Dental bonding is a great option for you if you have minor imperfections of your teeth that you want to cover to create a gorgeous, pleasant smile. Bonding is an easy treatment option that does not have to be costly, painful or time-consuming. Instead, it is generally performed in only one visit at our office in Brandon, saving you time and money.
Dental bonding uses composite resin, which is a plastic-like substance, to fill in a part of your tooth. This is similar to what is used to fill a cavity in your tooth. The resin is tooth-colored, which means that we can match the color correctly to your natural tooth color. Once the resin has hardened, it should be virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding tooth.
Bonding is most often done to correct cosmetic issues of your teeth. If you are unhappy with how your smile looks right now, we may be able to help you with this simple process. We often use it to fill in chips or cracks in the teeth that do not require additional dental work. We can cover stains and fill in gaps between the teeth. If your teeth are too short, too pointy or not the right shape for you, we can use bonding to change the shape of one or more of your teeth or to make certain teeth longer to match up with those that are above or below them.
This procedure usually takes only one visit to our Brandon office. There should be no discomfort from the cosmetic application of the resin to your teeth, and you should require no anesthesia. First, we will etch the surface of your tooth to make it rough enough for the resin to stick to it. We will then apply the resin, creating the right shape on your tooth. Finally, we harden the resin with an ultraviolet light.
Good dental bonding can help you feel better about your smile by restoring symmetry to your teeth. It can cover up extreme stains, fill in cracks and chips or fill in gaps. Plus, we can even use bonding to decrease discomfort on your teeth if your gums begin to recede causing sensitivity. When we recommend dental bonding for you, you can know that you are getting expert care at our clinic. We use the best composite resin, ensure that it matches your teeth exactly and choose only practitioners who have plenty of experience performing this task. Therefore, you can be assured that you will have beautiful, white teeth when you leave our office.
