Composite dental bonding is often considered to be one of the easiest and least invasive ways to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry. Bonding is used to easily repair chips, decay, fractured teeth, and discoloration. An added benefit is that our South Florida doctors can usually apply composite bonding in a single appointment!
What Is Dental Bonding?
Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored material using dental adhesives and a special light. The materials are bonded to the tooth and this procedure is most often used to help improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth.
Dental bonding can also be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer, or to change the shape of a tooth. Dentists often use composite tooth bonding procedures as an alternative to amalgam fillings or to protect a tooth’s root that has been exposed due to gum recession.
Is Bonding The Right Choice For Your Smile?
This procedure generally takes little to no preparation, often not even requiring an anesthetic! One of our South Florida doctors will work with you to determine the best shade of bonding to use to reveal your best smile.
Most patients are ideal candidates for this type of dental bonding. You will likely be a candidate for composite dental bonding if you have teeth that are:
- Discolored or stained
- Not the right length
- Have gaps in your smile
- Have dental bridge facings that are worn or broken
