Dental bonding is a process of repairing chipped, cracked, broken teeth. Bonding can bring volume to a missing piece, or change the shape of the tooth with adding volume to it. This procedure can be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as reshaping.Learn More

The outcomes of bonding can be analyzed in three main categories: aesthetical, health-related, and psychological.
With the cracks, chips and irregularities or discolorations gone, you will have a more aesthetic smile.
The chips on teeth can lead to tooth decay because they are ideal locations for bacterial growth and harder for toothbrushes to reach, with bonding smoother surface will prevent bacterial growth and ease cleaning with toothbrush.
After bonding treatment, you’ll get rid of your insecurities and will be much more confident and happy with your smile.
In the first week after the dental bonding procedure, it is important to avoid eating or drinking anything that could stain the bonding material. This includes foods and beverages that are very dark in color, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and berries. It is also important to avoid biting or chewing on hard or sticky foods, as this could damage the bonding material or cause it to come loose.
After the first week, it is generally safe to eat and drink whatever you like, as long as you brush and floss your teeth regularly to keep the bonding material clean and free of plaque. It is also important to avoid biting or chewing on hard or sticky foods, as this could still damage the bonding material.
After meeting with your dentist at their office during your consultation you express your expectations and the dentist checks the condition of your teeth. They will inform you about their professional opinion while taking your expectations and the condition of your teeth into consideration. Then, photos of your teeth will be taken for a 3D simulation. The size, model and color can be decided by you, and you can even choose the color from the tooth color chart. After deciding, on the first operation day teeth will be scraped and if there is a need for an extraction it will also take place on the first day. Temporary veneers will be put on and your dentist will prescribe you with painkillers and antibiotics. You will stay at the hotel for about 4-5 days. During your stay you will be visited by a wellbeing specialist, and if you’re having any problems your dentist will be contacted. After these 4-5 days, your permanent veneer will be applied and it will be all done.
If you are planning to undergo dental bonding, there are a few things you can do to prepare for the procedure and ensure the best possible results. Some important steps to take before the bonding include:

However, the material used can chip so avoiding hard foods and biting your nails or opening packages with your teeth is advised. If there are any sharp edges to the bonded tooth, schedule an appointment with your dentist.
