At Allen Park Dental Care, our cosmetic dentistry toolkit is filled with useful tools for fixing most types of cosmetic tooth issues. In the past few years, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and same-day teeth whitening have attracted a lot of attention. In today’s post, we are going to talk about an effective, yet relatively uncelebrated dental treatment that has been used successfully for decades. We’re talking about dental bonding.
The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and natural looking. It is applied to the teeth while soft and putty-like, and then hardened (or cured) with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.
Dentists use bonding to correct tooth troubles caused by decay, chips, or cracks. Large spaces between healthy teeth can be filled with bonding material, and bonding can safeguard tooth roots if the gums have receded.
Discolored teeth can also be lightened with bonding. Since bonding material is easily molded, teeth can be lengthened or re-shaped to more pleasing proportions. Bonding is generally used as part of a total smile redesign.
