Tooth bonding is a simple dental treatment used to address minimal cosmetic dentistry concerns. The dental bonding material is a composite resin that we mold and sculpt onto the tooth. To give our patients the most natural-looking result, we color-match this material with natural teeth. Dental bonding can change the shape, color, and position of the teeth Our goal is to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile with teeth bonding treatment in our Leland, NC dental office.
What Does Dental Bonding Treat?
At Waterford Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we use dental bonding to:
- Close spaces and gaps between teeth
- Fix chips, cracks, or damage to teeth
- Brighten stained or discolored teeth
- Lengthen short teeth
Contact our office if you want to address your cosmetic concerns with dental bonding. This treatment is an affordable option for patients who want more uniform and bright smiles. Compared to options like porcelain veneers, dental bonding requires less tooth preparation and a quicker treatment time.
Dental Bonding Treatment
Tooth bonding is typically performed in just one visit to our Waterford office. We will prepare the surface of the tooth or teeth receiving treatment by removing some of the tooth enamel from the front of the tooth. Then we apply the tooth-colored resin and sculpt it into the desired shape. The resin is cured with light after we make sure that it feels comfortable and looks natural.
In many cases, tooth bonding is covered by dental insurance. Our office will work with you to determine your portion of the treatment cost and submit it for your direct reimbursement. Dental bonding can last for multiple years and may require small repairs over time. For the best results, continue to care for your teeth and visit our office for biannual visits.
