Using tooth bonding to fix chipped, gapped, or misshapen teeth

Patients considering dental bonding often have a lot of questions about the best way to use it. What is it? How is it used? Is it right for me? What are the goals of dental bonding? Here, we will answer a few of those questions.

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a popular choice for patients who want to improve their smiles. This composite resin material is made to match the natural tooth color and enamel to provide coverage for imperfections. In fact, it can be used to address several different cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Severe staining or discoloration

Bonding may also be used to protect exposed roots or to make minor changes in the alignment of teeth. It provides coverage for teeth that need to be covered to improve the smile’s appearance. It is an elective treatment option that rivals porcelain veneers, another option for disguising imperfections in the smile. During a consultation visit, our team at The Dental Loft can assess the situation and determine whether porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental bonding is most appropriate for achieving the desired results.

Is cosmetic dental bonding suitable for me?

The best way to decide if dental bonding is right for your smile is to consult with Dr. Sarah Keen. She can assess your individual needs and recommend the best course of treatment based on your smile, the imperfections present, and your budget. She provides affordable care for patients, and her front office team will apply for dental insurance benefits whenever possible to reduce the out-of-pocket costs for patients.
