Cosmetic tooth bonding is a quick and easy treatment for patients who have minor cosmetic and functional issues. Dr. Amy Marckese-Braun can complete cosmetic tooth bonding procedures in a single office visit.
Dental boding uses a tooth-colored, biocompatible composite resin to hide flaws in the teeth. The resin is applied by the dentist directly to the tooth and sculpted into the proper shape and form, then cured using a special light.
Composite dental bonding is commonly used to treat:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Discolored tooth structure
Dr. Marckese-Braun uses composite dental bonding as a conservative treatment for patients. The process is very similar to a resin dental filling. Composite bonding does not remove any of the tooth’s natural structure as happens in porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
While dental composites are extremely durable, they are not permanent and may need to be retouched or replaced in the future. Porcelain restorations such as dental crowns or porcelain veneers are permanent and much longer lasting. Dental composites may also be more susceptible to staining from foods and beverages, so special care should be taken to ensure long term success.
