The results of composite bonding are immediate and often dramatic. Tooth bonding, also known as direct composite, is one of the most popular and predictable forms of cosmetic dentistry we provide. Utilizing state-of-the-art materials that are carefully matched for proper color and strength, we can dramatically change the appearance of chipped, worn or discolored teeth.
Composite bonding is a tooth colored material chosen to match the unique color and shade or your teeth. Our prosthodontists have developed a keen aesthetic eye through extensive training. This ensures that patients’ treated teeth are virtually indistinguishable from their surrounding natural teeth. The procedure for bonding is simple and generally performed without the use of anesthesia.
The lifetime of composite bonding is 8-10 years. Lifestyle choices such as drinking, smoking or over use can affect the lifespan of your teeth with composite bonding.
Restore Chipped or Damaged Teeth
It only takes a small chip on a front tooth to make your smile less than appealing. A dental crown may be overkill when the chip is very small. Dental bonding can restore your tooth back to its natural shape and appearance quickly and easily.
Not only will your tooth look like new again, but the repaired area will also feel like your natural tooth. A small chip may go ignored. However, it may also leave your tooth more vulnerable to decay. This is since a portion of the tooth enamel is missing, leaving the softer dentin closer to the surface of the tooth. Repairing the chip with dental bonding provides you with a tooth restored to its natural look. It also protects the area from being compromised by decay.
Correct Minor Flaws
Dental bonding provides a method for correcting minor flaws without impacting your tooth or teeth in a major way. If you have a badly discolored tooth, dental bonding may be all that is required to change the color to match the surrounding teeth. Tiny gaps between teeth may be filled in by bonding.
