Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is one of the simplest and most affordable cosmetic procedures Dr. Warren Gase offers at his Cincinnati, OH, dental office. Bonding is the application of tooth-colored composite resin to conceal chips, wear, cracks, and other minor imperfections. In a single appointment, Dr. Gase can use this treatment to give your smile the symmetry and beauty you desire.

The Top Benefits of Dental Bonding

Patients who are seeking a minimally invasive treatment to address minor cosmetic blemishes can benefit greatly from dental bonding. Dental bonding can:

  • Save you time and money: Many cosmetic dentistry procedures require multiple visits. Dental bonding can be completed in well under an hour and for less than other treatments like veneers.
  • Preserve dental tissue: Dental crowns and porcelain veneers require removing a layer of enamel in order to fit properly. Dental bonding simply adheres to your tooth’s natural structure. 
  • Brighten smiles: If you have dental stains that will not respond to teeth whitening, bonding can give your smile the bright, healthy color you desire.

What to Expect on the Day of Treatment

When you undergo dental bonding at our Cincinnati dental practice, Dr. Gase will begin by shade-matching the bonding material to your natural teeth. The surface of your tooth will then need to be prepped. An etching chemical will be used to roughen the surface of the tooth, which will help to create a strong bond with the resin. 

The tooth-colored resin will then be applied to the tooth and artfully molded to the desired shape. Then, Dr. Gase will use a special light to harden the bonding material. Finally, Dr. Gase will polish the bonding material to ensure that it looks natural and blends with the surrounding dental tissue.

In many cases, patients choose to receive bonding as a way to decide if they would like to eventually receive veneers.

Dental Bonding vs. Porcelain Veneers

Dental bonding and porcelain veneers can both address similar cosmetic blemishes (gaps, minor chips, discoloration), but the procedures are significantly different. Dental bonding can be completed in one visit while porcelain veneers require two visits. Porcelain veneers require a small layer of enamel to be removed, while dental bonding is non-invasive and completely reversible. Veneers last longer than bonding, but the procedure is significantly more expensive.

However, it is also important to consider that veneers are capable of providing more natural-looking results. Depending on the imperfection you wish to address, veneers may simply be the better choice for achieving the results you want. If you are considering either of these cosmetic procedures, Dr. Gase will help you decide which is best for you. In many cases, patients choose to receive bonding as a way to decide if they would like to eventually receive veneers.
