Composite Bonding is a style of cosmetic dentistry that the team at Sterling Dental use to improve the appearance of your teeth. The term “composite” refers to a white-colored blend of resin materials which are artfully applied to an existing tooth.
Bonding is an inexpensive solution for fixing cracked or chipped teeth, hiding staining on the tooth’s surface, or hiding the gaps between anterior teeth. Whatever the specific intent, composite bonding creates more aesthetically attractive teeth and a more brilliant smile.
Unlike veneers or crowns, composite bonding doesn’t demand removal of the original tooth. Tooth-colored fillings (bonding) can also effectively treat cavities without having to destroy large amounts of the existing tooth structure. Not only do you not have those depressing silver fillings, you also have a tooth that is restored more effectively.
The thin coating of resin material lasts for up to 10 years and will produce one or all of the following results:
- Restore decayed teeth
- Restore cracked or chipped teeth
- Whiten discolored teeth
- Eliminate gaps between teeth
- Enhance a tooth’s length or shape
- Protect the tooth’s root if shrinking gums have exposed it
