Cosmetic bonding involves applying composite resin material to teeth to help conceal and repair cosmetic flaws like chips, cracks, imperfections, discoloration, small gaps, or misshapen teeth. Dr. Naylor will select the perfect shade of bonding material so that it matches the natural color of your surrounding teeth.
Cosmetic bonding is an alternative to cosmetic veneers, and is often less expensive. Cosmetic bonding yields instant results. Results of cosmetic bonding can last for years with proper hygiene and regular dentist visits.
Good candidates for cosmetic bonding are patients who are in good health and who only have minor cosmetic imperfections. More extensive cosmetic dental problems may require porcelain veneers or crowns. Any existing cavities should be fixed before a tooth undergoes any cosmetic procedure.
