We Can Offer A One-Visit Fix With Dental Bonding

When a tooth is damaged, or develops esthetic issues with the shape or color, then you need cosmetic treatment. Fortunately, we can repair a tooth in a single visit with dental bonding. We can help you enjoy a beautiful smile in just one sitting.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Bonding

Question: What dangers will a damaged tooth pose?

Answer: When you chip a tooth, even if the damage appears minor, the tooth’s inner structure, also known as dentin, can be exposed. Bacteria can then bypass the outer layer of enamel through the chip and reach the detin, causing decay and eventually, an infection. Patients can then experience serious discomfort and in extreme cases, a risk of losing the tooth altogether.

Question: How do you place the bonding material?

Answer: We will prepare the material by color-matching it to blend with your tooth. We then clean the tooth, removing any decay in the process. We will also etch the surface to help the material better adhere to the tooth. We the apply the composite resin in multiple layers, curing the material with a light. As it cures, we can sculpt the tooth. Finally, we polish it for a more lifelike appearance.

Question: What issues can the treatment address?

Answer: In addition to fixing chipped teeth, we can also mask permanent teeth stains and close any exposed gaps between the teeth.

Question: Will you also perform dental contouring?

Answer: We can often offer contouring in the same visit. Contouring involves buffing way a small amount of tooth structure to address issues with the tooth’s surface, such as pits or grooves. We can also dull overly pointed teeth. Combined with bonding, we can transform the smile in one visit.
