You may have heard about smile makeovers worthy of the stars with porcelain veneers, but veneers can be a serious investment and a major change. Not everyone’s smile is in need of an overhaul — some grins just need a little help to fix minor imperfections. If you’re dissatisfied with the look of your teeth, dental bonding may be the answer. Teeth bonding can correct many of the most common tooth flaws, including gaps between teeth, disproportion in length, and discoloration.
Teeth bonding is the use of tooth-colored composite resin to change the look of your teeth. The composite is moldable, so it can be applied and shaped to adjust the size and structure of your teeth. Bonding is done with the same material as dental fillings and color-matched to your smile. The composite is bonded to the tooth to seamlessly blend in with the look and feel of your natural teeth. In a single dental visit, dental bonding can change your smile for the better. This is a conservative cosmetic dentistry treatment, unlike veneers. Tooth bonding is a cost-effective treatment where small changes add up to a big difference.
The Benefits of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding has many uses. It can be used to:
- Fill spaces and gaps between teeth
- Fill and cover cracks in teeth
- Repair chipped teeth, restoring their structure
- Lengthen short teeth so they appear more uniform
- Adjust the shape of slightly crooked teeth so they appear straight
- Whiten discolored teeth that do not respond to professional teeth whitening treatment
Dental bonding is affordable and accessible to the average patient, meaning anyone can utilize cosmetic dentistry to correct their smile. Your treatment can be done in just one dental visit or across several visits if you desire additional changes. Don’t be ashamed of your smile because your teeth embarrass you; get your confidence back with dental bonding.
