Are you unhappy with the current appearance of your teeth? Whether they’re chipped, discolored, or cracked, living with a smile you’re not satisfied with can harm your self-esteem. If the damage is bad enough, it could even have a negative impact on your oral health. With a dental bonding treatment, you won’t have to worry about that issue any longer.
What is Dental Bonding?
For our bonding treatments, we use a natural-looking composite resin. We will first prepare your tooth by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. After it sets, we’ll apply the resin and sculpt it into the necessary shape to hide and fix the issue you have with your tooth. A UV light is used to harden the resin, giving you a brand-new appearance!
Is Bonding Right for Me?
Bonding is an alternative to veneers. Unlike veneers, bonding does not require a small layer of your tooth to be removed, so it will be a better option for those who wish to avoid permanently altering their teeth in such a way.
They are not stain-resistant, however. So, if your natural teeth were heavily stained, you might want to be careful with drinking coffee, soda, and wine. The material is also not as strong as your natural teeth. Chipping can occur if you consistently bite into ice or chew your fingernails.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?
- Looks completely natural
- Doesn’t require the removal of portions of your teeth
- Easy treatment that takes only one visit
- Last for 3-5 years with good oral hygiene
