What Is Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding is a treatment that utilizes the tooth-colored composite resin—the same material used for dental fillings. This special blend of plastics is not only durable, but it mimics the look and feel of your natural teeth. We can place this material on a tooth and sculpt it to reshape or restore it back to its full beauty. Once the tooth-colored resin is on your smile, we use a special lamp to bond it to your teeth. During the last step, we’ll polish the area to match the rest of your natural smile. All of this can be done in about an hour, and it’s one of the most popular cosmetic services we have to offer.

After getting cosmetic bonding, make sure to brush and floss your teeth daily to remove plaque and bacteria from your smile. You should also use a soft-bristled, non-abrasive toothbrush to avoid damaging the bonding material. Additionally, avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing and speaking. Lastly, wear a mouthguard during sports or physical activity to protect your newly enhanced grin.
