Tooth bonding or dental bonding uses a special tooth-colored resin which is applied to the tooth then hardened using a special light. This bonds the resin to the tooth either to restore it or to improve the appearance of the tooth.
Dental bonding can be considered to repair decayed, chipped, or cracked teeth. If you want to improve the appearance of discolored teeth dental bonding is an option to consider. Dental bonding is also used to close spaces between teeth, make teeth look longer, and can change the overall shape of a tooth. Dental bonding can be used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings and protect a portion of the tooth’s root that may have been exposed when gums recede. Dental bonding is a good option for many dental issues. Call All Smilez Dentistry today to see if dental bonding can help you bring back your beautiful smile and restore your confidence.
Dental bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. Unlike veneers and crowns, which are customized tooth coverings that must be manufactured in a laboratory, dental bonding usually can be done in one clinic visit unless several teeth are involved. Another advantage is that the least amount of tooth enamel is removed during dental bonding. Also, unless dental bonding is being performed to fill a cavity, anesthesia is usually not required.
The aesthetic improvements in dental bonding can give a boost to the confidence of the patient. As a consequence patients often report smiling much more often than before treatment. If you want to smile more, call All Smilez Dentistry today to schedule a consultation.
