Instantly enhance your smile with cosmetic dental bonding

Cosmetic dental bonding is fast, affordable, and effective way to improve the appearance of teeth. It is versatile enough to handle cracks, chips, or broken teeth, as well as correcting improperly shaped or spaced teeth. For patients in the Glen Mills, PA, the team at Star Care Dental is ready to help handle your dental issues and enhance your smile with cosmetic dental bonding.

Dental bonding explained

Cosmetic dental bonding is made of composite resin, the same material that is used in tooth-colored fillings. The plastic mixture can be matched to the color of your existing teeth for a solution that blends in seamlessly and naturally.

Dental bonding is a great option for patients who wish to make small changes in the smile without the cost commitment of permanent options like porcelain veneers. Dental bonding is completely versatile, so if you do choose veneers at a later date, that can easily be accommodated.

Dental bonding can be used to address a wide range of issues or imperfections. From handling small cracks and chips to gaps between teeth, adjusting the size of teeth, or hiding permanent discoloration, the treatment can quickly boost the appearance of your smile. The best part is, there is no impressions or the need for multiple dental visits. Dental bonding can be accomplished in a single visit.

Benefits of dental bonding

  • Conservative – dental bonding does not require alteration to the natural tooth structure
  • Affordable – dental bonding costs much less than alternatives such as veneers
  • Comfortable – there is no need for numbing
  • Easy – most cases of dental bonding can be completed in a single appointment

What to expect

During your consultation, we will visually examine the teeth and discuss your desired results to determine dental bonding is the correct choice for your situation. To begin, a conditioning gel is applied to the surface of the tooth to lightly roughen it for better adhesion of the composite resin. Then, the resin is applied directly to the tooth and shaped to achieved desired results. Next, the resin is hardened with a special curing light. Finally, the entire area is polished for a proper bite and a beautiful appearance.
