Benefits of Dental Bonding
Are you unhappy with imperfections in your teeth, or the way they’re positioned within your mouth? If you live in Cincinnati, Hardin Advanced Dentistry might be able to help you attain your beautiful smile with dental bonding.
Dental bonding is the process of using a resin material matching the natural color of your teeth to restore your smile. Like the name suggests, the resin is applied to your tooth and dried into place using a special ultraviolet light, bonding the cosmetic material with your natural enamel.
Dental bonding can be used to improve teeth that are stained, chipped, cracked, misshapen or separated by unattractive minor gaps. Some of the benefits include:
- Little to no removal of enamel, retaining the health and natural structure of your tooth.
- Less extensive procedure than restorations like porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
- Can usually be completed in one appointment.
At Hardin Advanced Dentistry, we also use tooth-colored resin to fill teeth damaged by cavities. Like dental bonding, tooth-colored fillings require very limited removal of the tooth’s healthy surface to complete. The material is also part of our metal-free dentistry philosophy of keeping your mouth and entire body free from mercury and other potentially harmful materials.
