Cosmetic dental bonding is a painless, non-invasive procedure used to mask dental flaws and enhance the smile's appearance. Dental bonding treatment can be completed in a single dental appointment, allowing patients to instantly enjoy a beautiful, stunning smile.
During the cosmetic dental bonding procedure, the teeth are thoroughly cleaned and a special solution is painted on the teeth. This solution makes the surface of the teeth porous, enabling a strong bond between the teeth and dental bonding material. Once the teeth are prepared, the dental bonding material, made of a tooth-colored resin, will be applied to the teeth. The resin is soft and malleable, allowing it to be directly applied and shaped on the teeth. Once the desired size and shape is achieved, the resin is cured, or hardened. The bonded teeth are then finely shaped and polished to complete treatment.
Dental bonding can address a variety of dental flaws, allowing many who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth to enjoy the smile they've always wanted. Some of the most common aesthetic issues dental bonding can address include:
Dental bonding can help many people achieve their dental goals, but it is not appropriate for all patients. Ideal candidates for dental bonding should have healthy gums and teeth, free of severe decay or gum disease. Candidates should also wish to improve the appearance of their smile due to one or more of the aesthetic issues previously outlined.
