How does composite bonding work?

Imperfections of natural teeth can cause patients to feel incredibly self-conscious about their appearance. If you are dealing with problems that impact your smile and confidence, it may be a great time to talk to Dr. Blanca Fernandez and her team at Highland Dental Clinic in South Lakeland, Florida, about the benefits of composite bonding.

What is composite bonding?

Composite bonding, often called dental bonding or teeth bonding, uses a composite resin material to improve the appearance of your teeth. It is a procedure in which a tooth-colored material made from plastic and glass particles is applied to the tooth’s surface, hardened with a curing light, and shaped to resemble your natural teeth. Composite bonding is often done in one appointment and does not require anesthesia like other dental treatments.

What can be achieved using composite teeth bonding?

Composite bonding can be used to:

  • Restore decayed or chipped teeth
  • Fill gaps between teeth
  • Disguise misalignment of natural teeth
  • Lengthen or reshape a natural tooth
  • Treat discolored or stained teeth
  • Change the size of a tooth to match the rest of the smile

How much does composite bonding cost?

Generally, bonding gapped or imperfect teeth is a highly affordable option for many patients. The cost of composite bonding depends on the amount of work needed and if any additional treatments are required. It is often an economical alternative to more expensive cosmetic treatments like veneers or crowns.
