What is Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding is a type of treatment that uses color-matching composite resin to hide tooth imperfections. Because it is malleable, it is easy for our dental team to shape and sculpt it into place. Many patients opt for this cosmetic service because it is more affordable than other solutions (i.e., veneers) and does not require multiple dental visits. In just one appointment, we can easily hide your flaws and send you on your way with a revitalized smile.
The Cosmetic Bonding Process
You will first need to schedule an initial consultation with your cosmetic dentist to determine if you’re eligible for cosmetic bonding. If so, our team will use a shade guide to determine the correct color of the resin. Once it is prepared, we will lightly etch the front surface of your tooth enamel to ensure the resin adheres.
Applying the resin directly onto your tooth enamel, we will shape and sculpt it into place. This will allow the resin to adequately cover the flaws and blend in with your natural tooth shade. We will then use a specialized curing light to harden the resin. After a final polish, you’ll receive detailed instructions regarding how you can take care of your teeth to ensure your results last as long as possible.
Who is a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Bonding?
Candidates for cosmetic bonding must have good general oral and overall health. If we discover there are any signs of tooth decay or gum disease, we’ll first need to treat these problems before moving forward with cosmetic dentistry of any kind.
During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your smile to determine if you have any of the following imperfections:
- Minor gaps
- Minor misalignment
- Misshapen teeth
If so, you’ll be recommended for cosmetic bonding, and we will craft a personalized treatment plan that includes information about the treatment, process, and overall cost of your care.
