Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of flawed teeth. It utilizes composite resin, which is a putty-like material comprised of fine glass and acrylic particles. This substance can be personalized to mimic the color of your existing enamel, creating natural-looking results.
Your cosmetic dentist can use dental bonding to correct teeth with a variety of conditions, such as:
Since bonding is a cosmetic treatment, your teeth should be free of structural flaws or other health issues before undergoing the procedure. Problems like gum disease or tooth decay should be addressed beforehand.
The dental bonding process is an easy one that usually only takes 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. In most cases, it should be painless enough that you won’t even require a local anesthetic.
