Cosmetic Bonding in Davidson, NC
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Your teeth are naturally strong enough to handle most of what life throws at them. But accidents happen, and even the strongest teeth may not grow straight. For chips and gaps, there’s cosmetic (or composite) dental bonding.
While porcelain veneers can solve many dental issues, they may be more comprehensive than you need. Cosmetic dental bonding can repair small chips in your teeth and close tight gaps between them. This non-invasive treatment is quick, easy, and doesn’t require any anesthetic to comfortably complete. So if you’re looking to put the full bite back into your bicuspids, or if you’re tired of feeling self-conscious about your smile, cosmetic bonding may be for you!
How Does Cosmetic Bonding Work?
For chipped, broken, cracked, or unevenly spaced teeth, cosmetic dental bonding offers a solution. After your initial consultation, your dentist will use a tooth-colored composite to naturally plug the chip, crack, or gap in no time flat.
The tooth in question is roughed slightly to help the composite resin adhere and stay in place. Using a curing light, the resin is hardened into place, where it should stay as long as you need it! Then, after some shaping and polishing, you’re ready to go with a restored grin and some restored confidence too.
Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic Bonding FAQs
As a replacement for your natural teeth material, cosmetic bonds can exceed a decade of use or more. Designed to be resilient and natural looking, cosmetic bonds provide benefits for years and years.
Maintaining your cosmetic bonds is as easy as taking care of your teeth in general. You’ll want to avoid hard food/candies, brush regularly, and schedule some follow-up appointments with your dentist. For a couple of days after the procedure, you may also want to avoid coffee, tobacco, and tea as they may cause staining.
Every procedure is conducted on a case-by-case basis, but patients can generally expect their procedure to land somewhere between 30 minutes and an hour.
Like your teeth, cosmetic bonds are not invincible. With proper care, thoughtful dental habits, and regular checkups, your cosmetic bonds should work alongside your teeth without incident for years to come.
