One of the fastest and easiest ways to make cosmetic improvements to a person’s smile is through composite bonding. This treatment involves using tooth-colored resin to enhance the appearance of a tooth or teeth.
There are many useful applications for this versatile and effective treatment. Cosmetic bonding can be used to reduce gaps, repair chips, and for making their teeth appear more even in length. And since the color of the resin can be adjusted, many of our patients use composite bonding treatments to enhance the shading of their teeth. Composite bonding can also be used to correct various dental problems, such as cavities, minor tooth decay, cracked teeth and exposed tooth roots.
There are many benefits to composite bonding. For one, the treatment is incredibly simple, and it can usually be completed in just one visit to our practice. Another benefit of composite bonding is that it is virtually painless, and best of all, the results of composite bonding will be visible as soon as the treatment is complete. When providing composite bonding treatment, we start by removing any decay, deterioration or existing bonding material.
Next, the composite resin will be applied in multiple thin layers. Each layer will be applied individually and hardened using a dental curing light before the next layer is applied. This will continue until the teeth reach the desired level of thickness. We select the shade and color of the resin carefully to give the patient’s teeth a healthy and natural appearance. After the resin has hardened, we will buff and polish the teeth, so they achieve a proper look.
