What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is the process of hiding minor imperfections to improve the aesthetics of your smile. An extremely versatile treatment option, cosmetic bonding uses a moldable composite resin, which is placed onto the surface of the tooth and sculpted in place. It is capable of hiding various flaws, including:

The composite resin used for this treatment is the same used when placing tooth-colored fillings. It is matched to your natural tooth color so that it will blend in seamlessly.

Who is a Good Candidate?

When scheduling a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Plano, they will not only discuss your goals but also what problem areas you would like to hide with this type of treatment.

As long as you are in good oral health and present no signs of tooth decay or gum disease, it is highly likely you will be eligible to begin treatment.

What is the Process for Direct Cosmetic Bonding?

The first step in receiving cosmetic bonding is to schedule a consultation with your dentist in Plano. After reviewing your oral and overall health history and performing a thorough examination of your smile, the two of you will discuss the problem areas of your teeth you would like to hide.

Next, we will use a shade guide to determine the appropriate color of the composite resin so that it matches the rest of your smile and blends in to create a natural look. Once the color is established, our team will begin by roughening the teeth that will undergo cosmetic bonding. This will allow the resin to properly adhere to the surface of the teeth when placed.

After your cosmetic dentist has placed the composite resin onto the enamel of your teeth, they will begin to sculpt and shape it in place. Effectively covering the imperfections, they will use a special curing light to harden the resin.

Finishing the treatment with a final polish, you will have a brand-new smile when you leave our office.
