If you have some minor imperfections in your teeth that keep you from smiling, tooth bonding can be an easy and affordable option.
Although teeth bonding can refer to adhering porcelain restorations to your natural tooth (ex. porcelain inlays or veneers), dental bonding is also a dental treatment where a composite resin is applied to the surface of your tooth to cosmetically improve it. Dental bonding can be used to treat both the front and back teeth and comes in many shades so it can precisely match your natural tooth color. Dental bonding can also be done on multiple tooth structures, depending on the nature of the repair and recommendation.
How Dental Bonding Works
Once the surface is prepared, the tooth-colored, putty-like composite material is applied, molded and shaped. Then, a special light or laser cures/hardens the material. After it hardens, your Summerlin dentist may further trim and shape the material, then polish it to match the rest of the tooth surface.
Tooth Bonding: An Artistic Solution To Repair Various Problems
