An artistic processCosmetic (or Tooth) bonding offers an artistic process for restoring or improving your smile. The composite resin can be blended to mimic the color and translucency of the tooth or improve the appearance of discolored teeth. While the process is suggested for small area corrections or replacements it is also recommended for closing the spaces between teeth, changing the shape of teeth or filling cavities.
The bonding is applied directly to the tooth and hardened with a special light which bonds the material to the tooth. During this process a mild etching solution is applied to teeth, creating a rough surface which allows the composite material to adhere to teeth. Therefore, cosmetic bonding is a good solution for repairing back teeth as well as improving front teeth.
Frequently this process can be completed in one office visit unless several teeth are involved. Undeniably, cosmetic bonding is one of the most versatile and affordable ways to restore problem teeth and aesthetically improve your smile.
