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 many reasons why patients might choose dental bonding. Composite resin bonding looks completely natural when done by an experienced dental provider such as Dr. William Lesh. 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. When compared to other treatments such as orthodontic work or porcelain veneers, composite resin bonding is much more affordable as well!
What alternatives are available?
The alternative treatment available will vary depending on the purpose of the composite resin bonding. If the bonding is being 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 front face of a tooth to change its appearance. However, these are more costly and might not be as available to a patient as composite resin bonding.
