Keep reading to learn about this common cosmetic procedure and find out whether or not it’s right for your smile.
What Is Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding (also called direct bonding) is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that your dentist uses to rebuild damaged or missing tooth enamel. Using biocompatible composite resin, a material that can be customized to match the shade of your surrounding teeth, a broken, chipped, stained, or otherwise imperfect tooth can be dramatically improved. Most cosmetic bonding procedures are completed in a single visit to the dentist’s office.
What Does Cosmetic Bonding Fix?
Cosmetic bonding is perfect for correcting minor flaws that take away from your smile in a big way. It can be used to improve the appearance of teeth that are…
- Oddly shaped
- Unevenly textured
- Slightly gapped
- And others
Cosmetic bonding can also provide a wonderful alternative to porcelain veneers for patients who do not wish to spend as much or who want to keep their natural tooth enamel intact.
The Procedure for Cosmetic Bonding
If you need to have dental bonding, you can look forward to a quick and easy procedure. It does not take long to complete this treatment, and you’ll love the results!
Here’s how it works.
- Your dentist cleans, dries, and isolates the tooth to make sure no saliva enters the area
- A special solution is applied to roughen the tooth enamel and encourage bonding
- The composite resin is applied and sculpted into its new form
- Your dentist checks to make sure it fits well with your dentition
- The composite bonding is hardened under a special light
- The resin is polished… and that’s it!
Taking care of a tooth that has been repaired with dental bonding is easy. Continue to brush and floss regularly. If it is a front tooth that has been bonded, you may want to avoid biting directly into hard foods like apples and corn on the cob to avoid breaking or damaging the restoration.
