Tooth Bonding Is a Quick Fix for Your Smile
When we talk about cosmetic dentistry, probably the easiest and quickest way to provide that to a patient is through bonding. And what bonding is is when we take a tooth-colored filling material and basically bond it to the surface of the tooth. The way we do that is really, really requires very little prep on the tooth side, but we’re able to go in and bond a thin layer over the tooth to maybe change the shade of the tooth or bond a little bit of material here, there, to straighten the tooth out or to maybe add tooth surface if a tooth doesn’t really touch another tooth in the front, maybe needs to kind of close those gaps. Oftentimes we do bonding to do that. It’s less expensive than a typical veneer would be and also less invasive to the tooth. And so relatively quickly and easily and really affordably, we’re able to take bonding and change smiles for patients and appearances that way.
