What is Composite Bonding?
Composite bonding is a procedure during which your dentist will utilize a composite resin that is matched to your tooth’s natural shade so that it can be applied to the tooth to fix a number of dental health issues. Composite bonding is non-invasive and pain-free. There is no need for any form of anesthetic, and there is no drilling required. The composite resin is applied to the tooth, sculpted so that the tooth looks natural, and then the resin is hardened so that it remains in place. Composite bonding is a wonderful alternative to crowns and veneers, as long as the tooth is not damaged badly. What follows are some situations where composite bonding will be effective.
Composite bonding can help with the appearance of slightly crooked teeth. Using composite resin in the right places, your dentist provides their artistic touch by molding the resin to hide slightly crooked or misaligned teeth. Please keep in mind this is only possible with teeth that have minor positioning issues.
Composite bonding is a great solution for closing gaps between teeth. If you have a small gap between a single tooth or multiple teeth, bonding can provide excellent results. Composite resin is placed over the teeth on either side of the gap and crafted to eliminate the gap. This works best for minor gaps. Larger gaps may need orthodontic treatment.
These are just a couple of situations where pain-free composite bonding can work wonders.
