Small blemishes on your dentition can distract from the overall beauty of your smile. Luckily, minor chips, cracks, gaps, and bleach-resistant stains can be concealed conservatively using teeth bonding techniques. Teeth bonding is a procedure involving tooth-colored resin material similar to that used during routine dental fillings. The resin material is applied over your dental blemish and then hardened by blue wavelength light. The bonding material is then shaped down to your natural tooth leaving behind a cosmetically restored version of your natural tooth. This minimally invasive procedure can make a huge difference in the overall appearance of your natural smile and help you feel more confident when showing off your smile.
