Tooth Bonding An Overview
Tooth bonding is a simple, effective solution used to address minor cosmetic blemishes. For dental bonding, we utilize composite resin material to offer patients a long lasting, natural looking solution for their dental concerns. As experienced restorative and cosmetic dentists, Dr. Dennis Garpetti and Dr. Brock Hyder may recommend dental bonding for patients with damaged teeth.
Dental bonding is used to address:
- Gaps between the teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Mishappen tooth
Dental bonding is a cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers. Dental bonding is ideal for younger patients, patients who don’t want to commit to porcelain veneers, and patients with minor cosmetic concerns.
LIFESmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers dental bonding for patients of all ages. Our dentist can work with you to create a comprehensive treatment plan to address your cosmetic and restorative needs.
Tooth Bonding What to Expect
After a complete oral exam and a discussion of your cosmetic goals, your dentist will prepare the teeth for bonding. Your dentist will thoroughly clean the teeth and apply a numbing agent to ensure you are comfortable throughout your treatment. To prepare the teeth for bonding, your dentist may need to gently remove a small amount of surface structure from the affected tooth.
Your dentist will mold the composite resin into place to create the desired aesthetic. Once the desired shape is reached, your dentist will cure the composite resin using a special light. Once cured, the tooth is polished to reveal a natural shine.
