Dental bonding is a quick, easy and painless solution to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. This process does not always last as long as porcelain crowns or veneers, but may be the right solution for your smile.
Depending on what issues there are with your current smile, bonding may be your best solution. Typically bonding can help if you have cracked, chipped, discolored or broken teeth.
Bonding is achieved by your dental professional by applying a thin plastic material on the front surface of your teeth, and then applying a composite resin, (the bonding material.) Your cosmetic dentist will then shape, sculpt and color the material to create an individual smile that is perfect for you. This process requires a large amount of precision and a skill from the dental professional. However, if the process is implemented correctly, the bonded teeth will look identical to your other teeth, creating the perfect smile of your dreams. The teeth should look completely normal in your mouth, and not fake. Our dental professionals have expertise in creating the perfect fit for your mouth, as well as very keen eyes to understand what would be best for your individual needs.
