If porcelain veneers are the #1 most asked about cosmetic dentistry treatment, composite bonding comes in at a close second. Your cosmetic dentist will tell you that composite bonding is so popular because it’s less costly and more highly effective.
Do your teeth have any of these issues?
This type of cosmetic treatment uses a tooth-colored composite material that your cosmetic dentist carefully applies to each tooth. Using specialized tools and an artful eye, she’ll be able to sculpt the material into the exact shape she wants. After that, your new composite bonding is hardened and polished.
One of the most significant benefits of composite bonding is that you’ll most likely only have to visit the office once. The procedure is usually completed in a day, allowing about a half-hour to an hour per tooth you’re having bonded. The good news is, you won’t need any anesthesia or enamel removal like other procedures.
