Cosmetic bonding is a revolutionary dental procedure that is used to repair teeth. This dental treatment can even be used to reshape teeth, including lengthening them. Most dental patients love the way their teeth look after cosmetic bonding.
Cosmetic bonding is essentially the application of liquid resins to the teeth. These composite resins can be shaped and polished to one or teeth, as needed. The treatment is completely safe and is routinely used to improve the appearance of discolored teeth, chipped teeth, or to close spaces or gaps between teeth.
What Is The Cosmetic Bonding Procedure?
You should know that the cosmetic bonding treatment is a completely painless and comfortable procedure. In the vast majority of cases, no sedative or anesthesia is needed for this dental treatment. Plus, the entire treatment takes only a very short time to complete.
First, a shade guide is used to select the color you would like your teeth to be. Usually, it’s best to choose a shade that matches the rest of your teeth. Next, the tooth is coated with a conditioning liquid to help the bonding resin to adhere. After that, a resin is applied to the tooth and molded to the perfect shape that will either hide the imperfection or achieve the final desired result.
Finally, a special light is shone over the bonding resin. This hardens the resin so that it becomes a permanent fixture. After the resin is completely hardened into place, the dentist will perform further and shaping and polishing to ensure that the tooth looks perfect. And that’s it! Now you’re ready to show the world your perfect smile!
Who Should Get Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding can be done for anybody with damaged permanent teeth. If you have a chipped or broken tooth, cosmetic bonding may be the perfect solution to fill in or repair the tooth so that it looks undamaged.
