BondingLearn how dental bonding can painlessly and attractively make over your smile.

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure in which Dr. Marcia Martinez, your Orlando, Florida dentist, applies a tooth-colored resin material to a tooth to improve its appearance. Learn why and how bonding is used at her Orlando dental office today!

When is bonding recommended?

Bonding resin is often used as an alternative to filling cavities with metal materials, especially on teeth which are immediately visible while smiling or talking. It can also be used to fill in cracks, chips or spaces between the teeth or reshape a tooth that is naturally irregular. Bonding is typically recommended for people who have small imperfections; larger spaces or severely damaged teeth may be better suited for different cosmetic treatments. It also works best for teeth that are not integral to chewing.

How does bonding work?

Typically, bonding is a non-invasive procedure, meaning Dr. Marcia Martinez will not need to use anesthetic in order to apply the resin, although the surface may need to be lightly buffed with a motorized tool to ensure proper adhesion. The color of the resin will be selected based on the prevailing color of your teeth. The resin starts out as a putty-like material to allow your Orlando dentist to shape it as necessary. It will then be exposed to a safe ultraviolet light or laser to harden it and complete the bonding process. The whole procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes at Dr. Marcia Martinez's Orlando dental office.

Bonding is an excellent and inexpensive way to enhance your smile and fix little problems that detract from your overall appearance. If you think you could benefit from the effects of bonding, contact the dental team at Dr. Marcia Martinez's office in Orlando to set up a consultation today.
