Cosmetic bonding is used to correct structural deficiencies of teeth and improve a variety of aesthetic imperfections. With the application of a tooth-colored composite resin to teeth that are chipped, cracked, misshapen, or stained, cosmetic bonding has the ability to restore functionality to the teeth while simultaneously improving their appearance. Our dentists here at Preferred Family Dental can renew both the look and function of your teeth with cosmetic dental bonding.
Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding
Similar to other cosmetic dentistry treatments, the main goal of cosmetic bonding is to enhance the appearance of your smile. Cosmetic bonding provides many of the same cosmetic advantages as porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns, but is less invasive and can often be completed in just one office visit. Using materials that match your natural tooth color, cosmetic bonding is considered one of the easiest and fastest methods of rejuvenating damaged or worn teeth. Many patients say that, after undergoing the procedure, they are less self-conscious when they smile and feel great about the new look of their teeth.
Cosmetic Bonding Procedure
The cosmetic bonding process utilizes a durable, composite resin to discreetly improve the shape and structure of the affected tooth or teeth. The composite material is created in a color that matches your natural teeth as much as possible. One of our dentists will apply the material on the tooth layer by layer, and then use a high-intensity light to harden it to the surface. The bonding material is then shaped and sculpted for the most natural-looking results. The entire procedure can often be completed in a single treatment session.
