A cosmetic dentist’s toolkit is filled with handy tools for fixing most types of cosmetic tooth troubles. In the past few years, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and same-day teeth whitening have garnered a lot of publicity. In this post from Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, we are going to talk about an effective treatment that has been used successfully for decades, dental bonding.
The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and natural looking. It is applied to the teeth while soft and putty-like, and then hardened (or cured) with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.
Dentists use bonding to fix tooth problems caused by decay, chips, or cracks. Large spaces between healthy teeth can be filled with bonding material, and bonding can guard tooth roots if the gums have receded.
Discolored teeth can also be lightened with bonding. Since bonding material is easily molded, teeth can be lengthened or re-shaped to more pleasing proportions. Bonding is usually used as part of a total cosmetic dental smile makeover.
