What is bonding?

bondingCosmetic bonding restores chipped, cracked, misaligned or discolored teeth to their former brilliance. Dr. Scott Healey, our experienced dentist, may also recommend cosmetic bonding to improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth, to fill in gaps and spaces between the teeth, or to cover exposed tooth roots. Bonding is a plastic resin that is used to rebuild the teeth and make them look natural. We use tooth-colored composite resin for cosmetic bonding in Lindon, Utah, to provide you with beautiful, long-lasting results. The resin is applied to your natural tooth structure and then the finished tooth is smoothed and polished to achieve a natural-looking shine.

Do I need bonding?

If you are interested in correcting minor flaws in your smile, we may suggest cosmetic bonding. This procedure can be done in just one visit and looks and feels like your existing teeth. In most cases, cosmetic bonding requires little to no tooth preparation, so you can rest assured that your treatment will be comfortable and pleasant. Cosmetic bonding usually needs to be touched up periodically to correct wear or discoloration. With new cosmetic bonding technology, more expensive, more painful veneers or crowns may not be necessary! Cosmetic bonding is a conservative, simple, and fast cosmetic dental treatment that can make a noticeable difference in your smile. Come make an appointment today at Scott M. Healey Dentistry!
