For our patients who are interested in a conservative yet effective cosmetic treatment, our dentists may recommend cosmetic dental bonding. With this treatment, we can whiten teeth, correct imperfections in your smile, and improve the appearance of misshapen teeth. Call VIP Smiles today at 801-776-3000 to schedule your appointment with Drs. Shad, Richard, and Clive Ingram and learn more about cosmetic dental bonding in Syracuse, Utah.
Known as cosmetic bonding or dental bonding, bonding is simple, quick, and requires no shots, needles, or drilling. During the bonding process, our dentists place a substance called composite resin onto the natural tooth structure. This resin material is matched to your natural tooth color to provide a natural-looking effect. If you would like to use dental bonding to whiten your teeth by correcting tooth staining and spotting, we may use a shade of composite resin that is lighter than your original tooth color. Our dentists then skillfully shape the resin to fit the shape of your tooth and correct your smile’s imperfections.
Dental bonding can be used to:
- Fill in spaces and gaps in between teeth
- Correct teeth that are chipped, fractured, or broken
- Improve the appearance and functionality of irregularly shaped teeth
- Restore very worn teeth
- Lighten teeth that are spotted, stained, or discolored
Once the composite resin is shaped as you desire, we harden it with a special light and polish it to match your smile. This entire process can generally be completed in a single visit to VIP Smiles, and often in less than one hour. We welcome you to contact our office today to learn more about bonding and its uses in improving your smile.
