Do you have one or two teeth whose appearance always annoys you when you see yourself smiling in photographs? Perhaps the tooth is discolored or chipped, or there might be a tiny gap between two of your teeth. Cosmetic dental bonding may be able to help you saw goodbye to those little flaws. On this page, you will learn more about this easy, fast, and cost-effective treatment. It might be the key to helping you achieve the smile you have always wanted.
Dental bonding is also known as direct bonding. During the treatment, your dentist molds a tooth-colored resin over a tooth in order to disguise its aesthetic imperfections. It can correct a range of flaws, including chips, discoloration, small gaps between the teeth, and more. The resin is the same material that we use for tooth-colored fillings. It is biocompatible, able to be shade-matched to teeth, and bonds well with natural dental structures.

Some of the most noteworthy benefits of dental bonding include:
We usually recommend dental bonding for patients who would like to improve the appearance of just one or two teeth. If you would like a total smile makeover, we may recommend porcelain veneers instead. Veneers may also be the best treatment for you if you want your results to last for as long as possible. When you visit us for your cosmetic consultation, we will help you compare your treatment options and explain the pros and cons of each one.
