Do you have small teeth resulting in spaces that may not be easily closed by orthodontics? Do your teeth have worn edges, resulting in a prematurely aged appearance or teeth that appear crooked? These flaws and more can be corrected with cosmetic bonding provided our dental team.

Cosmetic bonding is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that can be used to brighten discolored teeth that do not respond to whitening treatments. It is often used to recontour teeth. If your teeth look too small, we can use cosmetic bonding to make them appear larger. It is also used to make short teeth look longer. Small changes in the appearance of your teeth can make a big difference in the beauty of your smile. Cosmetic bonding can help enhance your smile making it appear better than ever.

What Is Cosmetic Bonding?

Cosmetic bonding is a dental procedure in which a tooth-colored composite is applied to cracked, broken or discolored teeth and hardened with a special light. This ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth and improves the overall appearance.

About Composite Resin

Glass or ceramic and plastic polymers are combined together to create composite resin. These resins are available in a variety of tooth colors. Your dentist will match the color of the resin to your tooth color, so the finished product will be seamless. No one will be able to tell the difference between your natural tooth and the section with resin.

When a tooth has a deep cavity that needs to be filled or has been broken and needs to be built up, the composite material is placed in layers. The special light is used to harden each layer. This process ensures that the resin is well-bonded to the tooth and hard throughout. The result is a tooth repair that can withstand the pressure of chewing or biting and has the appearance of a natural tooth.

Enhancing Your Smile with Cosmetic Bonding

Small flaws may not interfere with the function of your teeth, but they can ruin your smile. Some problems, like teeth that are slightly misaligned, can be significantly improved with cosmetic bonding. When facial proportions and tooth size do not match up, cosmetic bonding may be able to resolve the difference. Find out more about dental bonding at our Charleston dental practice.

Dr. Wisner and Dr. McPherson can evaluate your smile and determine the best course of action to restore your teeth to a beautiful, natural appearance.

No Insurance?
No Problem!

Join our Premier Plan Today

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!
