What’s The Deal With Teeth Bonding?

If you have grown insecure with your smile, because of deep staining or worn and jagged edges, it’s time to stop hiding. Teeth bonding can help. But did you know that even serious cosmetic concerns that have haunted you for years, such as strangely small teeth or gaps between your teeth, could also be corrected with bonding? Of all the cosmetic treatments available, dental bonding is one of the fastest and most affordable, making it an ideal option for anyone wishing to cure smile woes, and get back to smiling confidently, instead.

What Makes Bonding Special

The reason bonding is one of the fastest ways to fix concerns with your teeth, is because the entire process can be completed in the dentist’s office, often in less than an hour. Unlike porcelain veneers, which must be custom-crafted by trained ceramicists, bonding is completed directly by the dentist.

First, your teeth will be gently prepared. Then the moldable composite resin, made to match your teeth’s natural coloring, will be applied. From there, the dentist will carefully sculpt the material until your ideal smile has been created.

A special light is then used to harden the material, creating a durable cosmetic treatment. (In fact, the material is the same one highly praised as a modern dental filling alternative to metal.)

Contouring Can Help, Too

If there are overlaps of some of your teeth, or any that are too large, the dentist may recommend a combination of bonding and contouring, which requires carefully filing away any portions of the teeth that are disproportionally large or misshapen. Together, these can often create a more ideal smile, leaving patients far more confident and excited to show off their new, yet natural-looking smiles!
