Is there an element of your smile you wish you could change? Many people are not fully satisfied with the appearance of their teeth, and there are all kinds of treatments and methods that can be employed to improve tooth aesthetics. Dental bonding is a simple procedure that can help your smile look its best.
Dental bonding is a process used to repair tooth damage, as well as for many cosmetic purposes. It can fix chipped and cracked teeth, reduce gaps between teeth, alter tooth alignment, improve the shape and color of teeth, and even protect vulnerable tooth roots that have been exposed. It is a versatile and powerful treatment option for people who want to improve the overall appearance of their teeth, but may not be comfortable with something like a veneer.
During a bonding procedure, durable composite resin is adhered to the surface of the tooth. It can be color-matched to the surrounding teeth and will be indiscernible once hardened. The tooth is first prepared with a micro-etching gel, then applied with a bonding agent. The composite resin is placed on the tooth and hardened with a special light. Once it is hard it can be shaped and buffed.
If there is something about your smile you don’t like, dental bonding might be the solution you have been looking for. It is a safe and effective way to improve tooth appearance and repair damage.
