Cosmetic bonding is a quick and simple cosmetic dental treatment, which Dr. Oliver will carry out in a single visit. The procedure is ideal for repairing damaged teeth, hiding gaps and restoring the original color to your teeth. Bonding is achieved by applying a resin that matches the color of the tooth to the damaged or discolored area. A specially adapted UV light is then used to bond the resin to the area, so that the tooth is restored to its origin shape or color. Cosmetic bonding is usually painless and anesthetic is not required unless the procedure is being used as a filling for cavities.
As well as repairing damaged teeth, cosmetic bonding is also used to fill gaps where the gums have receded. This will ensure that the root is not exposed to bacteria and will help prevent gum disease. Although bonding can be used to change the shape of your teeth, Dr. Oliver will shape the resin to match the original tooth under normal circumstance. There is less need to remove enamel than with other cosmetic treatments, too. As an alternative to other more intrusive cosmetic treatments, bonding is often the best choice for patrons who only require minor dental repairs and aesthetic dental work.
