Dental Bonding, Eagan Minnesota, 651-687-0789

Dental Bonding is a process in which a tooth-colored quartz filled resin is bonded to a tooth and cured or hardened with a high intensity LED light. Bonding is a good option to make small cosmetic improvements to your teeth. Bonding can be done within one office visit since nothing has to be custom made by a dental laboratory. Additionally, the procedure allows the dentist to be conservative in the size of the cavity preparation. 

 

How it’s done:

The bonding procedure typically requires between 30 to 60 minutes to complete for each tooth. First, the dentist determines exactly what color shade your teeth are to select a resin that will blend naturally. Once this is done, the dentist will prepare the tooth so that the bonding material will adhere strongly to the tooth. This involves roughening the surface of the affected tooth and applying a liquid conditioner. Once this is complete, the dentist will apply the resin to the tooth, and cure it in place using a high intensity LED light. Finally, the dentist will apply the finishing touches by shaping and polishing the resin for a great appearance, fit and feel.
