Bonding offers a conservative and often less expensive cosmetic alternative to lab created restorations such as veneers. Dental bonding is a procedure that uses a tooth-colored resin to cover flaws in your teeth. A thin coating of bonding agent is applied to the surface of your tooth, and the material is shaped and colored to look beautiful and natural. A high intensity light hardens the material and the surfaces are finely polished.
Dental Bonding can:
- Repair chipped or cracked teeth
- Restore discolored teeth
- Close gaps between the teeth
- Lengthen teeth
- Reshape teeth
- Protect a portion of the tooth’s root that is exposed due to receding gums
During your consultation, Dr. Martin will help you decide if dental bonding is the right choice for you. Bonding is a safe, affordable and attractive solution for many dental problems. However, in some situations, veneers and crowns would be a better solution.
