No matter how well you take care of your teeth, sometimes life happens and issues such as chips, breaks, or other accidents can occur that affect the appearance of your teeth. In other cases, patients have aesthetic issues such as gaps or misshapen teeth that they’d like to fix. For patients in the Middletown, IN area, cosmetic bonding at Titus Dentistry is a great choice for all of these issues, allowing you to affordably restore your teeth and enhance the appearance of your smile.

What is cosmetic bonding?

Most people are familiar with tooth-colored fillings; with cosmetic dental bonding, Dr. Titus uses this same material used in fillings–a white composite resin that can be shaded to match your existing teeth–to modify the shape, size, or length of your teeth.

Dental bonding is an extremely versatile and customizable procedure. Patients choose dental bonding for gaps between teeth, chips or small cracks in their teeth, adjusting the shape or size of teeth that look different from others, and even to hide stubborn stains and discolorations. Cosmetic bonding for front teeth can dramatically transform your smile—all within just a few hours in a comfortable chairside treatment. That means no need for uncomfortable dental impressions or waiting for weeks for a laboratory to fabricate your custom restorations. Dental bonding is:

  • Safe – there is usually no need to alter the structure of your teeth
  • Affordable – it is one of the most budget-friendly ways to modify the appearance of your teeth
  • Painless – it is so comfortable that there is no need for numbing
  • Convenient – in most cases, you can come in for one appointment and leave with your beautiful, transformed smile

What to expect

The first step in any cosmetic procedure at Titus Dental is for Dr. Titus to perform an in-depth evaluation and consultation to examine your current teeth and gums and talk with you about your desired end results. Based on your individual oral health and preferences, Dr. Titus will recommend one or more ways for you to reach those goals. If dental bonding is the right choice for you, the procedure starts by applying a small amount of conditioning gel to the teeth that will be treated. This slightly roughens the tooth surface so that the composite resin will better adhere to it. Then, Dr. Titus shapes the composite resin onto your tooth into an aesthetically pleasing shape and cures it with a special ultraviolet light. Finally, we polish it for a natural sheen that matches the rest of your teeth.
