Also known as cosmetic bonding or direct bonding, dental bonding is designed to dramatically improve the size, shape, and color of imperfect teeth in a more conservative manner than many other cosmetic dentistry treatments.

The composite resin is personalized to match the color of your enamel and sculpted onto your tooth to create seamless results.

As a skilled cosmetic dentist in Gainesville, Dr. Her can usually finish the bonding procedure in about 30 to 60 minutes. If you wish to improve multiple teeth, however, it may take longer. Dr. Her may even recommend several appointments.
To begin the dental bonding process, Dr. Her will clean your affected tooth and administer a weak acid, which opens the pores in your enamel and allows the bonding material to form a secure attachment. Next, he’ll apply the tooth-colored composite resin to your tooth, molding it as he goes to ensure the ideal results are achieved. After quickly hardening the resin with an ultraviolet light, Dr. Her will give your tooth one final polish and you’ll be ready to walk out of our office with your new and improved smile!
