Bonding can yield significant results in just one painless office visit. Bonding hides natural flaws by placing a thin plastic coating on the visible surface of the teeth.
A putty-like bonding material is applied to the surface of a treated tooth. The bonding material is then shaped and colored to produce a natural look and blend with the surrounding tooth surface. The surface is then hardened, smoothed, and polished by a high intensity light.
Bonding can lighten stains, improve crooked or malformed teeth, and close gaps between teeth. It can change the shape and color of a tooth, or many teeth to improve the appearance of your smile.
Disfigured, damaged, fractured, worn or decayed teeth can also be restored in a single visit to our office.
Techniques for tooth-colored restorations have improved drastically in the last twenty years. We now have higher quality materials, improved material adhesion, and less invasive tooth preparation techniques. These new materials are more cost-effective and can be color-matched and contoured to look like natural teeth.
