Cosmetic Bonding – Rochester, MN
Fix Minor Flaws in an Hour or Less
Cosmetic Bonding can fix crooked, gapped or badly stained teeth.
Tooth bonding is one type of cosmetic dental procedure that bonds tooth-colored material (resin) to the surface of a tooth. Bonding is likely the easiest and least expensive of the many cosmetic dentistry procedures.
The resin used in tooth bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Bonding can also be used to create temporary veneers to see if you like the new look before you decide to undertake a more involved procedure, such as porcelain veneers.
Cosmetic Bonding is used to:
- Reshape teeth
- Fix crooked teeth
- Close unwanted gaps
- Cover (and whiten) badly stained teeth
Unlike porcelain veneers, cosmetic tooth bonding can be done in a single visit. The procedure is called dental bonding because the material literally bonds directly to the tooth.
No preparation is needed for bonding and anesthesia is usually not necessary. The resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth.
The dental bonding resin is not as strong and durable as a natural tooth and can sometimes be chipped. Bonding can last several years before it needs repair.
