Dental bonding is one of the least known, but least expensive and easy-to-apply, cosmetic dentistry techniques to improve your smile (compared with veneers, crowns, Invisalign orthodontic aligners, and implants). But it can also play an important role in restoring your oral health and the functioning of your bite.

Dental Cavities

Bonding is made of a composite resin that can be colored to match the exact shade of your teeth. It is a way of addressing severe discoloration that does not respond even to professional whitening techniques, but more affordable for many than veneers (though not as long-lasting). It can also be applied more quickly and does not require as much enamel to be removed during preparation to shape and attach veneers.

It is also an option for covering minor chips and cracks. Bonding can also be used to build up teeth that are shorter than their neighbors, to change their shape, or fill in a gap between them, improving your bite and giving you the confidence to flash a full and friendly smile.

If you grind your teeth while sleeping, bonding can cover up the damage and protect the teeth from further harm (you should also have Wilshire Smile Studio craft a personalized nightguard, similar to a sports mouthguard, which you wear while when go you to sleep).
