About Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that uses a tooth-colored resin to improve your smile and to hide minor flaws and tooth problems. The resin used is the exact material used to fill a tooth after a cavity; however, dental bonding is a completely non-invasive and painless procedure that won’t require anesthesia, unless a cavity is present.
How Dental Bonding Saves Smiles
Dental bonding is a wonderful option for someone looking to make subtle changes to improve the overall appearance of their smile. Keep in mind that since this is a non-invasive and easy procedure, this is ideal for only minor alterations. More serious dental issues may need to consider other treatments like veneers or orthodontics.
Dental bonding can be used to cover these dental imperfections:
- Small chips or cracks
- Misshapen teeth
- Minor overlapping
- Small gaps between teeth
