Dental bonding is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures used in the Richmond area, and it’s not difficult to see why. There are many common dental problems that dentists in the Bon Air, Midlothian, and Richmond areas can treat with bonding.
Bonding uses a very sturdy resin material that is tooth-colored. The material is applied to the teeth while it is soft, much like putty, and then it is set with a special light. This hardens the material, which then bonds with the tooth and can be shaped and polished as necessary.
Dentists will usually consider dental bonding in the following cases:
1. Repairing decayed, chipped, or cracked teeth
2. Filling in spaces between teeth
3. Protecting teeth after gums recede
4. Changing the general shape of teeth
5. Repairing discoloration as part of a complete smile redesign.
