If your teeth aren’t perfect, you are not alone. Countless patients have esthetic flaws within their smile, ranging from gaps and chips to stains and misalignment. What you may not know, however, is that you don’t necessarily need to empty your wallet to correct these imperfections. With the use of dental bonding, you may be able to attain the beautiful and confident smile you’ve always wanted in an affordable, quick and painless cosmetic dental treatment.
What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding involves the use of composite resin to alter the shape, size and color of a tooth or multiple teeth. Composite resin is a white glass and plastic mixture that bonds directly to the enamel of your tooth. Once it is custom-matched in color and carefully applied to the affected tooth, the composite resin is hardened with a special curing light and polished to a seamless, natural-looking finish. The entire process takes minutes and requires no needles or anesthetic.
Can Bonding Correct My Imperfections?
While cosmetic dental bonding is an affordable, effective and highly convenient way to reverse your smile flaws, it is not appropriate for every type of imperfection. Wide tooth gaps, severe misalignment or large chips may be too significant for bonding to correct. In such cases, you may benefit from veneers, Invisalign orthodontics or other cosmetic dental treatments.
If you have minor esthetic concerns within your smile, however, you make an ideal candidate for cosmetic bonding using composite resin. Dental bonding is known for correcting the following:
- Small or uneven gaps between front teeth
- Small chips and fractures
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Stubborn tooth stains
