Cosmetic Teeth Bonding

Composite bonding is a very conservative form of treatment that allows us to change the color, shape, and contours of existing teeth. In the office we have numerous different shades and colors of composite, so we can match the color of the adjacent teeth. There are also different tints and translucent shades available to us so that we can add life-like character to the bonding.

Bonding requires only a very minimal reduction of the natural tooth. In a lot of cases, there is no reduction of the natural tooth. Dr. Hull adds the different composite shades to the natural tooth in order to build the tooth up to its ideal proportions. Afterwards, time is taken to polish and refine the composite.

Teeth bonding can be used to fix chipped teeth. Often times, teeth bonding is also used as a lesser cost alternative to porcelain veneers.

Individual Cosmetic Bonding Treatment

Like every cosmetic procedure done in dentistry, no case is exactly alike. It’s important to evaluate each person’s individual bite, face, and adjacent teeth to determine if cosmetic bonding is a procedure that will work for them.

Cosmetic bonding can help with, misshapen teeth, gaps in teeth, teeth that are too small or big, some crooked teeth, and much more. If you have any imperfections in your smile that you’d like to have fixed, speak with Dr. Eric Hull, DDS in Grand Rapids to see if cosmetic dental bonding might be an option for you.
