What Is Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding (also known as tooth bonding and dental bonding) is the application of a tooth-colored resin to improve the appearance of your smile.
Your dentist will go over the pros and cons of teeth bonding so you can make an informed decision for your smile. During the cosmetic bonding procedure, your dentist will apply the resin before using a LED light to harden it to your tooth.
Teeth bonding for gaps can be an alternative to orthodontic treatment, as long as you don’t have an overbite or other bite issue that needs to be corrected. Dental bonding for your teeth can last up to 10 years before needing to be replaced.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dental Bonding?
You may be a candidate for dental bonding if you have:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Tooth discoloration
- Gapped teeth
Cosmetic bonding only takes one appointment, which means you get to spend less time in the dentist’s chair. You also won’t need pain relievers unless we need to fill a tooth.
