Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure at Dr. Bill Dorfman DDS in Century City, but there are many patients who don’t know exactly what it is. In this blog post, we list seven dental issues that bonding can fix.
First, an explanation of bonding: The procedure uses a tooth-colored material that is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty. Next, it is hardened with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth, and can be shaped and polished.
Dentists will usually consider the option of bonding when:
- Teeth are decayed
- Teeth are chipped
- Cracked teeth need to be repaired
- There are large gaps between the teeth
- Gums have receded and enamel needs protection
- Teeth are discolored
- Teeth look too long, too short, or just need their general shape changed.
