Cosmetic bonding to enhance and brighten your smile

Whether you have a chipped tooth near the front of the mouth, an unwanted gap between the two front teeth, or other imperfections of the smile, our Total Health Dental team can help repair your appearance with composite resin bonding. Also known as cosmetic bonding, composite resin bonding can be used for natural, beautiful results in many different situations. Patients who need restorative solutions for the smile can ask about aesthetic bonding options.

What is composite resin bonding?

The composite resin material is natural-looking and biocompatible with the smile. It is molded on a tooth, shaped into place, cured using a special light, and then polished to look just like natural tooth enamel. It has many purposes in cosmetic dentistry, including:

  • Covering of stained or unusually shaped teeth
  • Disguising gaps between teeth or crooked teeth
  • Repairing teeth that are chipped or cracked
  • Restoring a tooth that has been impacted by a cavity/dental decay

Why choose composite resin bonding?

There are numerous reasons why patients might choose dental bonding. Composite resin bonding look completely natural when done by an experienced dental provider such as Dr. Khaja Mohsinuddin. It is biocompatible with the body and can last many years before it needs to be replaced. This procedure can also provide same-day results when patients require restorative treatments. Compared to other treatments such as orthodontic work or porcelain veneers, composite resin bonding is much more affordable!

What alternatives are available?

The alternative treatment available will vary depending on the purpose of the composite resin bonding. If the bonding is used to cover an imperfection on the front of the smile, an alternative treatment might be porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells that bond onto the tooth’s front to change its appearance. However, these are more costly and might not be as available to a patient as composite resin bonding.
