Advancements in modern dentistry have made it possible to improve smiles with minimally invasive techniques. One of these advancements is cosmetic bonding. Bonding is the application of a resin material to the tooth surface. Bonding can be used to close spaces between teeth, repair chips, lengthen teeth, change the shape of teeth, and to change the color of teeth. Cosmetic bonding is completed in one appointment and usually does not require local anesthesia. The dentist will first clean the tooth. Then, the composite resin will be applied and molded. A light will be used to harden the material, which will then be shaped and polished. Cosmetic bonding is an inexpensive and simple way to improve your smile. Schedule an appointment with one of our talented cosmetic dentists at Metropolitan Dental Care to see if cosmetic bonding can enhance your smile!
