Dental bonding is when a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the tooth and hardened with a special light, which "bonds" the material to the tooth to restore or improve a person's smile. Our dentist, Dr. Wing, can use bonding to close gaps or spaces between teeth cosmetically and reshape or recolor them. At Deep Ellum Advanced Dentistry, we perform dental bonding to provide many benefits, including improving the appearance of your teeth. It can also help to strengthen and protect the tooth from further damage. Bonding is often recommended in cases where the tooth is weakened or decayed.
The Advantages of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding offers instant results. In a single visit, your dentist can enhance the appearance of your teeth, giving you a radiant smile without a long waiting time.
Unlike some other cosmetic dental treatments, dental bonding is minimally invasive. It requires minimal tooth enamel removal, preserving much of your teeth's natural structure.
Dental bonding in Dallas is an affordable way to achieve a stunning smile makeover. It delivers impressive results without the investment required by some other cosmetic procedures.
Transforming your smile with dental bonding can significantly boost your self-confidence. You'll feel more comfortable sharing your smile in social and professional interactions.
The Procedure for Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is a quick and inexpensive way to improve the appearance of your teeth. It is also less invasive than other dental procedures, such as veneers or crowns.
Additionally, bonding can be done in one visit, unlike other procedures requiring multiple visits. First, our dentist in Dallas will roughen the affected tooth's surface and apply a liquid conditioner to help the bonding material adhere better. Then he will place the putty-like resin material onto the tooth and mold it into the desired shape. Once the material is molded, it is hardened with ultraviolet light. Finally, the dentist will polish and shape the bonded area to match the surrounding teeth.
Dental bonding can fix various cosmetic problems, such as chipped or cracked teeth, gaps between teeth, and discolored teeth. It can also be used to fill in cavities.
With proper care and regular brushing, flossing, and dental cleanings, bonding can last for several years. However, since it is less robust than your natural tooth enamel, it can stain over time. Also, the bond can chip or get damaged if you bite down on something hard.
Dental bonding is more than just a cosmetic procedure—it's an artistic transformation that restores confidence and radiance to your smile.
