Teeth bonding can:
- Repair slightly chipped or cracked teeth
- Close small gaps between front teeth
- Repair teeth that have had minor cavities
- Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
- Improve the shape of your teeth
- Even out your smile
The main drawback to cosmetic bonding is durability. Teeth bonding is not as durable as porcelain veneers, soare more prone to cracking. However, this can easily be repaired in a future dental appointment.
Cosmetic Bonding Process
During your appointment, our dentists will roughen up the surface of your teeth so that the resin will adhere. We will then apply a putty-like resin on the surface of your tooth where it’s needed. This tooth-colored resin is then hardened with an ultraviolet light or laser — helping your teeth to look and function better than ever.
Cosmetic bonding is minimally invasive and doesn’t usually require anesthesia. After the resin has cured, you can eat and drink normally and should experience little to no discomfort. You can care for bonded teeth the same way you’d care for any other tooth.
