Bonding is a quick, painless and in-office dental procedure that can repair cracks, chips and gaps between teeth. It can also cover stained teeth to enhance your smile, and it is an affordable and beautiful cosmetic alternative to porcelain veneers. Bonding can often be done without anesthesia if there is no decay or exposure of the tooth pulp. The bonding material is developed in many shades, allowing our cosmetic specialists at Westcliffe Family Dental to accurately match the shade of your natural teeth. The composite resin is applied to the tooth, shaped to match your smile, and then set and hardened with a bright light. This process forms a durable, stain-resistant surface that is later smoothed and polished to give it a natural appearance and feel. Your dental bonds will give your smile a vibrant, beautiful shine.
Bonding can be used to:
- Protect exposed roots of teeth
- Repair cracks, unevenness and chips
- Close spaces between your front teeth
- Reshape crooked or misshapen teeth
- Replace old or unattractive silver fillings
- Whiten stained teeth
- Replace missing teeth
- Stabilize loose teeth
Bonded teeth will require frequent visits for maintenance and even replacement over a patient’s lifetime.
