Tooth bonding is a popular cosmetic procedure offered by cosmetic dentists in Charlotte NC. In simple terms, it involves coating part of a tooth with a special material, which then hardens and bonds to the actual tooth structure. As a result, tooth bonding helps to cover up tiny tooth blemishes or damage.

In the skilled hands of your Charlotte cosmetic dentists at Ballantyne Center for Dentistry, the bonding resin can be used just like an artist uses modeling clay. With a few planned adjustments, experienced cosmetic dentists like Dr. Christian Yaste and Dr. Joe Hufanda, have managed to completely restore their patients’ smiles. In other cases, cosmetic tooth bonding is used to create a whole new look by covering up natural imperfections in teeth.
When is tooth bonding used?

In cases of worn-down teeth, dental bonding can protect the teeth and make them look even. Cosmetic tooth bonding is also used to cover up stains or blemishes in teeth. Once the resin has set, the teeth look years younger.

This makes it a popular choice for quick fixes on a budget. If the results work, patients can always opt for upgrades to porcelain veneers.
