Cosmetic Tooth Bonding is a common solution for:
- Fixing or repairing chipped or cracked teeth
- Reducing unsightly gaps or spaces between teeth
- Hiding discoloration or faded areas on the tooth’s surface
Often used to improve the appearance of your teeth and enhance your smile. As the name indicates, composite material, either a plastic or resin, is bonded to an existing tooth. Unlike veneers or crowns, composite bonding removes little, if any, of the original tooth.
The process is fairly straightforward. A composite material is applied to the tooth, where it is then shaped and formed in just the right way to appear natural and to correct the necessary problem. Once the composite has been applied, it is hardened using a special light.
Finally the finished tooth is polished to perfection, restoring or even improving your smile. While cosmetic bonding can certainly be used to treat discoloration of the teeth, in many instances teeth whitening may be the more appropriate option.
