Small Cosmetic Changes Can Make a Big Difference

Dental bonding uses a special resin to restore the appearance of damaged or misshapen teeth. Bonding is a relatively quick, straightforward, and minimally invasive cosmetic dental treatment that can resolve several aesthetic issues, including the following:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Large spaces between teeth
- Discolored teeth
After a consultation, your dentist will first gently roughen the surfaces of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding material. The bonding material will be applied and carefully shaped. Then, an ultraviolet light will be used to cure or harden the bonding material, ensuring it is ideally shaped to meet your aesthetic goals. The procedure generally does not require anesthetic.
The bonding material provides a natural, fresh look to your teeth. While bonding will not last forever, it can endure for many years. Like your natural teeth, bonding is subject to staining from coffee, red wine, and other dark-colored beverages and foods.
The application of bonding material is as much of an art as it is a dental science. The experience and skill of your dentist heavily contribute to the final look of your teeth after a bonding treatment.
