Is there an alternative cosmetic solution to permanent dental veneers?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic solution for minor damage or cosmetic concerns that can be used to mold your smile into your dream smile. A more economical, semi-permanent alternative to dental veneers, bonding is often ideal for young patients or anyone not ready to commit to the investment required with porcelain veneers. Dental bonding does not require as much tooth preparation and can be reversed or swapped out for dental veneer later on.
Dental bonding is used to:
- Repair small cracks or chips
- Rebuild worn edges
- Fill small gaps between teeth
- Correct minor discoloration
Tooth bonding is applied directly to the tooth and shaped into place. The composite material is colored to match your natural tooth for a seamless result. Dr. Kaplan will communicate with the patient until the desired effect is achieved. The bonding material is then hardened and polished to a natural shine for nearly unnoticeable results that enhance the appearance of your smile.
Dental bonding is made from a biocompatible material that is both stain and decay resistant. The material comes in a range of tooth-colored shades for near-perfect matching. With proper care and maintenance, dental bonding can last for many years.
