How composite bonding is used to repair and restore teeth

At Shroyer Family Dental in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, patients can work with our team of professionals to achieve beautiful and healthy smiles. One way to accomplish this is with the use of cosmetic treatments such as composite dental bonding. This fast and affordable aesthetic treatment is used to cover natural tooth structures or repair a natural tooth without needing porcelain veneers or dental crowns.

How does composite bonding work?

Using a material known as composite resin, the material is molded onto the tooth and cured using a special light. Once hardened, Dr. Adam Shroyer can then file down and polish the material to shape it to the natural tooth and disguise the imperfection that needs to be covered. This is a beautiful alternative to crowns and veneers and allows patients to make immediate changes to the appearance of one or more teeth.

Using dental composite resin bonding to improve the smile

Cosmetic bonding is a commonly used procedure to improve the smile. It can be used to correct a wide variety of dental problems, including:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

How long does dental bonding take?

Bonding is typically done in one office visit and does not require any anesthesia. The procedure involves using a tooth-colored composite resin to bond the tooth.

How long will my composite resin bonding last?

The results of bonding are usually temporary and may last for several years. Bonding is not as strong as other cosmetic dental procedures, such as veneers or crowns. However, it is much less expensive and can be done in a single office visit.
