Tooth Bonding Charleston, SC

Tooth BondingAn Overview

Tooth bonding can serve both cosmetic and restorative purposes, depending on your specific needs or concerns. Highly trained and experienced cosmetic dentists, Dr. James Dickert and Dr. Agatha Lynn can provide natural looking results with tooth bonding to treat a range of concerns:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

Tooth bonding is often an economical alternative to porcelain veneers. In many cases, it can be covered by your dental insurance. Dental bonding can be the perfect solution for minor cosmetic issues, young patients or adult patients not ready for the commitment required with dental veneers. Tooth bonding, though not considered a permanent restoration, can last for 10 years or more with good dental care and oral hygiene.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

The tooth bonding process is similar to that of a dental filling and is completed during a single visit to our Charleston dentist office.

We will numb the area with a local anesthetic and prepare the tooth by removing a very small amount of tooth structure for accommodating the bonding material. We will skillfully sculpt the color matched composite resin to the surface of your tooth, blending it with your existing teeth and overall appearance for an aesthetically pleasing result.

The process is completed by curing the material with a special light and polishing the surface for a natural luster and smooth appearance.
