Dental bonding is one of the fastest, least invasive and affordable methods available for improving damaged teeth. Similar to porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding can be used to change the size, shape and color of your teeth to improve cosmetic appearance and function. Dr. George Trask, your Monroeville and Norwalk, OH area dentist, offers cosmetic and general dentistry services to help you achieve your healthiest, most attractive smile.
Improve Your Smile with Dental Bonding in Monroeville and Norwalk
Even if you do everything right, like flossing every day and going to the dentist for a check up and professional dental cleaning at least once a year, your teeth are still susceptible to accidents or wear and tear over time. Cosmetic bonding is the perfect solution for small to moderate cosmetic imperfections like chips, cracks, stains and discolorations, uneven teeth, and gaps between teeth (significant spacing or alignment and bite issues may require orthodontics). Cosmetic bonding is also used to seal and fortify a tooth after treatment with root canal therapy or to treat tooth decay.
How Does Cosmetic Bonding Work?
Composite resin (a combination of plastic materials designed to match the color and texture of natural teeth) is bonded directly onto the tooth. Bonded teeth look and function just like your natural teeth, and can last for a while depending on a number of factors like oral hygiene, professional dental care, and avoiding habits that can damage the surface of your teeth, like nail biting or teeth grinding. Bonding is generally considered less permanent than veneers, which are mostly made of porcelain. If you are looking for a quick, affordable and effective solution to common cosmetic problems like chips and stains, bonding may be the right option for you.
