Dental Bonding for Cosmetic and Restorative Purposes

by Dr. Kiyan Mehdizadeh DMD|August 12, 2016

Dental bonding could be the answer if you are unsure about dental veneers. Dental bonding can be used to for restorations, such as tooth colored fillings or repairs, but can also be used for cosmetic bonding such as resin veneers.

When done properly, dental bonding can deliver optimum results that are both esthetic and long lasting.

Cosmetic Bonding

Dental veneers can straighten crooked teeth and whiten teeth. Dental veneers are also used to reshape teeth, repair small fractures, and chips or to improve the overall appearance of your smile. Floss Dental are the experts when it comes to resin veneers giving you a beautiful and natural looking smile.


Tooth colored fillings are now the preferred filling method when it comes to cavities. Resin fillings are a great option for filling small cavities or replacing old mercury fillings. Resin can also be used to repair small fractures or chips. If you have a larger filling, Floss Dental may recommend a porcelain filling and a dental crown.

Resin versus Porcelain

Although the material used for dental bonding in San Diego is a strong resin polymer, it is more absorbent than porcelain. That means if you are having all of your teeth bonded, you will have to schedule more maintenance such as chip repair, stain removal and polishing. If you are restoring multiple teeth, you may want to consider porcelain.

Because dental bonding is a detailed procedure, you will need to find a good dentist, such as Dr. Mehdizadeh who is skilled in the art of both cosmetic and restorative dental bonding. Poor dental bonding can cause fillings to fall out, fail, crack, or leak. A poor bonding job could also cause tooth sensitivity.

A beautiful smile boosts your self-confidence and can improve both your social and work life. According to WebMD, people who smile more have better self-esteem making them more attractive to others. People with white and bright smiles are also more apt to get that job or promotion.
