This option is more convenient and less expensive than veneers and crowns, making it ideal for minor cosmetic touchups. As it does not involve anything to be made in a dental lab, you may go home the same day with better-looking teeth. In addition, dental bonding involves removing less of the tooth enamel compared to veneers and crowns.

How Dr. Bram Does It

The bonding procedure usually requires 30 to 60 minutes. First, Dr. Bram will determine your teeth’s exact shade to choose a resin that will blend naturally. He will also select a resin with the same translucency and texture as your natural teeth. smiling-woman-square After this, he will prepare the tooth by slightly roughening its surface and applying liquid conditioner. This is done so that the bonding material can adhere easily to the tooth. Once your tooth is ready, Dr. Bram will apply the resin to it. He will then cure it using ultraviolet light.
