Composite bonding, also sometimes simply called dental bonding, is a dental procedure that adds a very small amount of resin to your teeth in order to alter their shape. If your teeth are damaged or misshapen, composite bonding can repair individual teeth until you’ve got the smile you want!
Like many dental treatments, some people might benefit more from composite bonding than others. There are a few factors to keep in mind when considering composite bonding for yourself or a loved one.
Composite Bonding Can Repair Chips, Cracks, and Fractures in Your Teeth
If your primary concern is the appearance of your teeth, especially broken or damaged teeth, composite bonding might be the answer! This composite resin is highly customizable, which means composite bonding can repair all kinds of dental fractures, from small to severe.
Composite bonding can even be used for a whiter individual tooth or fully brightened smile.
What Composite Bonding Can NOT Do
Even though composite bonding can change the shape of your teeth, it’s not the best treatment to use if you’re trying to correct your bite. If you’re interested in a healthier bite, talk to your dentist about the best way to fix it!
Bonding is also only for lighter repairs more on the surface level of your teeth. If your teeth are damaged to the point that there’s very little of your natural tooth left, consider receiving an implant or a dental crown instead.
The resin used in composite bonding needs a natural tooth base to work, so composite bonding won’t be the best fit for you if you’re missing a large chunk off your tooth or missing any teeth entirely.
Get a Confidence Boost From Your Smile!
Even if your teeth aren’t badly damaged, composite bonding can subtly reshape your smile to something you’ll be proud of. When you feel great about your smile, it shows! By improving your smile, composite bonding can boost your self-confidence at home, work, and school.
