Dental Bonding: The Building Blocks

What is dental bonding?” you may wonder to yourself as you’re learning a bit about the cosmetic dentistry treatments we offer. In a nutshell, it’s a treatment that gives us the opportunity to make your smile appear much prettier by fixing problems that require additional dental tissue. If you have never really heard of bonding before, you may feel like you’d still like some further details. To get you started, we’d like to begin at the beginning with the essential building blocks.

It’s Additive

When you’re just learning about dental bonding, you simply need to remember that it’s an additive procedure. When we say this, we mean that it’s a cosmetic treatment that allows you to add to your smile, rather than take away. With the use of a material that we can easily sculpt, areas that need more tissue or that need coverage can become beautiful and may work in harmony with the rest of your grin.

We Use Composite

About that material we use: It’s called composite. We can use it like a sculpting medium or like paint. It all depends on your needs. Patients are also pleased to learn that we will carefully select and customize the shade of the material, as well. If you need it to match your tissue, we will make it happen. If you are interested in using it to whiten your teeth, we will choose a beautiful shade with you.

The Things We Can Fix

As mentioned, dental bonding is additive. As a result, it can help us fix:

  • Spaces that are in between teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Chips
  • Tiny cracks in enamel
  • Stains
  • Problematic texture
