Although Mother Nature does it best when it comes to teeth, a dental technique known as dental bonding is a close second! This treatment uses a special tooth-colored molding material bonded directly onto your teeth to rebuild damaged teeth or make cosmetic improvements to your smile.
The process is relatively inexpensive and is so natural looking, only we will know the difference! Best of all, a tooth can be bonded during a single visit to our office, and without anesthetic!
Whether or not dental bonding is a good choice for you depends on the size and the part of your tooth that needs to be treated.
- Dental bonding can be a great alternative to silver amalgam fillings, especially where appearance is important. You can replace old stained fillings in your front teeth with tooth-colored bonded fillings.
- We can build up a tooth that’s too small and fill in spaces between teeth that are too far apart.
- Bonding is also a perfect technique for fixing irregularly shaped teeth, for closing unsightly spaces between teeth, and to repair chips and fractures.
- Particularly stubborn stains on teeth can be masked by dental bonding. They virtually disappear!
