Minor Cosmetic Fixes
When your teeth display minor cosmetic dental imperfections that don’t require extensive correction, teeth bonding is often one of the most cost-effective solutions. Unlike tooth contouring, during which we remove a portion of a tooth’s enamel, bonding involves adding material to build-up or cover areas of concern.
What Is Teeth Bonding?
Teeth bonding describes gently adding tooth-colored composite resin – the same material used for white fillings – to build up your tooth structure. The composite resin will bond to your tooth to create a durable, esthetically pleasing enhancement that can cover a number of different smile imperfections. The procedure does not require numbing or extensive treatment and is less expensive than other cosmetic and restorative alternatives.
What Are the Benefits and Uses of Teeth Bonding?
Because we can shade the composite to match your teeth, the finished product will be virtually unnoticeable, and dental bonding can address a variety of cosmetic concerns, including:
- Gently chipped teeth
- Mildly cracked teeth
- Teeth that appear too small
- Stained teeth, particularly those that respond poorly to bleaching or other whitening methods
- Gaps between teeth
- Protection of exposed teeth as a result of a receding gum line
- Awkwardly shaped teeth
Am I a Good Candidate?
While dental bonding is often the procedure of choice, if your teeth are in poor health or if your smile is composed of prosthetics, such as dental implants or bridges, we will need to discuss other options with you.
