How Can Cosmetic Bonding Transform My Smile?

What Is Composite Bonding?

Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material to the natural tooth surfaces to mask flaws or imperfections. Also known as dental bonding or composite bonding, the cost-effective procedure can improve the shape, color, size, alignment, or overall appearance of your teeth with beautifully natural results.

How Can Cosmetic Bonding Transform Your Smile?

We may recommend dental bonding for the following purposes:

  • To repair chipped, cracked, or decayed teeth
  • To cover severely stained or discolored teeth that do not respond to traditional whitening treatments
  • To close small gaps or uneven spaces between teeth
  • To correct minor tooth misalignment
  • To improve the appearance of misshapen, small, short, worn, or otherwise imperfect teeth
  • To cover and protect exposed tooth roots
  • To enhance the color, size, shape, or appearance of teeth

What Are the Benefits of Composite Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a non-invasive, pain-free procedure that requires no local anesthetics or drilling. Unlike other restorative options that require the preparation of your teeth by removing some of their structure, cosmetic bonding leaves your tooth structure intact, making it a conservative cosmetic dentistry option.

Cosmetic bonding can transform your smile in one short office visit. It can address a wide range of cosmetic concerns, from making your teeth look whiter and brighter to improving their symmetry or transforming their overall appearance. With proper care, tooth bonding will enhance your smile for many years to come!

What Is the Composite Bonding Procedure?

We will start your smile transformation by carefully selecting the shade of the composite resin material to closely match the color of your teeth. Next, we will use a conditioning fluid to roughen the surfaces of your tooth structure to help the material bond.

We will apply the composite resin material directly to your tooth surfaces and carefully sculpt it and mold it to resemble your natural teeth. A curing light will harden the material and help it bond to your tooth surfaces.

The last step is polishing the composite bonding material to match the sheen of the neighboring teeth, leaving it with a natural-looking finish. Each tooth takes about 30 minutes to an hour to transform, leaving you with a beautiful, seamless smile. 

Cosmetic Bonding Aftercare

Caring for your restored teeth is the same as caring for natural teeth. You will need to maintain good oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing. Avoid biting down on hard objects or foods to prevent damaging or chipping your restoration. Make sure to visit Highlight Family Dentistry for regular dental exams and cleanings to ensure your teeth and restorations stay in excellent shape.
