Does Cosmetic Bonding Ruin Teeth?
Posted on 03/13/2023

When you need a Denver cosmetic dentist, Gentle Smiles of Colorado won't disappoint. Our doctor, Dr. Tim Wachuta, offers a variety of cosmetic dental procedures, such as teeth whitening, veneers, dental implants, and composite bonding, also known as cosmetic bonding. But, what is cosmetic bonding, and will it ruin your teeth? Let's look closer at the cosmetic bonding process.

What Is Cosmetic Bonding?

When you choose the cosmetic bonding procedure, a dentist will apply tooth-colored dental resin over your teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. The procedure is fast and offers quite a few benefits.

  • Single Visit: Our dentist, Dr. Tim Wachuta, can perform the procedure in just one visit. This is especially beneficial for those who are busy or for those on a tight schedule.
  • Safe: It's a safe procedure as there is no cutting involved and very little resurfacing of your original teeth.
  • Affordable: No surgery is involved, which makes it an affordable procedure.
  • Natural-Looking Results: The resin is made to match the color of your teeth, giving you a natural-looking smile.

Will Cosmetic Bonding Ruin Your Teeth?

Remember that cosmetic bonding involves resin being layered over your teeth. To prepare the surface of your teeth, our dentist must roughen each one slightly and apply a conditioning liquid. This step is necessary for the resin to bond with your teeth. However, your natural teeth are affected minimally.

The resin is then hardened and shaped to your teeth. Over years, the resin can become discolored or even chipped. However, your enamel beneath the resin will not be affected.

Who Needs Cosmetic Bonding?

If you have permanent stains on your teeth that you're not happy with or that a whitening procedure won't fix, cosmetic bonding can help. Here are some other reasons you may consider getting cosmetic bonding:

  • Chipped or Cracked Teeth: If you have a small chip or a small crack in your teeth, a cosmetic bonding procedure can cover it up.
  • Misshapen Teeth: Not happy with how your teeth are shaped? Cosmetic bonding can reshape your teeth and give you a nicer smile.
  • Gaps: Cosmetic bonding can cover up your gaps, giving you more confidence when you talk and smile.
  • Protection for Your Teeth: If the roots of your teeth are exposed, cosmetic bonding can help cover up the sensitive areas and protect your teeth.
