Dental bonding is a procedure we perform that involves using a composite filling material to correct cosmetic dental flaws. Composite fillings in Van Nuys are made using resin and silica fillers that closely mimic the appearance of your natural dental enamel.
How Does Dental Bonding Work?
Bonding is a very effective way to make cosmetic repairs because it is a strong and durable material that blends perfectly with your teeth. The significant advantage is that composites bond to the surface of the remaining tooth, helping to prevent breakage.
Dental bonding can resolve a number of problems with great success:
- Repair cracks and chips in your teeth
- Create a uniform appearance for unevenly shaped teeth
- Fill in gaps between teeth
- Correct the appearance of slightly misaligned teeth
Dr. Bacquet mixes the material to perfectly match the shade of your teeth, and then carefully applies it to the area to be fixed. He builds up the restoration to match the shape of your teeth and then sets it with a curing light to bond the composite securely to your teeth.

Dental bonding is often an effective solution for these problems, but depending on your situation, we may recommend a different type of cosmetic treatment like porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Give us a call today to learn more and schedule a consultation.
