Dental Bonding in Oklahoma City
What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding, also called composite bonding, is a less-invasive alternative to porcelain veneers. Both offer a simple way to repair cracks, chips, discoloration, or other minor cosmetic dental issues but, while veneers use thin porcelain shells affixed to the front of teeth to correct issues, composite bonding works by applying a layer of tooth-colored dental resin to the front of teeth. After applying and letting the resin set, your dentist will then trim the resin to match the natural shape of your teeth, smooth it to a natural feel, and polish it for a truly beautiful smile.
At Sorgen Dentistry, we’re proud to provide patients of all ages with high-quality, convenient dental care. As an experienced dentist, Dr. Bryan Sorgen offers a wide range of general, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatments, including dental bonding in Oklahoma City. We strive to make our cosmetic dentistry as convenient and comfortable as possible for our patients. If you’ve been wanting a brighter, more beautiful smile but don’t want to commit to extensive treatment, dental bonding can offer a simple, effective, and convenient solution.
How Does Composite Bonding Work?
The bonding process is simple, and we can often complete the entire procedure in one visit.
The dental bonding process is as follows:
- First, Dr. Sorgen will lightly etch the surface of the tooth and apply a bonding liquid “primer” to help the resin bond with the natural tooth structure.
- Then, he will apply layers of dental resin to each tooth as needed, carefully sculpting the resin to perfectly match the look and shape of your natural teeth.
- After allowing the resin to set, Dr. Sorgen will then trim, smooth, and polish the resin to complete your new smile.
Things to Know about Dental Bonding
For many patients, dental bonding offers a simple, convenient solution for achieving a new smile without extensive dental work.
Here are a few things to keep in mind if you’re considering composite dental bonding in Oklahoma City with Dr. Sorgen:
- We can often complete the entire procedure in a single office visit
- Bonding resin isn’t as strong as tooth enamel, making it vulnerable to chipping, staining, or breaking
- Composite bonding usually lasts three to five years before needing repairs
