Bonding

Dental Bonding on the front teeth is an excellent method for repairing minor imperfections such as chips and discolorations.  It can also be used to fill gaps between the teeth.  Cosmetic Bonding has some wonderful advantages over other esthetic treatments.  Generally it requires little or no tooth removal, so anesthetic is unnecessary.

The results are immediate, so you can walk out with a finished product.  It is considerably more economical than veneers or porcelain crowns.  It frequently can be performed "invisibly".   Also, it affords me the chance to express my artistic creativity.  With so many different products available, I get to mix and match shades, layer materials, and sculpt and polish the shape to create a result that we hope no one ever notices.

Dental Bonding is a procedure in which a tooth colored composite resin material (similar to a plastic) is applied and then sculpted and shaped and hardened with a special light, which ultimately "bonds" the material to the tooth. This material comes in several shades and various other optical properties so it can be matched to the natural shade of your tooth. While bleaching is always cosmetic and veneers are usually cosmetic, the bonding procedure is often used to restore or repair damaged teeth, while having a cosmetic benefit.

Dental Bonding can be used to:

  • Repair chipped or fractured teeth
  • Close spaces between teeth
  • Change the shape of teeth
  • Fix white spots
  • Mask discolored teeth
  • Replace old discolored fillings, front or back
  • Repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
