|Cosmetic dental bonding is a fairly simple procedure that applies composite material to the teeth for shaping. This procedure can fix a variety of imperfections, leaving you with a beautifully improved smile. There are many great reasons to consider it.
Dental bonding is a good cosmetic dentistry procedure because it provides beautiful, high-quality results. Your teeth will look beautiful and natural. Other people won't even know that they have been altered cosmetically.
Treat Stains and Discoloration
If you want to treat stained and discolored teeth without having to wait for whitening treatments to work, bonding can be a good alternative. Composite resin also hides discoloration caused by internal issues, which can't be treated with traditional whitening methods. For some people, this is the only way to get a whiter smile.
Many other cosmetic dentistry procedures require multiple dental visits in order to achieve the final product. That's not true with cosmetic bonding. For many people, only one treatment is necessary. While you may need a follow-up visit if you are improving the appearance of several teeth, a majority of the work can be done it a single trip to our office.
Preserve Natural Teeth
Another great benefit of dental bonding is that it is a fairly conservative treatment. With crowns and veneers, a portion of the enamel needs to be shaved away to apply the restoration. With bonding, most of the natural tooth remains in place. All that's required is an etch of the surface with a weak acid to roughen it. Bonding is a great way to make a cosmetic change without a major commitment.
