Tooth Bonding For Immediate Results
Tooth bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin material using adhesives and a high-intensity curing light. The procedure gets its name because materials are bonded to the tooth. Often bonding is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings, or to protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede.
Bonding is typically used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It is also used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer, or to change the shape or color of teeth. Recent advances in materials coupled with advanced techniques have meant that cosmetic bonding is becoming more effective and popular than ever before. In the hands of an experienced cosmetic dentist, like Dr. Trenton Paffenroth, that means you can get fast results and a natural-looking solution smile.
