What Is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?
Cosmetic dental bonding is a noninvasive procedure designed to improve the appearance of teeth. The material used in bonding is a tooth-colored resin that’s matched to the color of the patient’s natural teeth. Your cosmetic dentist will mold and sculpt the resin to achieve a seamless look with the rest of your smile and harden it with ultraviolet light during the procedure. The result is a natural-looking finish to your teeth that’s sure to last for several years.
Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding
There are many benefits patients can enjoy when they choose cosmetic dental bonding. Some of the advantages you can look forward to include:

Affordable: Compared to other cosmetic dentistry procedures, bonding is one of the most affordable options available to correct certain imperfections with your teeth. This makes it an attractive solution for patients who want to improve their smile.

Customizable: The resin used in cosmetic dental bonding can be molded and sculpted to achieve the same shape and color as your surrounding teeth. Your dentist will take impressions of your smile to ensure a renewed look that you can take pride in.
