Cosmetic bonding involves bonding tooth-colored filling material to the front teeth. Since we’ll match the color to your existing shade, some people whiten their teeth first to help their final results look even better. And since the composite resin we use is the same material used to repair cavities on the back teeth, it not only looks great but is also strong and durable.
One of the advantages of cosmetic bonding is that it works for so many types of flaws, including:
Also, it’s important to note that we may recommend an alternative treatment for more severe issues. Ultimately, when it comes to providing cosmetic dentistry in Bellingham, our goal is to make sure that you love your final results!
Cosmetic bonding offers all of the following benefits:
Unless there’s a cavity present, local anesthesia usually isn’t necessary because composite resin is simply being added to your tooth. If there is decay, the first step will be numbing the area. From there, we’ll apply putty-like composite to your tooth and shape it to look natural. Then it will be hardened with a “curing” light and polished to feel very smooth. Your bonding will be fully set when you leave, so you can eat and drink normally immediately.
As a dentist in Bellingham, we’ve found that cosmetic bonding is an excellent way to correct a multitude of flaws with a minimal amount of dental work.
