Cosmetic Bonding

Think of cosmetic bonding materials like you would sculptor’s clay. Using dental composite resin bonding, Dental Dimensions can reshape or recolor your smile

The cosmetic bonding process utilizes a tooth-colored composite resin plastic that is applied to the tooth surface and hardened with a special curing light. A bonding agent holds the composite resin material in place. The resin-bonding material is trimmed, shaped and polished to look like a natural tooth.

Dental bonding materials can return your teeth to their original appearance. They often are used to fill and restore small areas that have had decay removed, smooth chipped edges of teeth and eliminate small spaces between teeth.

The bonding process is fast — it’s normally completed in one visit — and painless, whether done on a single tooth or an area involving multiple teeth. Resin composite materials are mercury-free. They come in a variety of shades to closely match your own teeth.

Although primarily used for cosmetic purposes, bonding sometimes serves as an alternative to more extensive tooth restoration methods, such as implants, veneers or crowns.
