Bonding (Resin Composite)
Bonding is a conservative treatment option that can provide major changes in the appearance of your teeth. The material mimics that of natural enamel and can be used to repair chips, close gaps, alter color, and improve alignment.
Direct composite bonding is used to recreate a smile in an additive manner, requiring minimal (or zero) tooth reduction. Direct bonding, in the hands of a skilled operator, is less costly than porcelain veneers or crowns. Additionally, with proper maintenance, they can be a long-lasting alternative.
Transitional bonding is used for anything from mock-up to full-mouth rehabilitation. It’s called transitional because it allows the patient to segue into more permanent dentistry in an affordable fashion (or as the treatment sequence demands). Plus, it allows your dentist time to work out any bite-related and esthetic issues. Transitional bonding is an important tool in the skill-set of an accomplished cosmetic dentist.
