For many people, a perfect smile is the ultimate beauty goal. Your teeth are visible when you speak, smile, yawn, and laugh – so you want to be able to show them off without feeling embarrassed. However, not everyone has a perfect smile, and there are many who think that a perfect smile is not achievable. If you are unhappy with your smile, keep reading to learn if dental bonding is right for you.
Cosmetic bonding is a dental procedure used to restore a person’s smile. Cosmetic bonding is a quick, effective solution that can be used to address a wide range of dental concerns:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Gaps between the teeth
- A “small” tooth
- Discolored teeth
- Tooth decay
- Protect against gum recession
Patients of all ages can benefit from cosmetic bonding. In fact, other than cavities, a chipped tooth is the most common type of dental damage in children. Cosmetic dental bonding has been used to repair baby teeth and permanent teeth in order to restore a smile’s appearance.
Cosmetic dental bonding is a simple procedure. Once you are told that you are a good candidate for the procedure, an appointment can be made. The typical appointment for dental bonding takes about an hour. During this time, your tooth will be prepared with an etching solution to help the bonding material bond with the tooth. The material, a composite resin, will be molded into its desired shape. A special curing light will be used to harden the material so that it bonds with the natural tooth. Once the material hardens, it will be polished to match the sheen of your natural teeth.
