What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a versatile and cost-effective dental procedure that Dr. Kim offers to her patients. This treatment involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin to repair decayed, chipped, fractured, or discolored teeth. Unlike veneers and crowns, which require custom fabrication in a lab, dental bonding can oftentimes be done in a single visit to the dentist. It's a conservative way to make minor dental repairs because it requires the removal of less tooth enamel than veneers or crowns.

The Dental Bonding Treatment Process

Unlike other dental procedures, preparation for dental bonding is minimal and straightforward. There is usually no need for anesthesia unless the bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth. Arvada dentist Dr. Kim will use a shade guide to select a composite resin color that closely matches the color of your tooth.

Bonding Process

The bonding process begins with Dr. Kim roughening the surface of the tooth and applying a conditioning liquid. This helps the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired shape. An ultraviolet light or laser is then used to harden the material. After the material is hardened, Dr. Kim will further trim and shape it, and polish it to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.

Post-Procedure Care

After the procedure, it's essential to maintain good oral hygiene practices to keep your bonded teeth healthy and looking their best. Avoid habits like nail-biting, chewing on ice, or using your teeth to open packaging, as the bonding material can chip. Regular check-ups with Dr. Kim will ensure the bonding stays in good shape and lasts as long as possible.

The Benefits Of Dental Bonding

One of the most significant benefits of dental bonding is its aesthetic appeal. The material used for bonding can be matched to your natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural appearance. It's an excellent option for those who want to improve their smile without the noticeable signs of dental work.

Quick and Convenient

Dental bonding is a quick procedure that usually takes between 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. It is also less invasive than other dental procedures, with minimal discomfort and no need for anesthesia in most cases. This makes it a convenient option for many patients.


Compared to other cosmetic dental procedures, dental bonding is a cost-effective solution. It provides significant improvements to your smile without the high cost of veneers or crowns. Dental bonding is a great way to enhance your smile while keeping your budget in mind.

Preserves Tooth Structure

Another advantage of dental bonding is that it preserves more of the natural tooth structure compared to other procedures like veneers or crowns. This is because less enamel needs to be removed to prepare the tooth for bonding. This aspect of dental bonding is especially beneficial for maintaining long-term dental health.
