What is dental bonding and what is it used for? The treatment involves applying a special material to your teeth to cover up blemishes and improve their overall appearance. Here is how it can help you.

Bonding might be helpful if your teeth get into a spot of trouble, like being discolored, fractured or chipped. It can also help if some teeth developed some irregularities, like being too small or spaced too far apart. The material can conceal issues like discolorations and minor fractures, and it can fill in empty gaps to make your teeth look whole.

The material the bonding is made from, which is composite resin, has some unique properties you may like. Composite resin has an identical color to teeth. You do not need to worry about the bonding clashing with your smile because it can fade into the background.

To help make sure that it obscure enough to not be noticed, our dentist, Dr. Carole Gleich DDS, can etch it so it has the same basic shape of natural teeth. When it is done, the bonding can appear so real that others may just assume they are looking at a natural smile.
