If your smile is flawed by minor imperfections, our caring dentist may recommend a cosmetic dental service known as bonding. Dental bonding is a conservative, non-invasive way to enhance the beauty of your smile. During dental bonding, our dentist bonds a material called composite resin to your natural tooth structure. The composite resin is applied directly to the surface of your tooth, then sculpted and shaped to fit the natural shape and contours of the tooth. Once the resin has been perfectly shaped, we harden it and polish it for a natural, beautiful shine. Because composite resin is available in a variety of tooth-colored shades, Dr. Gary Wegmann can match the resin to your natural tooth color or use a slightly lighter shade if you would like to whiten the tooth. With good dental care and oral hygiene, bonding can last for several years and can be repaired and replaced as needed.
