A cosmetic procedure which can enhance your smile and give you a full set of aesthetically natural and beautiful teeth, cosmetic bonding is performed using a resin which is matched to the color of your existing teeth to give a seamless look, and then hardened with a specific light to effectively bond this material to the tooth.
What Dental Bonding Fixes
We can recommend cosmetic bonding as an alternative to amalgam fillings, but they are also effective to fix:
- Decayed Teeth (Fill Cavities)
- Chipped Teeth
- Cracked Teeth
- Large Gaps
- Worn Or Shortened Teeth
- Exposed Roots
- And More
How It Works
Cosmetic bonding is very often chosen for its simple process and same-day results, so there is little preparation needed. We will meet with you and discuss your expectations and your needs, as well as to find the shade of resin that best matches your teeth.
During the bonding process, we will roughen the tooth and condition it so that the resin will stick better to the tooth, and last longer. We then apply, shape and smooth the resin on your tooth and harden it with the UV light, afterward shaping it even further. We then polish the hardened resin to match the consistency of the rest of your teeth so that you get a full, seamless smile!
