What Is Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding can be used to make various corrections to your smile. The process is very simple. First, we clean the tooth in question, and in some cases, we may remove any areas that have suffered from decay. Then we will apply composite resin to the tooth to hide the flaws that have been bothering you. After carefully sculpting the resin, we’ll harden it in place with a curing light.   

Composite resin is an excellent material for improving the appearance of the teeth because it can be shaded to blend in seamlessly with your enamel. As such, the results of your cosmetic bonding treatment will look very natural, allowing you to show off your newly improved grin without reservation.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Bonding?

Our team can use cosmetic bonding to address a variety of issues, including chipped teeth, stubborn dental stains, minor cracks, small gaps in the smile, and more. Once you let us know what sort of changes you want to make, we can figure out whether cosmetic bonding could help you accomplish your goals.

Generally speaking, cosmetic bonding tends to be more suitable for patients who want a quick solution for minor dental flaws. If you have more extensive corrections in mind, you may want to think about having a different cosmetic procedure performed instead.

To confirm that you’re a good candidate for cosmetic bonding, we will need to perform an examination of your mouth for signs of oral health issues like cavities and gum disease. These issues should be taken care of before we start any cosmetic treatments.

The Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding

When trying to figure out which cosmetic dental service is right for you, be sure to remember that cosmetic bonding offers the following advantages:

  • The procedure usually only requires one visit, and it is so painless that your mouth likely won’t even need to be numbed first.
  • You can expect the results to last for several years with the right care. Maintenance is quite simple; it mainly consists of things you likely already do to protect your natural teeth, such as brushing regularly.
  • For many patients, cosmetic bonding can serve as a cost-effective option for making multiple kinds of aesthetic improvements.
