What is Cosmetic Bonding?

What is Cosmetic Bonding?

Published on July 10th, 2018

Having a smile in which you feel confident is always the end goal. But sometimes, regardless of how much work and dedication you put into it, your smile needs extra help from the best dentist in Cary, IL. Dental bonding is one example of a cosmetic dental procedure that can help improve your smile when your teeth are discolored or damaged.

How Does It Work?

Whether you need one tooth repaired or many, cosmetic bonding can help fix your smile. In the tooth bonding process, our dentists will apply a composite resin to the damaged or decaying tooth; this resin will blend in with the rest of your smile, so it looks and feels natural.

Veneer bonding is another alternative to a bond made from composite resin. The process of veneer bonding utilizes either porcelain or composite and it requires a molding in order to be properly manufactured. Porcelain is the stronger material of the two, making it a costlier option than composite. However, both are a great way to improve your smile.

Take Proper Care of Your Smile

Regardless of the type of bonding procedure you receive, aftercare is important in making sure your teeth stay in good shape. If you opted for composite bonding, avoid eating hard candy or ice cubes, as they may crack the composite material. Never open packages with your teeth and avoiding drinking coffee and tea during the first two days after the procedure.

How long your cosmetic bonding procedure lasts is completely up to you! At Cary Dental Associates, you’ll receive care from some of the best dentists in Cary, Il, but it is up to you to take the proper care of your new smile.
