What Is Dental Bonding?

Composite dental resin has properties similar to natural teeth. The composite is applied directly to the tooth by the dentist, after which it is shaped, hardened, and polished. This technique is often used for minor defects in teeth. If you take good care of it, bonding can last ten years or longer. This makes teeth bonding a highly effective way to help restore your teeth without worrying about replacing them in the near future.

Choose a Cosmetic Dentist

Many dentists use dental bonding to restore teeth, but the results vary. A skilled cosmetic dentist is an artist who understands how to work with the material to match the color, characteristics, and translucency of your natural teeth. This is why we ensure our team goes through the proper training for adequate dental bonding that is more likely to get the results you're looking for. There are different shades of resin. They have to be carefully chosen and mixed to create a natural appearance. Care must also be taken to ensure the gloss and shape of the bonding matches your natural teeth. From the gumline to the edge of the tooth, the material should look completely natural, and an expert cosmetic dentist can produce that look. The photos below show how a cosmetic dentist manipulates composite materials to perfectly match the variations in color, translucency, and gloss of natural teeth. The formerly chipped tooth looks completely natural, and no one can tell the tooth was ever damaged.
