Cosmetic Bonding

At Seattle Crown Hill Dental, we are pleased to offer cosmetic bonding as a versatile and effective solution to address a range of dental imperfections. Cosmetic bonding, also known as dental bonding, is a conservative and non-invasive treatment that can enhance the appearance of your teeth and create a more symmetrical, harmonious smile.

Cosmetic bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material to the surface of the teeth. This composite resin is carefully sculpted and bonded to the tooth, allowing our skilled dentists to correct various cosmetic concerns, such as chips, cracks, gaps, discoloration, and misshapen teeth. The composite resin can be precisely matched to the natural color of your teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking result.

The process of cosmetic bonding typically involves minimal tooth preparation, making it a conservative option compared to other restorative procedures. Anesthesia is usually not required, as the treatment is painless and non-invasive. Our experienced dentists will prepare the tooth surface, apply the composite resin, shape it to achieve the desired result, and then use a curing light to harden and bond the material to the tooth.

Advantages of Cosmetic Bonding

One of the significant advantages of cosmetic bonding is its efficiency. In most cases, the treatment can be completed in a single visit, providing instant results. The procedure is relatively quick, allowing you to achieve a transformed smile without the need for multiple appointments or extensive waiting periods.

Cosmetic bonding offers numerous benefits beyond its aesthetic improvements. It strengthens and reinforces the treated tooth, providing added durability and protection. The composite resin material is resistant to staining, helping to maintain the beauty of your smile over time. With proper care and regular dental check-ups, cosmetic bonding can last for several years, providing you with a long-lasting and attractive smile enhancement.
