Cosmetic Bonding Corrects Imperfect Teeth
With cosmetic bonding we can help conceal severe stains, chips, overlapping and uneven teeth by creating custom-made, hand-crafted, tooth-colored composite that contour seamlessly to the front surfaces of your teeth.
Unlike veneers, the composite is applied directly to the tooth and cured to its final hardness using a laser. In order to help the composite bond to the tooth, the tooth is prepared by lightly buffing the area to be repaired, which usually doesn't require anesthetic.
Advantages of Cosmetic Bonding:
- Permits your dentist to remove only the decayed area of your tooth
- Composite bonding expand just like your teeth and are much less likely to cause cracks in your tooth.
- Composites bond directly to the tooth providing support
- Can be used to fill in cracks, chips and gaps – and will match the color of your other teeth.
