Tooth Bonding An Overview
Dental bonding is a cosmetic solution for cosmetic imperfections in the smile. Bonding is a semi permanent cosmetic restoration that can be used to enhance the appearance of the smile. Bonding is an ideal treatment for younger patients not ready to commit to dental veneers.
Dental bonding is made from a malleable composite material. The material can be color matched to the natural teeth. The malleable material is molded by hand on the surface of the tooth for a quick and effective solution to cosmetic dental concerns.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect
The tooth bonding procedure is minimally invasive and causes little to no discomfort. Bonding is typically completed in one visit to our Santa Monica, CA dentist office.
The tooth will be gently prepared by removing a minimal amount of enamel for a more secure bond. The bonding agent will be color matched to blend naturally with your teeth.
Dr. Dall’Olmo will then mold the bonding material on the tooth surface. The bonding will be sculpted and smoothed to a natural sheen.
Dental bonding can last upwards of 10 years with proper oral hygiene. Bonding can be reversed and replaced with a dental veneer at a later time.
