Cosmetic Dental Uses for Dental Bonding

Dental BondingDental bonding can solve a variety of aesthetic problems with teeth. Dental bonding is an incredibly convenient solution in cosmetic dentistry and is wildly popular for its ability to improve the appearance or functionality of teeth in just one appointment. Anyone who is considering improving their smile needs to learn about bonding as a viable alternative to more invasive and costly procedures like dental crowns or veneers.

Some of the cosmetic applications for bonding material are:

#1. Covering dark stains on teeth

While teeth whitening is very popular and can be effective, there are some stains that we simply cannot remove with whitening alone. This tends to be true for people who have internal staining from taking long-term medications, smokers or those who chew tobacco.

Some of the stains are simply too deep or severe for us to completely remove with a whitening procedure. In this situation, the best thing to do is whiten teeth and then cover any remaining stained teeth using a composite resin that matches the shade of the surrounding teeth.

#2. Changing the shape or size of teeth

When one tooth is particularly short or does not match the others, it can be necessary to change the shape or size using a cosmetic dentistry solution. We can place dental veneers on top of the tooth or a crown can surround it - two highly popular solutions.

However, the faster way is to place bonding material on the surface of the tooth. We can shape this composite resin to make the tooth the exact size it needs to be in order to blend in with the surrounding ones.

#3. Close gaps in between teeth

Anyone who has small gaps between teeth may be considering orthodontics to improve their smile. This is an excellent solution but it can take up to two years to complete the process. This is a long time for someone to spend wearing braces only to close a few gaps.

Instead, it is much faster to use bonding material to change the shape of the teeth in order to close them. By adding only millimeters of composite resin, we can close gaps and improve a smile. Completing the procedure in a single appointment, dental bonding is non-invasive and affordable, making it highly popular.

There are many cosmetic benefits to dental bonding

The main benefit of dental bonding for cosmetic treatment is that the process can be completed immediately. For someone who has an important event coming up like a wedding, job interview or family reunion, this makes it possible to see the improvements prior to that event.

Primarily, people choose dental bonding because it is fast and takes a single visit. It does not require us to remove enamel from the tooth and is, therefore, non-invasive. Finally, it is more affordable than other cosmetic solutions, making it more likely to fit the budget.
