Cosmetic Dental Bonding Made Easy
Cosmetic bonding is a procedure in which a resin is applied over the surface of the teeth. The resin is molded to conceal any flaws and enhance the patient’s appearance. Cosmetic bonding results in a beautiful smile that is visibly healthier and more even.
Cosmetic bonding is a minimally invasive process that can be performed with a single visit. It can be used to enhance a patient’s smile, by addressing the following:
- Fixing chipped teeth, covering holes, and repairing other superficial damage
- Adding width to thin teeth or teeth that are set far from the rest
- Closing gaps between teeth
- Adding height to short or eroded teeth
- Covering bruises or discoloration and improving the color of the teeth
Although cosmetic bonding is a non-invasive and straightforward procedure it is imperative that you work with an experienced dentist who can address your particular needs while helping you maintain a natural appearance. Cosmetic bonding requires both skill and artistry. The procedure begins with the dentist matching the resin to your teeth. The resin is then added to one tooth at a time and shaped as necessary to correct the imperfection. Once the dentist is satisfied with the appearance of the resin, it is hardened with the help of a special curing lamp. The procedure is completed by polishing the teeth to a sheen that closely resembles natural tooth color and translucency. There is no downtime associated with this treatment, which means you can resume your normal activities directly after the procedure.
- The procedure is non-invasive and doesn’t require anesthesia or drilling
- In only one appointment, the appearance of your smile will improve
- Bonding can help reinforce teeth and provide an extra layer of protection to the natural tooth enamel.
- Repairs to bonded teeth are simple.
- Cosmetic bonding results in a visibly improved and natural smile
