Cosmetic bonding is a dental procedure for correcting cosmetic flaws and improving the appearance of your smile. Teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or slightly misshapen can be repaired and corrected with cosmetic bonding. Afterward, your smile will be transformed. At Chestnut Dental Associates, Dr. Carl Horchos is your Downingtown, PA general dentist for cosmetic bonding.
Cosmetic bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures for transforming your smile. The procedure is also fairly quick and much less complicated than other types of cosmetic dental procedures. A composite resin material is used to repair minor problems, such as cracks or chips, in teeth. The bonding material can be color matched to your existing teeth so it readily blends in for a completely natural look. The bonding material is applied directly to the problem area of the tooth. As it dries, it permanently bonds with the tooth, becoming part of it.
Cosmetic bonding can be used to correct several different types of imperfections. It can even be used to cover and protect roots that have been exposed due to a receding gum line. The procedure is quick, uncomplicated, and painless. Your Downingtown general dentist can help you decide if cosmetic bonding is the right choice for achieving the smile you desire. Cosmetic bonding can be used to repair and improve the appearance of the following problems:
- Chips and cracks in teeth
- Stains and discolorations on teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
The bonding material can be used to replace the missing portion of a chipped tooth. It can also seal cracks in teeth and prevent them from cracking further. Stains and discolorations can be concealed and irregularly shaped teeth can be reshaped. Cosmetic bonding can even be used to close small gaps between teeth. Cosmetic bonding can give you the smile you desire.
Cosmetic bonding is a practical and an affordable option for correcting cosmetic imperfections in your smile.
