7 Ways Bonding Can Beautify

7 Ways Bonding Can Beautify

Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure, but we sometimes find that patients don’t know exactly what it is. Today in the Harris Dental dental blog, we’ll explain how we use dental bonding in cosmetic dentistry.

The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and tooth-colored. It is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty, and then hardened or set with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

Dentists will usually consider the option of bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.

4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.

6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process. Because the material is easily shaped, teeth can be made to 7) look longer or reshaped entirely. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening as part of a total smile makeover.
