Understanding Cosmetic Bonding

Understanding Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding might be a great dental solution if you have a tooth that is stained, discolored, chipped, or broken. Dr. Emilio Couret is highly skilled in the process of using cosmetic bonding to improve the appearance of a damaged tooth. Bonding is one of the least expensive methods for repairing a tooth, and it is highly durable, which allows it to be used for a number of different cosmetic purposes.

Cosmetic bonding involves using a tooth-colored resin material that adheres to the tooth and is permanently bonded when a special curing light is applied to it. There is no special preparation for cosmetic bonding, which means that it can usually be completed in a single dental visit.

If the dentist determines that cosmetic bonding is the best option for you, he will carefully prepare a resin that precisely matches your natural tooth color in order to optimize the appearance of you smile. Once the cosmetic bonding has been completed, you can resume normal habits. Continue to follow proper oral hygiene practices and your cosmetic bonding should last for quite some time, although it may need to be repaired in the future.
