Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure, but many patients who don’t know exactly what it is. In this blog post from The Sugar House Dentist in Salt Lake City, we explain 7 ways dental bonding leave you with a beautiful smile.
The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and tooth-colored. It is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty, and then hardened or set with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.
We will usually consider the option of bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.
4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.
6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process, and, since the material is easily shaped, teeth can be made to 7) look longer or just have the general shape changed. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening as part of a total smile makeover.
Your smile can be one of your most valuable assets. The structure and appearance of your teeth, along with the lips, allows you to convey a range of emotions, and is a factor in how you get along in society.
