Most American adults believe that a flawless smile is an important asset and that a better smile can actually improve their quality of life by making them more attractive, more appealing to the opposite sex and increasing their chance of career success.
If you are one of 90 % Americans, believing that a perfect smile can improve your quality of live and you have small gaps between your teeth or slightly crooked teeth, cosmetic bonding may be the ideal solution for your smile makeover.
What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material (a durable plastic material) is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve person’s smile. Little advance preparation is needed for dental bonding. Anesthesia is often not necessary unless the bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth. Dental bonding usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth to complete.
