Composite bonding is an easy and affordable way of creating a natural looking smile. It can be used for either cosmetic or restorative purposes, making it very versatile in the dental office. Composite bonding is a highly adaptable procedure that can be used to fill in gaps, reshape the teeth, or even change their color. It can also be used to repair chips and cracks without sacrificing the integrity of the natural tooth.
What is Composite Bonding?
Bonding material is made of composite resin and porcelain, which are very dense and can safely be used to protect damaged teeth. When applied to the teeth, the bonding materials take on the appearance and function of natural teeth, making it virtually in detectible to other people. The process is quick and painless, and nearly everyone qualifies for the procedure.
Many people choose bonding because it is minimally invasive and requires very little office time. In fact, bonding is considered one of the most conservative treatment options in modern dentistry. Most bonding procedures are performed in just minutes and require very little preparation of the natural teeth. The materials can be formed and color-matched in a single office visit unlike other restorations that require multiple visits spaced over several days or weeks.
You may be a candidate for composite bonding if you have discolored, chipped, broken, crooked, or unattractively spaced teeth that are a source of self-consciousness for you. You may be surprised at how easily bonding can transform your smile. For more information about bonding and to find out if it is right for you, contact our office to schedule a consultation.
