Dental Bonding

Dr. D’Angelo, Dr. Olson, and Dr. Hoffman offer dental bonding as a quick yet beautiful alternative to porcelain veneers. The entirely painless procedure involves applying a thin coat of resin to damaged teeth to make them stronger and to correct discoloration.

Although not as durable as porcelain veneers, dental bonding can last for years and produces immediate results.

Bonding can be used to restore teeth that are cracked, chipped, discolored or misarranged.

A tooth is prepared for bonding by lightly etching its surface than applying a bonding liquid. After the liquid is set, a plastic resin is applied to the tooth and sculpted into a natural and desired shape by our La Jolla dentists.

The bonding procedure is usually completed in a single office visit and can significantly improve the appearance of a tooth.
