If a patient is looking for a smile makeover but is not a good candidate for veneers, composite bonding treatment is the next best alternative. Composite bonding and veneers are both cosmetic dental procedures, but they have some key differences. Composite bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to the tooth’s surface to improve its appearance. It’s often used to repair chipped or cracked teeth, close gaps between teeth, or reshape teeth. The dentist will carefully sculpt and mold the composite material to achieve the desired result. Once the material is in place, it’s hardened with a special light. Veneers, on the other hand, are thin shells, usually made of porcelain, that are custom-made to fit over the front surface of your teeth
Cosmetic Bonding Treatment Can Help Resolve
Minor Cosmetic Concerns: Composite bonding is ideal for addressing minor imperfections like chipped or slightly cracked teeth, small gaps between teeth, or minor tooth discoloration.
Good Oral Health: Candidates should have overall good oral health with healthy teeth and gums. If there are underlying dental issues, those may need to be addressed first.
Desire for Quick Results: If you’re looking for a relatively quick and less invasive cosmetic solution, composite bonding is a good option. The procedure can often be completed in a single dental visit.
Budget Considerations: Composite bonding is generally more cost-effective than some other cosmetic dental procedures, making it a suitable choice for those with budget constraints.
Commitment to Oral Hygiene: While bonding is durable, maintaining good oral hygiene practices is crucial for the longevity of the results. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential.
