Correcting small flaws in your smile doesn't have to involve spending hours at the dentist's office. Newport Beach and Garden dental bonding, cosmetic dentistryGrove, CA, dentist, Dr. Timothy Bui explains how bonding, a common cosmetic dentistry treatment, can transform your smile.

Bonding offers a simple solution to imperfections

Bonding is used to repair teeth and change their appearance. During bonding treatment, composite resin is attached to your teeth. When the resin hardens, it bonds to your teeth, providing an exceptionally strong surface that looks no different than your natural tooth enamel.

Because composite resin is a plastic-based material, it's very flexible in its original form. In fact, it can be manipulated into any shape imaginable. After the composite resin is applied to your teeth in our Newport Beach or Garden Grove office it's exposed to a curing light that hardens it in just a few minutes. Bonding treatment offers an easy way to transform your smile and is a less expensive option than many other cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Will bonding help me?

Bonding is a very versatile treatment that can be used to treat many cosmetic issues, including:

  • Short Teeth: If you grind or clench your teeth, you may eventually shorten them and wear down the enamel. Adding some bonding material to the teeth restores the length.
  • Shape Issues: When you have a few teeth that are strangely shaped, it's not unusual to feel self-conscious about your smile. Bonding will help improve the appearance of your teeth, whether they're twisted or crooked.
  • Discolorations: A dark tooth can be very noticeable when you smile. Luckily, bonding covers discolorations easily.
  • Small Flaws: Bonding is an excellent solution if a tooth has bumps or depressions, or is chipped or cracked.
  • Spaces: Would you like to get rid of the slight spaces between your front teeth? Bonding offers a long-lasting way to close the gap.
