Cosmetic Bonding for Broomall, Newtown Square, Havertown PA

If you're anxious about coming to the dentist, we would like to bring you comfort.

Are you embarrassed by your smile? If discoloration, unsightly dental chips, and gaps between your teeth have got you down, Dr. Sander I. White may consider cosmetic dental bonding as a possible method to restore form and function to your smile.

Cosmetic bonding material is a sophisticated resin that your Broomall cosmetic dentist can use to improve your teeth. Made to mimic your teeth’s natural color and opacity, cosmetic bonding material is the same composite resin that is used to create tooth-colored fillings. Modern advances in cosmetic bonding have made the material more durable than ever before.

Problems Cosmetic Bonding Can Repair

Composite resins can do more than create beautiful, seamless fillings. Here are just a few of the problems that can be repaired with cosmetic bonding.

  • Chipped Teeth: Because composite resin bonds to enamel and underlying dentin, it can be used to repair chipped teeth. Available in a huge range of different tooth shades, composite resin blends in perfectly with existing teeth and looks natural.
  • Gaps Between Teeth: Composite resin can also be added to two neighboring teeth to correct gaps. This eliminates the need for orthodontic repairs in some cases.
  • Discoloration: When deeply stained teeth can’t be corrected with traditional teeth whitening alone, composite resin can be used to alter the color and give tooth surfaces a smooth shine.
  • Root Exposure: If you are an aggressive brusher, you might have painful root exposure near your gum line, where your enamel is naturally thinner. Root exposure can make your smile look aged and can leave your teeth exceptionally sensitive, which is why Dr. White might recommend composite resin coverage. After the area is repaired with cosmetic dental bonding, the teeth look perfect again and won’t feel as sensitive.
  • Crack Repair: If you have a crack in your tooth that doesn’t extend into the root, it can be repaired with composite resin. Cosmetic dental bonding seals the area while restoring structural integrity to the tooth, keeping the inner tooth clean and comfortable.
  • Tooth Shape: Cosmetic bonding can also be used to change the shape of a tooth. Teeth can be made longer, wider, or more symmetrical—improving the look of your smile.

How Cosmetic Bonding is Performed

Since applying cosmetic bonding involves adding to the teeth instead of taking away material, these procedures are quite comfortable. After the teeth are carefully cleaned, polished, and dried, Dr. White will prepare the surface of the tooth to improve adhesion between the repair and the enamel. After the area is cleaned, rinsed, and dried again, Dr. White will choose a color of composite resin that matches your teeth, and sculpt it into place. After shaping the resin, a small handheld UV light is used to set the material. After the repair has hardened, it will be polished and shaped to blend in with the rest of the teeth. Cosmetic bonding is a relatively quick procedure, and many repairs can be performed in under 30 minutes. With proper care and maintenance, your cosmetic bonding will last many years.
