What is composite bonding?

Drs. Gary and Scott Pearl of Pearl Dental Care describe composite bonding as a resin material used by dentists to restore teeth. This material is cured and polished to look just like natural tooth enamel, making it a wonderful way to repair a chipped or cracked tooth. This material might also be used to cover up a gap between teeth or disguise a tooth with a slight imperfection. With composite resin bonding, patients can address an issue and maintain the results for several years before the restoration needs to be replaced.

Who is a good candidate for composite bonding?

Most patients with healthy smiles who are looking to address cosmetic imperfections may find themselves to be suitable candidates for composite bonding services. Our dentists will assess a patient’s smile and their current needs during a consultation appointment to determine if composite resin bonding can assist them.

Will dental bonding impact my teeth?

To place composite bonding, the dentist will sometimes need to file down a small area of the tooth and roughen it to allow the resin to stay in place. It is still more conservative than the removal of enamel needed for other treatments such as porcelain veneers and dental crowns, making it a reliable choice for many.

What alternatives are available?

Depending on the problem present, there are other alternatives that patients might want to consider. This includes porcelain veneers, orthodontic work, and dental crowns. Finding out which one is best requires an assessment with our team.
