Dental bonding is an easy and affordable cosmetic dental procedure for correcting imperfections in teeth. Cracked, chipped and irregular teeth can be dramatically transformed to create the beautiful smile you desire. The bonding material is applied directly to the problem tooth. As it dries and hardens, it bonds with the tooth and blends in. At Hill-Davis Dental Group, dental bonding can be performed by Dr. Jimmy Hill or Dr. Camie Davis, your Lubbock, TX, dentists.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding improves the appearance of teeth by concealing and correcting visible imperfections, such as cracks or discolorations. A resin material is used for dental bonding and is applied over problem areas on teeth to correct or conceal them. As the material dries and hardens, it permanently bonds with the tooth. Once dry, the new bonded area will look like part of the natural tooth. Further, the resin material used for dental bonding is available in several different shades and can be matched to a patient’s existing teeth for a truly natural look.
Your Lubbock dentists, Dr. Hill and Dr. Davis, can help you determine if dental bonding is the right choice for giving you the smile you want. There are other cosmetic dental options, such as veneers and dental crowns, for correcting imperfections in teeth. However, dental bonding tends to be more affordable, less complicated and is a quicker procedure. In addition to correcting various cosmetic concerns, dental bonding serves several functional purposes as well. Dental bonding can serve the following cosmetic and functional purposes:
- Cover chips and cracks in teeth
- Conceal stains or discolorations
- Fill in gaps between teeth
- Correct the shape of irregular teeth
- Replace silver amalgam fillings (in some cases)
- Cover and protect exposed tooth roots where the gums have receded
Dental bonding can help your smile in several ways. Whether you wish to repair chipped and cracked teeth or to conceal discolorations, dental bonding can help.
