Cosmetic bonding is one of the simplest procedures for our patients. Usually, little or no tooth structure removal is required, and in one visit you can have a wonderful new smile. However, understand that the artistry involved in crafting a great new smile with this material is extensive. Dr. LeBlanc’s smile artistry speaks for itself. The bonding material fuses to your teeth, producing a strong and durable bond, almost like your natural enamel. Spaces in your smile can be eliminated and your teeth lengthened, using this bonding material to contour a new smile. It comes in many shades including a shade for those who want a bright, white smile. Bonding is also a broader term used in modern dentistry. Veneers, porcelain crowns and porcelain inlays/outlays are all bonded to the teeth. Bonding allows the new restorative material to fuse with the teeth essentially making the new material and the natural tooth one strong, almost natural structure. Metal materials cannot forge this type of bond with the natural tooth. The porcelain and bonding combination also allows for better x-ray detection of decay.
