Fill in Your Dental Gaps with Composite Bonding Dental Office

by | Jun 7, 2022 | Dental Care

Born with a gap in your teeth? Maybe your baby teeth fell out but your adult teeth came in and created obvious gaps. Maybe you have a chipped tooth that leaves a little “window” into your mouth. Whatever the situation, composite bonding in Glenview dental clinics can help.

What Is Composite Bonding for Glenview Patients?

Composite bonding is similar to a dentist “coloring” in the gaps and chips in your teeth with a composite resin. The dentist uses the hard dental resin to form the missing piece of a chipped tooth or fill in a gap between two teeth. The gap cannot be more than a couple millimeters. The resin is hardened in place with a special bonding tool. Then the dentist carefully shapes the hardened resin so that it looks perfectly natural. The resin creates the appearance that you never had a gap or a chip, and your smile ends up looking perfect.

How Long Does It Take to Do Composite Resin?

Surprisingly, in the same amount of time that it takes to fill one or two cavities, composite bonding is done and over. It is a cosmetic procedure that enhances your appearance, so it may not be covered by insurance. However, the results are worth the cost, especially if you just have one or two teeth covered and shaped in the composite resin.
