Dental bonding in Centennial, CO, is a budget-friendly and noninvasive way to conceal tooth imperfections. Additionally, you can typically complete treatment during one dental visit.
How Does Dental Bonding Work?
Dental bonding is made of a malleable composite resin—the same resin used in tooth-colored fillings. Your dentist can smooth this material over tooth imperfections and sculpt away abnormalities to improve your smile. When the resin is in place, your dentist sets it with a special light.
Dental bonding can conceal many types of flaws, including:
- Tooth discoloration and staining
- Tooth chips and cracks
- Abnormally shaped teeth
- Small gaps between teeth
Following your initial consultation, your dentist will let you know whether dental bonding will work to conceal your tooth flaws. You can bond one tooth or several, depending on your goals.
After bonding, you’re free to resume your day, and a member of our team can provide tips to keep your newly bonded smile looking its best. As a rule, you’ll want to reduce tooth-staining foods and drinks or be sure to clean your mouth after indulging. Over time—and without good habits—bonding material can stain just like tooth enamel.
