Dental bonding is the process of permanently attaching necessary dental materials to existing teeth using a powerful dental adhesive and a specialized curing light. Dental bonding is necessary for veneers, crowns, bridges, inlays and onlays. Patterson will determine the best type of bond to use, depending upon your specific needs. Dental bonding at Casey Patterson DDS generally requires just one office visit, and it is typically pain free. When necessary, an anesthetic may be employed to reduce any potential discomfort associated with bonding various restorative materials.
