What is Direct Bonding?

Dental bonding is one of the most cost-effective cosmetic procedures and is commonly used to repair minor dental damage. When you visit our state-of-the-art facilities, a member of our staff will have you fill out any necessary paperwork before taking your back to one of our treatment rooms. After a quick examination of the damage, our cosmetic dentist in Phoenix will match the color of a composite resin to your teeth. The putty is made from finely ground particles of glass and plastic and is sculpted to repair the shape and structure of your teeth. Once it has been placed, we’ll use a special light to bond the resin to your natural tooth. Lastly, we’ll make final adjustments, shaping and trimming the hardened resin to look virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your mouth.  

Problems That Direct Bonding Can Repair

After the procedure, we’ll give you some aftercare instructions so you can get the most out of your restored smile. The good news is that bonded teeth don’t require any special attention. By brushing twice each day for two minutes and flossing daily, you can extend the lifespan of the dental bonding.

This way, we can make any repairs or adjustments as necessary to prevent you from needing to schedule an unexpected visit.
