Cosmetic Bonding is a common dental procedure often used for small changes such as improving the appearance of chipped or discolored teeth. A tooth-colored material (resin) is applied to the affected area and then quickly hardened with a special light which "bonds" the material to the natural tooth. The procedure does not take long and can often be accomplished in just one dental visit.
Uses for Cosmetic Bonding
In addition to fixing chipped or discolored teeth, cosmetic dental bonding is also used to:
- Close gaps between teeth
- Change the shape of a tooth or make it appear longer
- Protect the exposed root of a tooth due to gum recession
- As an alternative to amalgam (silver) fillings
