One dentist appointment could be all you need to repair minor imperfections in your smile.
If you have ever felt self-conscious about your front teeth, ask your dentist if cosmetic bonding is right for you. Cosmetic bonding can repair small chips, stains, and cavities.
We’ve also used dental bonding to fill slight gaps between front teeth.
In some cases, teeth bonding for gaps can reduce the need for orthodontic treatment.
Cosmetic Bonding Procedure
Unlike other cosmetic dentistry procedures, we don’t have to remove enamel from your teeth. Many of our patients appreciate that teeth bonding is minimally invasive. During the procedure, we’ll roughen the surface of your tooth so it can make a strong bond with the composite resin.
The resin is a putty-like substance we sculpt to the contours of your tooth so it looks natural. Your dentist will also make sure that the resin matches the color of your natural enamel before hardening it to your tooth with a blue light or laser.
If you plan to whiten your teeth, we recommend waiting to do dental bonding. That way, we’ll be able to match the color of the resin to your new white teeth. Your dentist will be more than happy to create a treatment plan that meets your smile goals.
