Dental bonding is used for minor accidents that result in small chips and cracks. The same approach can be used not just to restore the appearance of your smile, but to improve it. Learn more about the cosmetic dentistry uses for dental bonding in Indianapolis, IN, from Dr. Joseph Holland of Holland Dental.
Understanding Composite Resin
Composite resin is the material used by your dentist to reshape your teeth or hide imperfections. It is a very versatile material that can be used in many situations.
It is applied in liquid form in very thin layers and it is built up until there is enough for the restoration. Each layer is hardened using a special light that works almost instantly. Everything typically takes place within a single visit, finishing with your dentist giving the tooth a final shaping and polish.
Bonding and Contouring
The same way our dentist can use dental bonding to repair a tooth that has been chipped, they can employ the same approach to your smile as a whole. By reshaping your teeth, your dentist can make them more uniform in shape and size and can even eliminate small gaps.
By tackling all of these imperfections the result is a smile you are happy to show off and that can be performed rather quickly, compared to other restorations that achieve similar goals.
