What Is Direct Bonding?

Direct bonding uses a special composite material to fill in and reshape small dental imperfections. This high-grade filler consists of a resin base combined with silica that bonds directly to your teeth. Once it hardens with the help of a UV light, it can be sculpted into a natural-looking restoration that effectively hides minor dental imperfections. Whether you have a chipped or cracked tooth, a small gap between two teeth, or discoloration that can’t be addressed by teeth whitening treatments, direct bonding can repair your smile and give you back your confidence.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Direct Bonding?

Direct bonding works best when applied to small single dental issues in teeth with otherwise good health. If you have severe decay or gum disease, you may need to have these issues treated first before seeking direct bonding. The best way to see if you’re a candidate for this treatment is to schedule a consultation with our dental team. Your dentist can give you a brief oral exam and then offer several options based on your needs and preferences.

The Benefits of Direct Bonding

While direct bonding is a cosmetic procedure, it offers numerous benefits—even beyond just making your smile look better!

  • Fast and Efficient: Direct bonding can be applied in a single visit. Come in, sit down, and leave with a better grin!
  • Discreet and Natural Appearance: The resin used in direct bonding is matched to the color of your natural enamel so no one will be able to tell at all!
  • Easy Maintenance: Oral care for teeth with direct bonding is simple. Just brush and floss them like you would your other teeth!
  • Long-Lasting: Your new restorations will last for many years with proper care, offering a very cost-effective way to fix minor dental issues.
  • Not Just for Looks: Direct bonding can sometime fix small bite issues caused by uneven teeth or seal a cracked tooth to prevent further damage or infection.
