If you are looking for a cosmetic dental treatment that is conservative and quick, our dentist may recommend dental bonding. Bonding is a simple, noninvasive way to correct flawed teeth and improve the overall appearance of your smile. Dr. Garner and Dr. Nichols may recommend teeth bonding to improve imperfections like:
- Chips and cracks in the teeth
- Stains and discoloration on the teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps and spaces between teeth
- Worn-down teeth
- Exposed tooth roots
To enhance your smile, our dentist uses a tooth-colored material called composite resin. Your doctor will either match the resin to blend in with your natural tooth color or will use a slightly lighter shade to brighten your smile. This resin is placed onto your tooth and is sculpted to fit the shape of your teeth. Once we have shaped the resin to enhance your smile’s appearance, we use a special light to harden the bonding. Finally, the bonding is trimmed and polished to blend in with your smile. This process typically involves little to no tooth preparation, so your visit to our office will be comfortable and painless. In most cases, we can finish this treatment in only appointment. For more information, we invite you to contact us today!
