Cosmetic bonding refers to restorations made from composite plastic material, and is used similarly to porcelain veneers and on-lays. The cosmetic bonding requires no outside lab procedure, and is built directly onto the tooth structure.
Cosmetic bonding is durable, tissue compatible, kind to the opposing teeth, and stain resistant. We are able to make absolutely the thinnest restoration possible using this material. Cosmetic bonding allows us to preserve the greatest amount of natural tooth structure, and minimal or no numbing is usually needed. Exquisite natural esthetics are achieved, as well as the light transmitting qualities found in natural teeth. It is most often used to close spaces, replace worn enamel, repair broken or chipped teeth, re-shape crooked or misaligned teeth, and to cover permanently stained or discolored teeth. Composite bonding is also used to fill cavities and to replace existing mercury silver fillings.
