If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect tooth that needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest one-appointment bonding. Drs. Duke, Albertelli, and Keddington offer this cosmetic service to enhance damaged and weakened smiles at Dental Designs of Bountiful.
This procedure requires little to no tooth preparation, which means your visit should be comfortable and pain free. The dentists can apply liquid composite resin, shaded to blend with your tooth’s color, to rebuild a pleasing shape to your tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, they will artistically sculpt and polish the restoration to correct flaws and enhance the appearance of the teeth. In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile!
Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, but it lasts only 5 to 10 years with proper care. Bonding will not discolor as your natural tooth enamel will, so touch-up teeth whitening may be required to keep your natural teeth the same shade as the bonded area.
