What does dental bonding do?
Dental bonding is a process that enables your dentist to correct cosmetic problems with a composite dental material. The composite can be shaded to really enhance the natural beauty of the patient’s smile. Once applied, it can be shaped to the tooth to give it a natural appearance.
What problems can dental bonding correct?
Our dentist places dental bonding is placed directly over your existing dental enamel, making it an excellent choice for perfecting the appearance of stained or damaged teeth. Here are some common cosmetic dental problems that can easily be corrected with the help of dental bonding.
- Teeth that are dark, stained, or otherwise discolored – especially teeth that are resistant to traditional teeth whitening procedures
- Dental enamel that is cracked, chipped or otherwise damaged
- Misshapen teeth that have irregular or rough edges
- Misaligned or crooked teeth – using dental bonding we may be able to build up parts of your teeth with dental bonding to give your smile a more symmetrical appearance.
What are the benefits of dental bonding?
Many patients choose dental bonding when appropriate because it is an affordable solution to a number of problems. Dental bonding is also very convenient since it can virtually alter the appearance of your smile quickly and easily in just a single dental appointment.
