The tiniest flaw in your smile can play a huge role in the way you feel about your appearance. If chips or gaps in your teeth are an aesthetic concern, composite bonding may be an option for you.
Bonding uses custom matched resin to cover and rebuild areas of your enamel that have minor imperfections. The shade blends into your natural tooth, so that it looks natural when you smile.
Some of the situations where bonding might be appropriate include:
Because bonding is primarily for aesthetic purposes, it’s not recommended for repairing large fractures or decaying teeth that require extra reinforcement.
Dental bonding is an efficient way to cover and correct aesthetic imperfections in your smile. If you’ve been considering cosmetic treatment but want something that’s simple and fits your budget, this option may be your best alternative.
Most bonding procedures take less than an hour to complete. You may not even need to have the tooth number.
What should you expect during the appointment? First, your tooth is gently conditioned and we match the color of your enamel with our shade guide. Next, the appropriate color of composite will be selected and shaped over your tooth. Finally, we use a bright light to cure it into place.
