Composite Resin Bonding for a Beautiful Smile

Composite resin bonding is a dental procedure that repairs chips and cracks and can be used for tooth colored fillings.


The team from the Forest Dental Center in Lynchburg are preferred providers of composite resin bonding.

What is Composite Resin Bonding?

Composite resin bonding is both a restorative and cosmetic dental procedure. Bonding can be used to fill teeth and to make teeth look better. It will help repair broken, cracked, chipped and stained teeth. Bonding is also used to fill small spaces between your teeth.

Will Composite Resin Bonding Damage My Teeth?

Unlike porcelain veneers, which require some removal of your tooth to make way for the veneer, bonding requires no removal of your tooth structure and is not a permanent procedure. Although the tooth will need to be roughened up for a lasting bond, it doesn’t damage your tooth. Dental bonding is safe and non-invasive.

Can I Have a New Smile with Composite Resin Bonding?

You can have a beautiful smile with resin bonding, and best of all, it only takes one dental appointment depending on how many teeth you are having bonded. Porcelain veneers and dental crowns take a minimum of two dental appointments. During that time, you may have to wear temporary veneers or a temporary crown as well.

What is the Bonding Process?

While most patients are suitable for composite resin bonding, it will take an appointment with your Lynchburg dentist to determine if you are one of those patients.

If you are deemed an appropriate candidate for resin bonding, your tooth is roughed up before a conditioning gel is applied. This process helps the resin adhere to your tooth or teeth. Once applied, the resin is hardened with a laser or light. After the resin has cured, the tooth or teeth will be polished to perfection.

Although bonding can last up to ten years, you will need to practice good oral hygiene habits. This will help avoid touch-ups or replacement.
