If you are looking for a straightforward way of transforming your smile, you may find your answer in cosmetic bonding. Tooth bonding is a process of applying a composite resin to one or more teeth that have become discolored or physically damaged. At Twin Dental, we can accomplish multiple goals through bonding, such as closing spaces between teeth, lengthening small teeth, altering misshapen teeth, and whitening stained or dark teeth. When teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, bonding can protect them from damage and restore their original look. The process can refine the shape and color of a single tooth or your entire smile.
Bonding has a significant advantage over other traditional restorations. This is the ability to be applied directly to the tooth, resulting in assimilation with the natural structure. The cosmetic bonding procedure is fairly simple and quick, requiring only one visit to our Cincinnati office. First, we roughen and prepare the teeth. We then apply a conditioning gel before placing the resin. The resin is malleable and able to be sculpted to the desired shape. Finally, it is hardened with a harmless, high-intensity light. Final bonded restorations are very strong, with an expected life of ten years. It is imperative you take proper care of your teeth by avoiding hard candy, ice cubes, and similar substances that can crack the composite material.
Bonding consistently accounts for significant smile improvements among our patients. To achieve a beautiful, natural result too, get in touch with us today.
