Teeth Bonding: Restoring Your Smile
Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses tooth-colored composite materials to improve the appearance of teeth and provide tooth restoration for damaged teeth. Dental Associates of Lake Jackson provides dental bonding procedures in Texas to patients who want to enhance the way their teeth look or correct cracked/damaged teeth. The process of dental bonding includes applying the composite material to the surface of the specific tooth and then using a special light to harden the material, causing it to bond to the actual tooth. The hardened material can then be reshaped and polished by our dentists to ensure that the tooth matches the surrounding teeth and your desired look.
What Is Dental Bonding Used For?
Dental bonding is a quick and affordable cosmetic dental treatment that most often can be completed by our dental team in one visit. The procedure itself usually takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. Dental bonding can be used to repair decayed teeth by using the composite materials to fill cavities. Bonding can also be used to cover and protect tooth roots that have become exposed due to gum recession. Additionally, dental bonding is commonly used to correct a variety of aesthetic concerns, including:
- Cracked or Chipped Teeth — Our dental team uses dental bonding to restore a cracked or chipped tooth’s shape and appearance.
- Gaps Between Teeth — Bonding is often used to fill in gaps between teeth to create a more even and comprehensive smile.
- Discolored Teeth — The process of placing tooth-colored composite material over the existing tooth allows our dentists to correct discolored teeth. Bonding allows us to match the color of the surrounding teeth.
- Misshaped Teeth — After the composite material is placed on the existing tooth, our dentists will polish and reshape the tooth to match the surrounding teeth or your desired aesthetic look.
