Dental bonding lets cosmetic dentists restore or improve their patients’ smiles with a revolutionary material that resembles the natural tooth. Most dental bonding treatments are quick, painless, and minimally invasive. Plus, they make the teeth look natural and bright.
What is dental bonding?
Composite, or dental, bonding uses a tooth-colored resin, or clay-like material, to reshape and restore a tooth. Composite bonding can be used to repair chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. This technique can also be used to fill in gaps and improve the color of the smile. Once the composite bonding resin is applied to the teeth and shaped perfectly, the cosmetic dentist shines a UV light over the material to harden it. This ensures that the resin material dries and hardens for long-lasting, restorative results.
How can you benefit from dental bonding?
If you have chipped or cracked teeth, your cosmetic dentist may choose to use dental bonding in order to recreate the tooth’s natural shape. Chips in your tooth could jeopardize your dental health and put you at risk for cavities. Dental bonding can decrease that risk and restore the look of your smile.
How does it fill in unwanted gaps?
If you’re unhappy with gaps between your teeth, you may also be a candidate for dental bonding. Your cosmetic dentist can fill in any gaps with the tooth-colored resin material to create the appearance of a straight, beautiful smile. He can also use dental bonding to improve any discoloration of your teeth so that your smile shines brighter.
Composite resin can also be used to replace old amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings are very noticeable and vulnerable to extreme temperatures. Fortunately, you can choose to have these silver-colored fillings replaced with dental bonding so that your teeth look and feel healthy.
