What is cosmetic dental bonding?

If you have smile flaws you would like to correct, you have several options in cosmetic dentistry to do so.woman with cosmetic dental bonding in kirkland wa Porcelain veneers and dental crowns are well-known for their ability to fix problems like chipped or broken teeth. But another affordable option that’s very popular with our Kirkland, WA patients is cosmetic dental bonding.

Dental bonding is a simple, non-invasive process that uses the same natural-looking material we used to create tooth-colored fillings. Dr. Kim uses cosmetic bonding at our Kirkland dental office to correct many aesthetic dental flaws:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Gaps and uneven spacing
  • Teeth that appear too small
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth

First, we match the shade of the composite filling material to complement and blend with your smile. Then our cosmetic dentist builds the material up, layer by layer, sculpting it to improve the appearance of your teeth. When she has achieved the desired shape, he uses a UV light to harden and set the material.

Because bonding is such a straightforward process, Dr. Kim can transform several teeth in just one appointment. If you follow proper oral hygiene and stick to a schedule of preventive visits, bonding can last between five and seven years before we need to replace it.
