Bonding can help your smile by repairing damaged teeth or addressing cosmetic issues. A fairly simple and straightforward procedure, smiledental bonding uses a realistic looking resin material to permanently mend teeth in a way that looks completely natural. At Huhn Dental in Orlando, FL, Dr. Douglas Huhn is your family dentist for dental bonding!


What is Dental Bonding?

Bonding is a dental procedure that improves the appearance of your smile through the repair and concealment of cosmetic flaws. The bonding procedure is quick, uncomplicated, and pain-free. During the treatment, a composite resin material with a putty-like consistency is applied to problem areas of the teeth. The material then permanently bonds with the teeth, ultimately becoming part of the natural tooth as it dries. The bonding material is then color-matched to the teeth so that it readily blends in, giving you a beautiful new look!


How Bonding Helps

Many different types of cosmetic concerns can be addressed with dental bonding, and during a consultation, your Orlando family dentist can tell you if bonding is the right option to help you achieve the smile you desire. Bonding can help your smile in the following ways:

  • Repairing chipped teeth
  • Sealing cracks in teeth
  • Reshaping teeth that are oddly shaped
  • Closing small gaps between teeth
  • Concealing stains and discolorations
  • Covering and protecting exposed tooth roots

During these treatments, resin material is applied to the problem area and then dried with a special light to help the material harden correctly. For example, a thin layer of resin material can be applied over a cracked area of a tooth. After the resin is completely dry and has bonded to the tooth, the crack will no longer be visible and the tooth will look flawless. No one will even be able to tell the tooth was ever cracked!
