What is dental bonding?

We use dental bonding in Ventura to fix chips, reduce gaps between your teeth, or alter the color and shape of a tooth. The composite resin for the procedure is the same material we use to fill cavities.


Preparation for Dental Bonding


We take dental x-rays and conduct a visual and photographic examination to confirm that you’re an excellent candidate for Ventura dental bonding. If you have any dental issues, like gum disease or tooth decay, we’ll likely want to first address these problems. Depending on the extent of the bonding we are doing, sometimes we schedule a smile design visit so you can see what the bonding would look like in your smile before the treatment is done. Patients who want a brighter smile are also encouraged to whiten their teeth before bonding treatments.


What happens during Dental Bonding


We follow a specific set of procedures to ensure natural-looking results. First, we select  resin colors that are the same colors as your teeth. Then, we prepare your tooth by roughening the surface; this step helps the composite material adhere to your tooth. We also apply a liquid that helps the resin stick. After we apply and shape the resin, we use a light to cure the material so that it properly bonds to your tooth. We polish and shape the restored tooth to ensure it looks natural.


What happens after your appointment


It’s normal to experience temporary sensitivity or gum tenderness after your appointment; this usually subsides within a few days, and warm salt water rinses, sensitive toothpaste, and over-the-counter pain medicines (like ibuprofen or acetaminophen) can be helpful to ease your discomfort You can brush and floss your bonded teeth like normal. You can brush and floss your bonded teeth like normal.

Benefits of dental bonding

Dental bonding in Ventura is a long-term, pain-free alternative for repairing your damaged teeth. Your bonding may last up to 10 years before it needs to be touched up or replaced. Most appointments restore your smile in a single day, and many patients don’t even need local anesthesia for the procedure.

How dental bonding enhances your smile

There are multiple benefits associated with Ventura dental bonding that make it a popular treatment:


The procedure is versatile


One of the great things about dental bonding is that we can customize the placement and shaping of the composite material to flatter your smile. Whether you have gaps, cracks, tooth discoloration, or even a combination of cosmetic issues, dental bonding can restore your teeth and smile.


Dental Bonding doesn’t require intensive enamel removal


Some procedures require you to significantly alter your teeth by removing the enamel. Dental bonding is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t require significant enamel removal. We can even use dental bonding to treat any enamel loss that you’re experiencing. The layer of composite resin adds an additional layer of protection to your teeth.


It’s a cost-effective treatment


Ventura dental bonding is one of the most affordable esthetic options for restoring your teeth, making it an accessible treatment for patients searching for a budget-friendly way to improve their teeth.
