Tooth BondingAn Overview
Tooth bonding can serve both cosmetic and restorative purposes, depending on your specific needs or concerns. This procedure can provide beautiful results for those who want to improve the appearance of their smile. A tooth that has been bonded will give the patient a healthier looking and brighter smile. With proper care and maintenance, a bonded smile can last many years. 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.
Tooth bonding may be recommended to treat:
- 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.
Dental bonding is a quick and conservative treatment to enhance the appearance of the smile. The procedures can be completed in one office visit and typically requires no discomfort or anesthesia.
Tooth bonding is a procedure where tooth structure is added but not removed. This allows patients to receive other cosmetic treatment in the future or reverse their dental bonding if needed. In some cases, patients choose bonding because it is a cost-effective, natural-looking solution for their needs.
