About Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding San DiegoDirect freehand dental bonding involves the application of a composite resin material to the teeth; this material is prepared so that it precisely matches the color of surrounding natural teeth. If desired, the procedure can be combined with teeth whitening for even more dramatic results. After the teeth whitening session, the bonding material can be crafted to match the brighter, more vibrant color of the natural teeth.

Once the bonding material has been applied to the teeth, it is meticulously shaped so that it blends seamlessly with the rest of the patient's smile. It is then exposed to a curing light, which causes it to harden. After a final polish, the patient is able to emerge from treatment with a thoroughly revitalized and rejuvenated smile.

Advantages of this type of cosmetic care include minimal or no tooth preparation, instant results, total control of shade and shape, and a reduction in cost because no lab fees are generated. Among the limitations is a lack of long-term durability; restorations completed with direct freehand dental bonding at our La Jolla office last only about half as long as porcelain veneers and other restorations. Nonetheless, direct freehand bonding is an excellent option for patients who are younger, as well as those who are not quite yet ready to invest in the cost of porcelain veneers.

Our leader in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. John Weston, an accredited fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, is widely recognized for his artistic and technical skill with respect to direct freehand dental bonding and has earned a reputation for the consistently beautiful transformations he has achieved with this procedure.
