Tooth bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin material using adhesives and a high intensity curing light. It is a popular technique because it offers immediate and long-lasting results. The procedure gets its name because materials are bonded to the tooth. Frequently bonding is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede.
Bonding is typically used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It is also used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth. Recent advances in materials coupled with advances in techniques result in cosmetic bonding becoming more effective and popular than ever before. In the hands of an experienced cosmetic dentist, like Dr. Kris Bomstad and Dr. Tami Karban, you can get fast results and a natural-looking smile.
