Are the gaps in your teeth a source of embarrassment? Dental professionals confess that this is amongst the most common cosmetic issues patients complain about. Fortunately, however, aesthetically-unpleasing issues like gapped teeth can be remediated using a non-invasive, fast, and easy method called dental bonding.

Dental Bonding Overview

Bonding is a cosmetic procedure designed to correct minor dental flaws impacting teeth such as small cracks, chips, and gaps. Bonding is applied directly to a tooth’s surface, is not usually painful, can be completed in a single visit to the dentist’s office, and will not require that long a recovery period.

Additionally, the procedure is ideal for people fearful of visiting their dental care providers. Bonding is not performed using intimidating or noisy tools.

The Procedure

Bonding is considered one of the more simple dental undertakings. That said, the process is performed over several steps.


The first stage of the process involves a thorough evaluation. The presiding dental care provider will examine the patient’s mouth and determine the extent of a tooth’s damage.


The initial assessment is followed by a cleansing. The damaged region will be disinfected, which prevents possible complications and provides a smoother surface for the bonding agent.


Once the tooth in debate has been thoroughly cleaned, the attending dental professional applies the bonding agent to fill gaps or disguise other imperfections.

After the bonding substance is implemented, a brief duration is necessary to enable said agent to gradually form. Once forming commences, the attending dentist will put the finishing touches using specific tools.

The shaping process enables the agent to blend in naturally and offer a genuine appearance.


Once the bond and tooth have conjoined, hardening can commence. Hardening is executed to ensure the bonding material stays in place and remains firmly connected to the tooth. Dental professionals complete the hardening procedure using a specially-designed light tool.

Bonding Gapped Teeth

Oral care practitioners often employ bonding to fill small gaps between teeth. When the process is completed, the visually-disturbing spaces between dental components are enclosed and the recipient will no longer feel embarrassed when engaging in routine activities like speaking and smiling.

Benefits Of Bonding

The ease, quickness, and simplicity associated with bonding is preferred over more invasive procedures such as the insertion of braces or aligning hardware.

The preceding efforts necessitate more invasiveness, are far more time-consuming, could be somewhat painful, and mandate more frequent trips to the dentist’s office and significant maintenance to prevent damage and ensure structural stability.
