For patients looking for a Doylestown cosmetic dentist that takes their budgetary concerns into account when treatment planning, contact us! Dr. Elyce Link-Bindo offers cosmetic services for all budgets, including popular cosmetic dental bonding.

Cosmetic bonding takes advantage of the highly versatile composite material used in dental fillings. Since it comes in a variety of shades and our dentists polish it in the final stages of restoration, to the untrained eye, it will look just like your natural tooth and will not leave a permanent scar on your smile.

Aside from fillings, we can use composite to make small repairs to your natural teeth. Dental bonding actually adds to your tooth structure, making it a conservative form of treatment that avoids dramatically prepping your teeth. 

Improvements with Dental Bonding:

  • Chips in your teeth – Chips can expose your teeth to decay and collect stains, making your teeth look damaged and dark.
  • Small gaps between teeth – If you have a gap between two teeth that makes you feel self-conscious, we can sometimes use cosmetic bonding to fill it in.
  • Reshaping a tooth – If you were born with a tooth that is differently shaped or if one of your teeth sustained damage, we can often give your tooth a new shape using cosmetic bonding.

It is important to remember that if you are planning to whiten your teeth, it is always best to do so prior to any restorative work since your restorative dentistry will not whiten like your natural teeth.

Dental Bonding in Doylestown PA

Cosmetic bonding is a great way to make small improvements to your smile. In some cases, a dental crown or veneer may be the recommended treatment because bonding is not enough to achieve the results you want. As your Doylestown cosmetic dentist, you can always count on us to provide you with all of your treatment options so that you can make a great choice regarding the future of your smile.
