Cosmetic Dental Bonding Enhances the Beauty of the Smile

Woman with a straight, white smileThe smile can have a big impact on a person’s confidence. Since the smile is often recognized as a person’s most noticeable feature, it is understandable that many people feel shy about sharing a smile that they feel is less than perfect. Cosmetic dentistry treatments focus on improving the appearance of the smile so that individuals can feel more confident in their appearance.

There are many cosmetic dentistry services that can address specific aesthetic blemishes, but few are as versatile as cosmetic dental bonding. Aside from its wide variety of uses, cosmetic dental bonding is non-invasive and affordable. These benefits of treatment make many patients good cosmetic dental bonding candidates at our Memphis, TN dental practice. Dr. Timothy Messer is happy to discuss the many uses of cosmetic dental bonding in further detail and help patients decide if this cosmetic dentistry treatment is right for them.


Dr. Messer customizes cosmetic treatment to the specific needs of each of his dental patients. It is important to find a treatment that meets each patient’s unique needs and desires, while keeping in mind factors such as the budget, convenience, and lifestyle of each patient. Cosmetic dental bonding is one of those treatments that is suitable for nearly all of our patients.

The non-invasive nature of treatment makes it a safe and virtually pain-free procedure. The cost of treatment is lower than most other cosmetic dentistry treatments and can fit into just about any budget. And, finally, this procedure can address such a wide range of blemishes and imperfections.

Some of the aesthetic flaws that can be improved through cosmetic dental bonding treatment include:

  • Tooth discoloration and staining: If a tooth has become discolored or there are surface stains present, cosmetic dental bonding can conceal these imperfections. The dental compound will be colored to match the patient’s adjacent teeth to create a natural, attractive appearance.
  • Chips, cracks, and fractures: Minor to moderate tooth injuries can be repaired through dental bonding treatment. The compound will fill in or replace missing tooth enamel to improve the appearance of the tooth and create a seal around the tooth’s sensitive nerves and tissues.
  • Gapped teeth: Gapped teeth can make an otherwise beautiful smile appear uneven. Dental bonding can fill in large gaps between the teeth to create the appearance of an even and symmetrical smile.
  • Cavities: Cavities are most commonly repaired with a dental filling. However, patients do not have to rely on unattractive metal fillings. The dental compound used in dental bonding treatment can restore a tooth damaged by minor tooth decay without compromising the appearance of the smile.

With all of the uses of cosmetic dental bonding, as well as the many advantages of this cosmetic treatment, it truly is one of the most universal methods for enhancing the beauty of the smile.
