For a quick fix of unsightly flaws, consider dental bonding, sometimes referred to as composite bonding or teeth bonding. Dental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored material to the tooth and shaping it in order to make corrections to the appearance of your smile. Dental bonding is ideal for small changes, such as repairing chipped teeth, closing gaps and spaces, improving discoloration, and changing the length or shape of a tooth.
Dental bonding is a simple, non-invasive treatment that generally only takes one visit to our dentist to complete. Dr. Christina Sehy VerSchave cleans the tooth and applies a bonding liquid that will help the restorative material bond to the tooth. The material, generally composite resin, is then applied and sculpted. Once your tooth looks beautiful and is shaped properly, it is cured (hardened) with a light. Dental bonding is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, but it can last for many years when combined with good dental hygiene habits.
