Can Dental Bonding Cover Discolored Teeth?

Posted .

Are you searching for a way to fix a damaged or discolored tooth? Do you want a more affordable option than some of the other restorations? We would like to tell you about dental bonding, which we can offer our patients, and how it can benefit your smile.

We use a composite resin for dental bonding because it can bond to your tooth and may be polished and shaped to blend in with your smile. This therapy might be chosen often for its cosmetic benefits because it can be used to cover blemishes, alter a tooth’s shape or close small gaps between teeth.

Dr. Joseph Kayne can use a guide to help him determine which resin shade can match your tooth the best. Then your tooth may be etched your tooth, ever so slightly, to create a rougher surface, and a light coating of a liquid can be applied to help the bonding material stick. Once the tooth is ready, the resin can be applied, shaped, smoothed and hardened with either a laser or light.
