Have you put off improving your smile because you assumed that correcting your issues would involve lengthy or costly dental treatments? Cosmetic bonding offers a quick, simple, relatively inexpensive way to address many tooth imperfections. Our Aiea, HI, dentist, Dr. Gale Marana, explains how bonding can enhance your smile.
What is cosmetic bonding?
Composite resin, a soft material made of plastic and powdered glass, is applied to your tooth to conceal flaws or change the look of a tooth during the bonding process. When the resin is exposed to a curing light, it bonds to your enamel, becoming a permanent part of your tooth. Bonding doesn't usually require any anesthesia and may be performed in conjunction with reshaping, a treatment that removes small amounts of enamel to eliminate overlapping tooth edges or improve the shape of a tooth.
