Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is a procedure that utilizes a composite resin for cosmetic enhancement and restoration of decayed teeth. The composite consists of glass and porcelain particles fused into a liquid plastic that are carefully matched up by your cosmetic dentist according to the color of your teeth. Because the bonded tooth blends well with the surrounding teeth, it will give a more natural look. After the composite is applied and adjusted to the tooth, it is hardened with the use of a high intensity light. It is then buffered and polished to smooth out any rough surfaces.

Since bonding is so versatile, your cosmetic dentist can use it in a wide array of situations. As an alternative to silver amalgam, patients can smile confidently with bonding versus with a mouth full of silver fillings. In addition, bonding can replace the void left behind from a chip, crack, or any gap in the teeth. If a patient is unsatisfied with the length, color, or shape of their teeth, bonding can be applied by our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Roshan, to adjust their teeth to a level that will be satisfactory to their desires. All these minor imperfections can be readily masked with bonding treatment.
