Dental Bonding May Be the Answer to Your Dental Discoloration

Posted on 4/20/2019 by Matt Aldridge DDS
Dental Bonding May Be the Answer to Your Dental DiscolorationYou may have heard of dental bonding as a way to treat teeth that are cracked, chipped, or broken, but did you know that bonding is also useful for discolored teeth?

It's true – dental bonding uses composite resin in order to fix minor imperfections, and it can also give your smile a whiter and brighter appearance. Read on to learn more about this simple restoration.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a type of cosmetic dentistry treatment, and it uses a tooth-colored composite resin material. Using a color guide, we can pick the shade that is right for your teeth. Whether you want your teeth to look a bit whiter or simply want to match the present shade, we can bond your teeth to look beautiful and natural. It can also cover up stains and discolorations.

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

The first thing that we do during dental bonding is roughen up the surface of the teeth. This will help the bonding material to stay in place. The composite resin is similar to putty, and it is placed onto the teeth before being shaped and sculpted. We then use a special blue light to harden the material, and once complete, we will shape and polish it.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding offers a wealth of wonderful benefits besides covering up discolorations. It is fairly inexpensive when compared to other restorations, and it can usually be completed in only one office visit. For the most part, we won't need any anesthesia to complete your dental bonding, so it is a very comfortable procedure.

If you have discolored teeth or are living with another imperfection, we can help. Contact us today to find out if dental bonding might be right for you and set up an evaluation.
