While you may assume cosmetic dental treatments are lengthy or expensive, you’ll be glad to know that cosmetic dental bonding is one of the easiest and most affordable solutions to enhance your smile. Find out if your dental imperfections can be fixed with bonding.

What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

Tooth bonding is a quick and painless procedure that involves applying composite resin to the affected tooth to improve its appearance of the tooth or mask certain defects. Composite resin is a tooth-colored material that is also used for dental fillings as a preferred alternative to amalgam or silver. You can trust the durability and aesthetics of composite resin.

While not all dental flaws can be fixed with dental bonding, there are several minor aesthetic concerns that can be – including the following:

  • Chipped Teeth
  • Discolored Teeth
  • Too-Small Teeth
  • Minor Teeth Gaps
  • Short Teeth

Cosmetic resin is painted on your tooth in layers and custom-matched to blend in with your existing smile. A special curing light is used to harden the material before it is polished to perfection. You’ll be glad to know that dental bonding does not require removal or alteration to your current tooth structure. This procedure will also not cause pain. In fact, your dentist may not even have to administer local anesthetics or numbing agents before applying the resin to your tooth. Dental bonding is a fast, simple and safe way to enhance your smile beauty.

Dentistry should be as affordable as it is high-quality. At Peninsula Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we firmly believe that the terms of a dental insurance plan (or lack thereof) should not dictate the quality of care our patients deserve. That’s why we are pleased to offer our in-house savings plan. Now, patients who are uninsured can STILL save on general, preventative, and even ortho services!
