7 Ways Dental Bonding Can Improve Your Smile In Alexandria

Improve Your Smile With Alexandria Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the Mt. Vernon area, but there are many patients who don’t know exactly what it is or when it is useful to have the procedure done. Today in the Alexandria Dental Blog, we explain 7 ways dental bonding is used in cosmetic dentistry.

The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and tooth-colored. It is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty, and then hardened or set with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

Dentists will usually consider the option of bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.

4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.

6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process, and, since the material is easily shaped, teeth can be made to 7) look longer or just have the general shape changed. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening, when having a smile makeover.
