What is Tooth Bonding?

Patients will be happy to know that tooth bonding is the easiest and least expensive dental treatment today. It is used in the field of cosmetic dentistry to correct aesthetic issues and perfect the look of the teeth.

Our cosmetic dentists in Houston will recommend dental bonding for several reasons. It can be used to change the shape of the teeth, such as to make them longer or wider. Bonding can also be used cover damage, such as dips and crevices in dental enamel, as well as cracks and chips. It is also a great way to fill in spaces between teeth without utilizing an orthodontic appliance. Teeth that feature intrinsic stains can be covered with dental bonding when teeth whitening treatment won’t be effective.

The dental bonding material is a composite resin that matches the color of dental enamel. Our expert in tooth bonding in Houston molds and shapes it in order to fill in space properly and flush. After it is in place, they polish it to match the natural sheen of the teeth.

After your teeth are perfected with tooth bonding, it is best to avoid smoking, as well as staining foods and drinks, as composite resin can become discolored.
