Dental bonding is a procedure provided by your cosmetic dentist in Albuquerque. It involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to a damaged tooth. The resin bonds with the enamel of the tooth, which can add strength and durability to the tooth.
Dental bonding consists of placing a plastic resin on the teeth that are meant to improve the aesthetics of your smile. The resin is easily molded to the shape of the teeth and can often be done in one visit to the dentist’s office. This can often be a quick and easy smile makeover solution, especially when you have issues with teeth that are chipped, cracked, or irregularly shaped. Dental bonding is also often used to fill a space between two teeth.

What happens during dental bonding?
During dental bonding, a tooth-colored composite resin is applied directly to the tooth. We carefully match the resin to the color of your natural teeth so that it blends in beautifully. We then carefully apply the resin to the surface of the tooth and sculpt the resin to the ideal shape. Dental bonding can usually be completed in a single appointment, and the procedure can be completed quickly.
How long do the results last?
Dental bonding can last for several years. However, you won’t have to rely on your bonded teeth alone—drastic dental problems will require dental bonding as well. For example, if you notice the bonding is peeling off, you may need a dental filling. If your bonded teeth chip, you can repair them but may need additional dental bonding.
