What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that applies tooth-colored composite resin material to the surface of teeth to improve their appearance. The composite resin bonds to the tooth enamel, creating a smooth, seamless look.

Cosmetic dental bonding can fix chips, cracks, discoloration, misshapen teeth, and small gaps between teeth. It often takes just one visit to complete dental bonding treatment.

The Benefits of Dental Bonding

There are many benefits associated with cosmetic dental bonding, including:

  • Little to No Tooth Preparation: Unlike dental veneers, teeth bonding usually doesn’t require removing enamel from your natural teeth.
  • Stain Coverage: Teeth bonding masks deep and surface stains.
  • Quick and Easy: Dental bonding takes one visit and requires no lab work.
  • Affordable: The average cost of dental bonding is less than other, more invasive cosmetic dental treatments.
  • Low Maintenance: Dental bonding doesn’t require any special care. Just practice good oral hygiene.
  • Highly Customizable: Dental bonding material is molded for a personalized fit and shaded to match your natural teeth.
  • Durability: With proper care, dental bonding can last five to seven years or longer before repairs are needed.

When is Dental Bonding a Good Option?

Ideal candidates for teeth bonding include people who want to:

  • Fix small chips or cracks in teeth

  • Close small gaps between teeth
  • Create a more uniform smile

The Dental Bonding Procedure at Optimum Dentistry

Dr. Santana takes a conservative, customized approach to dental bonding for natural-looking, long-lasting results. Here is an overview of the dental bonding procedure with Dr. Santana:


The first step is meeting with Dr. Santana for a dental exam. He’ll evaluate your smile’s aesthetics and listen to your goals. Together, you’ll decide if teeth bonding is the right treatment option.


Little to no tooth reduction is required for teeth bonding. Dr. Santana may use a conditioning liquid to roughen the surface to help the tooth bonding material adhere.

Color Matching

Composite resin comes in various natural tooth shades. The cosmetic dental bonding material is carefully selected and customized to match the color of your surrounding teeth seamlessly.

Bonding Application

Dr. Santana skillfully sculpts the teeth-bonding material into the precise shape and symmetry needed to improve your smile. He meticulously applies the composite resin to the surface of the prepared tooth.

Curing the Composite Resin

A special curing light hardens the tooth-bonding material onto the bonded tooth. Additional layers of composite resin may be applied to build the shape and thickness required.

Finishing and Polishing

Once cured, Dr. Santana smooths and polishes the teeth-bonding material to a natural sheen. He’ll make sure the composite resin creates a comfortable, functional bite.

Review Your Smile

In the end, you’ll get to see your beautiful new smile! Dr. Santana will also provide care instructions to maintain the results. With his meticulous technique, you can expect a customized bonding result that looks and feels natural.

Caring For Dental Bonding

Your cosmetic dental bonding treatment can last many years with good oral health care and maintenance. Here are Dr. Santana’s recommendations for keeping your cosmetic teeth bonding feeling healthy:

  • Brush and Floss Regularly: Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day and flossing at least once daily. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and be gentle around the bonded teeth. Flossing helps remove plaque and food debris that can lead to decay under the tooth-bonding material.
  • Avoid Hard or Sticky Foods: For at least 24 to 48 hours after your bonding procedure, avoid very hard, crunchy, chewy, or sticky foods. Nuts, ice, caramel, and hard candy can crack or damage new dental bonding.
  • Don’t Bite Your Nails: Breaking the habit of nail-biting protects your bonding. Also, avoid opening things with your bonded teeth.
  • Use Mouthguards for Sports: Wear a mouthguard when playing sports to prevent trauma or fracturing that could damage dental bonding. Mouthguards help absorb and dissipate shock from impacts.
  • Avoid Whitening Too Soon: Wait two to three weeks after getting bonding before using tooth whitening products. Whitening too soon could lead to differences in shade between your natural teeth and the bonded tooth.
  • Attend Regular Dental Visits: See Dr. David Santana as recommended, generally every six months. He’ll examine your teeth bonding and provide professional cleanings to keep your smile looking its best.
  • Contact Us With Concerns: If you notice your dental bonding is damaged, cracked, feels rough, or seems stained, call our Coral Springs dental office promptly. Minor repairs can often be done to maintain your tooth bonding.

Frequently Asked Questions

The composite resin material used for tooth bonding can become stained over time from foods/drinks like coffee, tea, wine, soda, berries, and tomato sauce. Minimize staining by avoiding these items right after teeth bonding treatment.

Little to no tooth reduction is required for tooth bonding, so there’s minimal pain. Bonded teeth may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures after treatment. Over-the-counter pain medication can help relieve discomfort.

Dental bonding is typically considered a cosmetic procedure, so most insurance plans don’t provide coverage. However, if the procedure repairs a fractured or injured tooth, your plan may cover restorations. Contact your insurance provider beforehand to confirm your coverage.

Avoid chewing excessively hard or sticky foods for 24 hours after teeth bonding. Slowly introduce normal foods, starting with soft foods. Avoid staining foods for at least 48 hours. After that, you can eat with your bonded teeth normally.
