Usually done in one office visit and to thank for changing the lives of many patients, dental bonding is one of the most trusted cosmetic dental treatments there is. Bonding can be used to cover damage to the teeth, but it can also be used to fix issues that make you apprehensive about showing off your pearly whites.
Slight Gaps Between the Teeth
Having a small gap between your teeth is not just a cosmetic issue, it can also change how you sound when you speak, make you feel self-conscious when you smile, and change how your teeth come together when you bite down. Dental bonding can help bring a slight gap closer together so it is not as noticeable. By building out the width of both of the teeth just slightly, it can drastically reduce the overall width of the gap without making the teeth look too large.
Discolored Spots on the Teeth
Bonding material can be used to cover spots of discoloration that are not lightening when you clean or whiten your teeth. For example, if you have a spot on one of your front teeth that is much darker than the rest of the enamel, the bonding material may be a viable solution to cover the unsightly discoloration.
Teeth That Are Too Small
Some people are simply dissatisfied with the size of their teeth. Teeth that are too small can make your gums look larger if you have several teeth that don’t seem to fit in with your smile. If you only have one tooth that is smaller than the rest, it can really throw off the alignment of your smile. Bonding material can be used to cover the too-small teeth and make them either longer or wider so they fit in better as part of your smile.
Dental bonding material has been proven as an excellent procedure to rectify a full list of cosmetic dental issues. It is amazing how much one small change can make in your smile confidence, and it is even more amazing how simple dental bonding procedures can be. Reach out to the office of Dr. Joseph M. Cassara for more information about our dental bonding procedures.
