Dental bonding is a popular and affordable way to address imperfections of teeth. When teeth are chipped, cracked, misaligned, or permanently stained, bonding can be used to cover and disguise these concerns and improve the appearance of the smile.
This treatment is very versatile. The bonding material is similar to clay and is shaped to the teeth, hardened with a special light, and then polished to blend in seamlessly. This bonding is done with a composite material that is safe and is used as a filling material. Many patients prefer dental bonding fillings to traditional silver amalgam fillings due to the cosmetic benefits. Bonding can even be used to fill in spaces between teeth to improve the overall appearance of the smile. The material is made to match the shade of the existing teeth to blend in and look beautiful!
Dr. Kotecha and her associates enjoy using dental bonding for patients who are on a tight budget but want to maintain a beautiful smile. However, they do not recommend bonding as a long-term solution. Bonding material does not last as long as other cosmetic treatments such asporcelain veneers, and is more susceptible to staining and breakage. Although more affordable than others, it is not recommended in all situations. Patients considering dental bonding versus other cosmetic restorations should schedule a consultation appointment at Dentistry On 10 to determine which solution is best for their unique concerns.
