Feel Better About Your Smile With Bonding Treatment

If your smile is suffering from a few dings and dents, then bonding may be the treatment for you. Your dentist can use composite resin material to repair these imperfections and give you an improved smile, usually in just one visit. Here’s how the bonding process works:

  • We’ll select a shade of resin that matches your teeth so the repair blends in.
  • Your dentist will sculpt the material into place to correct chips, cracks, small gaps, worn teeth, or misshapen teeth.
  • They will harden the resin with an ultraviolet light.
  • Your dentist will make any final adjustment to the repair so that your bite is perfect.
  • The resin will be polished so it looks as natural as possible.

Teeth Veneers Are a Good Option for More Extensive Damage

During your initial consultation, we’ll evaluate your smile to see if you’re a good candidate for dental bonding. If your teeth have experienced more extensive damage, if you have larger gaps in between your teeth, or if you want to make multiple changes, dental veneers may work better for you.

Veneers are thin wafers of material that are cemented to the front side of flawed teeth to make them more appealing. They can be made from ceramic or composite resin, depending on your wants as well as the location of the repair. Composite resin veneers are generally more affordable, although ceramic veneers last longer. Our team will help you decide which material will work best for your situation.
