Cosmetic tooth bonding is a painless and non-invasive method of improving your smile. Bonding involves applying a special tooth-colored material known as a composite resin to an area of your tooth or teeth to correct a cosmetic imperfection. Many of our patients seeking a Palm Beach Gardens cosmetic dentist utilize cosmetic tooth bonding as a means to improve their smiles.
Examples of enhancements cosmetic bonding can provide include:
- chipped teeth
- cracked teeth
- gapped teeth
- teeth that are unusually shaped
- too-short teeth
Cosmetic tooth bonding is a way to take a tooth that may have a small imperfection and shape it to improve your overall smile. While this bonding approach is an excellent method to improve your smile, not every patient is a candidate for this approach.
For example, your teeth must be in overall excellent condition. This is because cosmetic bonding is not a restorative dentistry procedure intended to improve your tooth’s functioning. If you require restorative dentistry procedures, such as fillings, these should be performed prior to cosmetic bonding.
In addition to this consideration, tooth bonding should be used only for teeth that have minor cosmetic imperfections. Bonding is an alternative to dental crowns or veneers that require fewer interventions. However, bonding is not suitable for major dental imperfections. Instead, it should be used only for minor chips and cracks. Learn more about veneers.
