How Dental Composite Bonding can enhance the smile

Whether you need to restore chipped teeth or fill gaps between the teeth, our team at Aztec Family Dental of Aztec, New Mexico, can assist. With cosmetic bonding, also referred to as composite resin bonding or just “dental bonding,” we can fix imperfections that might otherwise affect the appearance of your smile.

What is cosmetic bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is the use of a composite resin material to disguise issues within the smile, including:

  • Dull or discolored/permanently stained teeth
  • Jagged or rough edges of the front teeth
  • Slightly chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gaps between the teeth in the front of the smile

What are the benefits of cosmetic bonding?

When applied and sculpted by a skilled professional, cosmetic bonding can look as natural as the natural tooth enamel. This is because it is matched by color and, when cured and polished, blends in with the smile. Our team is pleased to offer this as a solution that can provide same-day results. With composite resin bonding, many patients find that they can address an issue within the smile without extended time in the dentist’s chair and without the expense of alternative solutions such as porcelain veneers. However, composite resin is susceptible to staining and discoloration, so it will need to be replaced more often than porcelain veneers. Our team can discuss the pros and cons of each choice available for your unique situation.
