WHAT IS TOOTH BONDING? Sometimes all it takes is a chipped, slightly misaligned or otherwise imperfect tooth to get in the way of a great smile. One-appointment tooth bonding is a simple procedure that can help transform those flaws into works of art! During the dental bonding process, we apply a liquid composite resin, shaded to blend with your tooth’s color. That resin will be the foundation for the rebuilding of the shape of your tooth. A curing light is used to harden the resin, which is then sculpted and polished to perfection. Cosmetic dental bonding can be a viable and affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, although without the long life of veneers. With proper care, one-appointment bonding can be expected to last many years. Since bonding will not discolor as your normal tooth enamel will, touch-up teeth whitening or replacement may be required to keep your natural teeth the same shade as the bonded area. There are many paths to a perfect smile, and cosmetic bonding is just one of the ways that Dr. Caffaratti can help you discover yours! Together we can create a smile that reflects your lifestyle.
