A cosmetic dentist’s skillset includes many ways of fixing most types of cosmetic tooth problems. In the past few years, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and same-day teeth whitening have received a lot of publicity. In today’s post, we are going to talk about an effective, yet relatively uncelebrated dental treatment that has been used successfully for decades: dental bonding.
The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is strong and natural looking. It is applied to the teeth while soft and putty-like, and then hardened (or cured) with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.
Dentists use bonding to repair tooth troubles caused by decay, chips, or cracks. Large spaces between healthy teeth can be filled with bonding material, and bonding can safeguard tooth roots if the gums have loosened.
Discolored teeth can also be lightened with bonding. Since bonding material is easily molded, teeth can be lengthened or re-shaped to more beautiful proportions. Bonding is usually used as part of a total cosmetic dental smile makeover.
