be used to lengthen the teeth, alter their shape, or close gaps between teeth. Finally, it can be used as an alternative to silver fillings, creating a more natural look. One of the main benefits of dental bonding is that it can be completed in just one office visit. Patients who wish to receive dental bonding can visit Dr. Nick’s Columbia practice, where he first determines whether dental bonding is right for them. If so, Dr. Nick preps the tooth by “roughening” its surface so that the resin will bond easily. He then applies the resin and uses a special light to harden the material and bond it to the natural tooth. Once this is complete, Dr. Nick shapes the tooth to ensure that it blends naturally with the surrounding natural teeth. This entire process takes less than one hour, leaving patients with a restored, beautiful smile in just one appointment.
