About Cosmetic Bonding
This treatment offers a great amount of versatility. First, this is true because we use composite – a synthetic resin material that is easy to sculpt into the desired shape. We will begin by using liquid resin, which we will place on the affected area. From there, we may smooth it over an aesthetic concern somewhat like paint. Or, we will mold the composite into the desire shape. Once we achieve the visual goal, we will set the material with a curing light so it is solid and dry. To complete the process, we will gently polish the bonded area for a smooth, seamless finish.
Benefits of Bonding
Cosmetic bonding effectively treats a wide variety of concerns. You may have noticed that this treatment adds the illusion of tissue or coverage, so it is appropriate for minor damage, open spaces, or areas that require an extension, such as a tooth that is shorter than those around it. Look over the following ways we may utilize this treatment to your advantage:
- We can cover aesthetic problems like isolated stains or minor chips
- Rather than resorting to braces for a small space between teeth, we may fill that gap with bonding, so your teeth look like they are touching one another
- Bonding effectively replaces minor tissue loss, such as a gently chipped tooth so the tooth looks whole again
