How dental composite bonding can enhance the smile

Dental composite bonding is a treatment typically used as an alternative to veneers and is a restorative procedure for natural teeth that are cracked, chipped, discolored, or misaligned. The composite resin used in our teeth bonding is a natural-looking material that is made to match the patient’s other teeth to integrate into the smile seamlessly. We are pleased to offer this and other cosmetic services at Leah Zils, DDS of The Woodlands, Texas.

What are the benefits of composite dental bonding?

  • Fast. Dental bonding is completed in a single visit, unlike other solutions, such as veneers, which require at least two appointments from preparation to placement.
  • Affordable. Composite dental bonding for gaps or chipped teeth is an affordable solution.
  • Natural-looking. The composite resin used in bonding is customizable to match the patient’s natural teeth, resulting in a seamless and natural-looking smile.
  • Durable. Bonding typically can last for several years with proper care, making it a solution for minor cosmetic issues.
  • Reversible. Unlike other restorative treatments such as veneers or crowns, bonding is reversible and can be removed if desired.
  • Low risk. Bonding involves minimal removal of the natural tooth enamel, making it a low-risk procedure for preserving the tooth’s overall health.
  • Minimal maintenance. Bonding requires some maintenance due to staining that occurs over time and repairs needed from chipping. Staining can be removed with polishing procedures. Depending on the severity of the chip, sometimes it can be patched or it might have to be completely redone. 

What can I expect when obtaining cosmetic dental bonding?

To prepare your tooth, we do a blending technique that involves slight etching of the tooth and application of different agents to prepare the tooth to hold the filling. The resin filling is hand sculpted to match the natural anatomy of the missing tooth structure. After the resin has cured, we will sculpt and polish the tooth again to bring it to a lustrous and natural shape and shine. In one simple visit, bonding can significantly improve a tooth’s appearance.
