Artistic Dental Bonding

Bonding-Cornwell-Bonding-BeforeAndAfter-1Composite Bonding is a low-cost, cosmetic technique that Chestnut Green Dental use to improve the appearance of your teeth. The term “composite” refers to a dentally tinted blend of materials, either resin or plastic, which is affixed to an existing tooth.

Bonding is an inexpensive solution for repairing chipped or cracked teeth, hiding discoloration on the tooth’s surface, or reducing the spaces between anteriorteeth. Whatever the specific intent, composite bonding creates more esthetically pleasing teeth and a more brilliant smile.

Unlike veneers or crowns, composite bonding won’t require grinding down of the original tooth. Tooth-colored fillings (bonding) can also effectively address cavities without having to grind away large amounts of the natural tooth structure. Not only do you not have those depressing metal fillings, you also have a tooth that is much stronger overall.

The thin coating of plastic material lasts for up to 10 years and will produce one or all of the following results:

  • Repair decayed teeth
  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Brighten discolored teeth
  • Eliminate gaps between teeth
  • Fix a tooth’s length or shape
  • Protect the tooth’s root if receding gums have exposed it
