Dental bonding is often recommended to close gaps and spaces between teeth, improve teeth that are oddly shaped, restore teeth which are chipped or cracked or to improve the appearance of teeth which are severely discolored. This cosmetic treatment is among the most conservative ways to improve the appearance of your smile, as it involves little if any removal of your original tooth structure, and can be completed in a single appointment.
When you receive dental bonding, our dentists will use a tooth-colored resin material. This material is placed on the tooth structure and shaped to fit your tooth and correct cosmetic flaws. It is then hardened, trimmed and polished to provide you with a long-lasting solution for your smile.
Composite Dental Fillings
Dental fillings are a type of restoration used to repair minor to moderate tooth damage, such as cavities or minor chips. Our dentists uses only composite (tooth-colored) fillings, as they produce not only a more natural-looking result, but also a long-term solution which works with your tooth structure to strengthen it.
Your dental filling can be placed in just one appointment. First, we will remove any damaged or decayed tooth structure and clean your tooth thoroughly. The filling will then be placed and shaped to match the contours of your tooth. Our dentists will then harden the filling and polish it to complete your treatment.
If you have any questions about dental bonding or fillings, please feel free to contact our office. We will be happy to provide you with additional information and help you schedule a consultation with our dentists.
