Chipped or stained teeth can make you feel so self-conscious that you stop smiling. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution to your problem: cosmetic bonding. Dr. Mike Deldar of Deldar Dental, cosmetic dentistry experts in Noblesville, IN, share information on this affordable dental procedure.
What is cosmetic bonding?
Your dentist uses composite resin, a flexible plastic-based material, to repair defects in your teeth. The resin is tinted to match your tooth color and can be molded into any shape.
What are the ways bonding can reshape my smile?
Bonding is a good solution for several cosmetic issues, including:
- Cracked teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Gum recession
- Stained teeth
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Short teeth
Cosmetic bonding is ideal for filling in small gaps between teeth, although if you have large gaps and also have bite issues, orthodontia. might be a better option. Bonding is also a good alternative to traditional fillings. The bonding material matches your tooth color, unlike metal fillings, and your dentist doesn’t have to remove as much healthy tooth surface to place the fillings. One of the most impressive uses of cosmetic bonding involves totally changing the appearance of teeth. Thanks to the flexibility of the bonding material, your dentist can lengthen your tooth or make a crooked tooth look straight.
What happens during the cosmetic bonding process?
Before the cosmetic bonding process begins, your dentist will choose a resin color that most closely matches your natural color. He’ll prepare the tooth by lightly etching it and add a coat of a special pre-bonding liquid. When the tooth is prepared, he’ll place the resin on it, shaping the material as needed to correct defects. He’ll use an ultraviolet light to cure the bonding, which will ensure that the material is just as hard as your natural teeth. A quick polish completes the process.
