What Is Cosmetic Bonding?

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

Have you been looking for solutions to improve the appearance of your smile? If so, you may want to consider cosmetic bonding. Artfully crafted by your trusted team at High Street Dentistry, your new restorations will deliver results that are truly outstanding. Imagine achieving the smile of your dreams in as little as one appointment!

Cosmetic Bonding Overview

Bonding is an innovative cosmetic dentistry solution that involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material to the surfaces of teeth to repair imperfections and instantly deliver a perfect smile. It is an excellent option for patients with stained, discolored, misshaped, chipped, broken, cracked, or worn teeth. It is also used to repair decayed teeth, protect exposed teeth roots, change a tooth’s shape or length, or close gaps between teeth.

Bonding is painless, and in most cases, does not require the use of local anesthesia. The cost of bonding is a lot more affordable and less invasive than dental crowns or veneers, while offering similar aesthetic results. The procedure requires little preparation and can usually be completed in less than an hour.

What Is the Procedure?

We will start by matching the color of the composite resin to your natural teeth. We will apply a conditioning liquid to roughen the surfaces of your tooth enamel to allow the material to bond to your teeth. Next, we will apply the putty-like resin and carefully sculpt it to the desired shape, then will use a curing light to harden it. Be prepared to be amazed at the stunning, natural-looking results!

Caring for Your Bonded Teeth

You will need to care for bonded teeth just like you would for your natural teeth. Brush twice daily using fluoride toothpaste and floss daily. Make sure to schedule your dental exams and cleanings twice a year to keep your teeth and restorations clean and healthy. It’s important that you refrain from chewing on hard objects or using your teeth as tools to prevent chipping or damaging the cosmetic bonding material. With proper care, your restorations can last up to a decade!
