Dental Bonding Overview- Cosmetic bonding is the application of tooth-colored resin using a light, which bonds the resin materials to the teeth to improve a patient's smile. Bonding is used to conceal flaws such as chips, cracks, and imperfections in the size or shape of the teeth. Bonding is also used to close gaps or spaces between teeth and improve the appearance of stained teeth. 

The Benefits of Bonding- Your dentist can use cosmetic bonding to improve the appearance of your smile in just one office visit. Very little tooth enamel is removed with the cosmetic bonding procedure, which gives it an advantage over options like dental crowns and veneers.

Candidates For Bonding- If you are in good oral health, you may be a viable candidate for cosmetic bonding. This procedure is not an appropriate treatment for you if you have oral health problems that require treatment. Once these problems have been treated, then your candidacy for cosmetic bonding may be reassessed. Consult with your dentist to find out if cosmetic bonding is right for you.

Your dentist will discuss the cosmetic problems that cosmetic bonding can fix. Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination and evaluation of your teeth and gums. Your dentist will also discuss if you are a candidate for the dental issues that bonding can correct.
