Composite resin bonding, often referred to as dental bonding or cosmetic bonding, is the use of resin materials that match the natural tooth enamel and can be used to address imperfections in the smile. Our dentists in San Jose, California, use this same material to address areas of tooth decay, seal the tooth, and treat the cavity directly. If you are ready to work with Dr. Natalie K. Provenzano to learn more about this and other cosmetic and restorative solutions, continue reading to discover how we can help you use composite resin bonding!
Composite resin is a tooth-colored plastic mixed material that Dr. Provenzano and Dr. Ram can use to change the appearance of your smile cosmetically. This material can restore chipped teeth, decayed teeth, and cracked teeth. Composite resin bonding can also be utilized to close gaps between teeth, which is why it is sometimes called “tooth bonding.”
There are many benefits of composite resin, which is why it has become such a popular solution for those looking to improve their smile. First, composite resin can be matched to the exact color of your natural teeth, making it a very effective cosmetic solution. Composite resin bonding is much less expensive than porcelain veneers and can usually be completed in just one visit to our office.
The only downside to composite resin is that it is not as strong as porcelain, so it is more likely to chip or break if you bite down on something hard. Additionally, composite resin can discolor over time, so you may need to have it touched up or replaced every few years. However, overall, the composite resin is an excellent solution for those looking to improve the appearance of their smile without breaking the bank.
