Cosmetic bonding refers to restorations made from composite resin material, and is used similarly to porcelain veneers and onlays. Cosmetic bonding requires no outside lab procedure and is built directly onto the tooth structure.
- tissue compatible
- kind to the opposing teeth
Cosmetic bonding allows us to preserve the greatest amount of natural tooth structure. Exquisite natural esthetics are achieved, as well as the light transmitting qualities found in natural teeth. Dr. Thakkar and Dr. Swenda have artistic abilities that make the results of cosmetic bonding long-lasting and realistic.
Bonding is most often used to:
- close spaces
- replace worn enamel
- repair broken or chipped teeth
- re-shape crooked or misaligned teeth
- cover permanently stained or discolored teeth
Composite bonding can also be used to fill cavities and to replace existing failed fillings.
