Bonding can be completed on its own, or in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments like whitening, dental veneers, or a complex smile makeover.
Composite Bonding Offers Affordable Cosmetic Results
What if you need to do something about a problematic area on a tooth, but don’t quite require a comprehensive smile makeover? Sometimes something as small as a chip, gap, or uneven tooth can starve you of the confidence and beautiful smile that you deserve. When that’s the case, cosmetic dental bonding might be the right solution.
A Fast, Minimally Invasive Cosmetic Option
Dental bonding uses white, tooth-colored materials like those used in cosmetic fillings. In the case of a misshaped tooth or surface irregularity, the enamel is gently conditioned and the composite is formed over the area into the preferred shape. Once achieved, Michelle Eng, DDS uses a bright ultraviolet light to cure the material, so that it is permanently bonded to the tooth.
In most situations, local anesthetic (numbing) isn’t even necessary!
Is Bonding Right for Me?
You may want to consider making bonding a part of your cosmetic treatment if you are concerned with areas such as:
- Exposed root surfaces caused by aggressive tooth brushing or gum recession
- Uneven surfaces, pits, or enamel irregularities
- Localized discoloration or spots on a tooth
- Misshaped tooth
- Small gaps between teeth
- Uneven edge, such as from an accidental fracture
