What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a special resin that is used to place over the natural teeth to cover imperfections.
Can bonding fix gaps?
Yes! Composite resin bonding is a terrific way to address gaps between teeth. The material is used to give the appearance of the teeth touching together, eliminating unwanted gaps. This solution provides a fast and natural look.
What else can bonding be used for?
Dental bonding can also be used to address:
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Permanent staining
Some patients may want to consider the benefits of using dental bonding for their smiles. This material is known for lasting several years before needing to be replaced. However, it is susceptible to staining. Alternative patients may want to consider if they are interested in a long-term solution – porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are facings that are bonded over the front of teeth to change their appearance. Veneers can address many of the same issues as composite resin bonding but in a more permanent manner. We encourage patients to ask about this solution as well and make an educated decision regarding what is most appropriate for their specific needs.
The process of obtaining composite resin bonding
The first step is undergoing an evaluation with a professional to find out if composite resin can address the problem at hand. Then, during that same appointment, patients can have the bonding placed, hardened, and polished.
