An alternative to ceramic veneers, cosmetic dental bonding is a procedure used to improve the appearance of teeth that have been chipped, cracked, misaligned, or discolored. It involves bonding a special material directly onto the tooth’s structure, and sculpting and polishing it to repair your tooth’s imperfections.
Types of Materials Used in Dental Bonding
Dental bonding can be performed using materials such as porcelain or composite resins that will create a new structure for your tooth. These materials have the ability to mimic the shade of your natural teeth, and remain malleable before the hardening process so we can easily shape them to fit your tooth and your bite.
Benefits of Dental Bonding Include:
- A non-invasive method of tooth restoration
- Requires little to no tooth preparation
- Repairs chipped, cracked, misaligned, and discolored teeth
- The dental material used matches your natural tooth color
During your personal consultation with Dr. Sharel Sly, she will help you determine which materials and shades with benefit your smile the most so that you can enjoy gorgeous teeth that look fully natural.
