What Does Cosmetic Bonding Do?

Restorative dentist in Worcester MAYou don’t need complicated or expensive cosmetic dental treatments to improve your smile. In fact, just one minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment can transform your teeth into an enhanced version of your smile. Cosmetic dental bonding can repair damage or defects in the teeth in just one office visit. Worcester, MA dental practice Russell Street Dental Associates offers cosmetic bonding to quickly and effectively improve patients’ smiles.

What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

In cosmetic dental bonding, a soft composite resin is used to repair damage or defects in the teeth, resulting in a smoother, brighter, and straighter smile in just one office visit. Composite resin is applied to chips or indentations in the teeth and then hardened with a special light to reshape your smile.

Once the composite resin bonds to the teeth, it will look and feel just like natural tooth enamel. The resin matches your natural tooth’s color so the bonded area does not stand out. The result is an upgraded version of your natural look.

When is Dental Bonding Necessary?

Change A Tooth’s Appearance

Sometimes, we have one or two teeth that stand out and we want them all to look alike. Cosmetic bonding can rebalance your smile by reshaping or brightening a discolored, twisted, crooked, or oddly shaped tooth. Bonding does not negatively affect the health of your teeth, so these otherwise healthy teeth can be safely modified to improve your appearance.

Cover Exposed Tooth Roots

Exposed tooth roots as a result of receding gums may benefit from dental bonding because it can cover the roots and prevent sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures. Bonding eliminates the need for more complicated dental procedures if your dentist determines you can benefit from this treatment.

Filling Gaps Between Teeth

Dental bonding can also fill in minor gaps between teeth, making eating easier and preventing food from getting stuck between teeth. While bonding does not have the longevity of porcelain veneers, this treatment can still last up to 10 years or more if properly cared for. Avoiding ice cubes, hard, or sticky foods is important to keeping your new smile intact.
