Stains are often the most common issue affecting a person’s smile and can be usually treated with teeth-whitening. For patients who experience chipped or cracked teeth and want to regain their full smile, the cosmetic dentistry service of bonding may be an appropriate route to take.
What is Bonding?
When we talk about bonding a tooth, we mean that we are building it up and restoring its structure by using tooth-colored composite-resin material. The resin is custom designed to match the color, shade, shape, and size of your other teeth. Similarly to porcelain veneers, bonding can help close gaps in your teeth, giving your smile a uniformed look.
What is the Treatment Like?
We will evaluate your teeth and oral structures first. Then we will match and personalize the bonding materials to blend into your smile. When the composite material is ready, we will administer a local anesthetic to the tooth or teeth needing treatment and attach the resin material. A curing light will help harden the bonding, followed by a polish to help make the material shine.
