Cosmetic bonding is the process of applying a tooth-colored composite material to improve the appearance of a tooth.
This process improves the aesthetics of your smile while allowing the tooth to maintain a natural appearance. In order to bond a tooth, tooth colored material is added to the tooth to build it up.
What Are the Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding is usually performed in a single visit, giving patients instant results within one procedure. It is a relatively painless procedure. The Champagne Smile dentists use Cosmodent’s Renamel microfill, an award-winning dental material that matches the natural shade and structure of teeth. It is exceedingly durable and resistant to everyday wear and tear.
How Is Cosmetic Bonding Performed?
The dentists begin the procedure by gently applying bonding primer and resin. The bonding material is then carefully applied and sculpted to help patients achieve stunning results. Once the material is shaped to the desired look, a high-intensity curing light is administered to harden the material.
The process may be repeated multiple times until the final shape is achieved. After the final shape is reached, the dentists apply a finish over the composite to prevent damage and tooth sensitivity.
Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Bonding
What is cosmetic bonding used for?
Cosmetic bonding is most commonly used to correct cracked teeth, stains and discoloration, gaps between two teeth, chips, malformed teeth, and teeth that are uneven in size.
How long does teeth bonding last?
Cosmetic bonding can last anywhere from 4 to 8 years, although this can vary from one person to the next. Because of the stress placed when biting, the bonding on a front tooth may not last as long as bonding elsewhere. Oral habits are also important—nail biting and using your teeth as tools can cause damage to your bonding or even break it off. We use Cosmedent Renamel microfill for bonding, which is more durable and resistant to wear than other types of bonding, so it typically lasts longer than other bonding you might have had in the past.
Does bonding ruin your teeth?
Bonding does not ruin your teeth. Your enamel is roughened to allow the bonding agent to adhere to the tooth surface, but your tooth’s overall structure remains intact and unharmed.
Is composite bonding better than veneers?
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are the gold standard since they have the longest lifespan. That said, some patients prefer cosmetic bonding since it is less expensive and requires fewer office visits.
Can front teeth be bonded?
Yes, bonding can give your smile a dramatic makeover if you have a chipped or broken front tooth. Dr. Champagne is an expert cosmetic dentist and takes great care to make sure your bonded front tooth looks completely natural and blends in perfectly with the rest of your smile.
Is tooth bonding worth it?
Yes, tooth bonding is worth it. Cosmetic bonding is a fantastic way to improve the appearance of your smile if porcelain veneers aren’t in your budget or if you’re simply not ready for a more permanent solution.
