Hand Crafting Beautiful Smiles
Cosmetic bonding or aesthetic bonding is often used for patients who have fractured or cracked a tooth as a temporary solution until their teeth are ready for a more permanent solution. Similar to veneers, cosmetic bonding can also be used to help patients achieve the shape and color of a gorgeous smile.
What is cosmetic bonding?
Bonding is a process in which an enamel-like dental composite material is applied to a tooth’s surface, sculpted into shape, hardened, and then polished. Bonding is recommended when the repair is too small for a filling to correct and a crown would be excessive.
Do you have a cracked or broken tooth? Dr. Wood is proud to help patients regain smile confidence again with bonding. To achieve your desired look, Dr. Wood hand shapes and contours the composite resin to your tooth. The final result is a tooth that looks natural and blends perfectly with your other teeth. It will look and feel just like it did before the chip or fracture and match the shade and contour of the adjacent teeth to restore your natural smile.
Cosmetic Bonding Procedure
The cosmetic bonding procedure is non-invasive and most often pain-free. It can be completed in one office visit and is sure to have you leaving with a big confident smile on your face. It is important to know composite bonding is not a permanent solution, for patients seeking a more permanent solution, Dr. Wood recommends porcelain veneers.
