Non-invasive bonding uses tooth-colored materials to rebuild small areas of damaged enamel. It matches the rest of your tooth to cover gaps or chips, so that they are no longer visible. A small area of bonding may be all your smile needs to look completely rejuvenated. If your dental consultation determines that cosmetic bonding is the best solution for you, Dr. Cook will be able to give you the natural, bright smile that you deserve without the anxiety, stress, or expense of other dental transformation alternatives.
Most often, this type of cosmetic treatment is used to address minor issues with your teeth. However, even small changes can have a major aesthetic impact. Experience a huge impact when addressing the smallest of aesthetic problems, like:
- Tooth stains or discolorations
- Gaps between teeth
- Short or irregularly shaped teeth
- Worn biting surfaces
- Edges with minor chips or cracks
- Exposed root surfaces
After consulting with Dr. Cook, the typical dental bonding treatment usually takes just one visit at our office. During your appointment, your tooth will be prepared with a gentle contouring process after which a conditioning liquid will be applied to the surface of the tooth. A color and shade matched resin-putty will be applied to your tooth and expertly molded into the normal, natural shape you desire. Then an ultraviolet light will be used to cure or harden the resin into a durable, tough layer over the surface of your tooth. After a quick polish, you will be ready to impress all your friends and family with a transformed smile.
