There are situations where damage impacts your teeth, leaving you with a look you hate and wish you could fix. You may be able to do that. Dental bonding is one of the methods we use at Lovett Dental Meyerland Plaza to improve your smile. We encourage you to reach out to us right away if you have any concerns about your smile. Contact us today at 281-974-3434 to learn more.
How Does Dental Bonding Work?
Dental bonding can work for many needs and concerns. We can use it when you have problems such as:
- Chipped teeth from an injury
- Damage from accidents
- Dental hygiene problems
- Aging changes to the teeth
- Development problems with tooth growth
In short, we aim to provide you with both the cosmetic improvements you want and the restorative benefits of this procedure. Dental bonding is very cost-effective and can help improve a variety of concerns with your smile.
Your dentist will provide you with an exam to determine what your needs are. Then, he or she will apply a compositive resin to the tooth’s surface. This resin is colored to match your existing teeth, making it hard or even impossible to see.
Why Should You Invest in Dental Bonding?
There are many benefits to using dental bonding instead of simply ignoring the problem. It can improve the appearance of the tooth’s surface, such as getting rid of sharp edges that can cause tissue damage. It can also mask the appearance of discolorations or stains. You can consider it a tool to help improve the function and the look of your smile.
What Can You Expect from the Bonding Process?
We can provide dental bonding in our office within a short amount of time. During the procedure, we will abrade the surface of the tooth. We do this to make it a bit rougher so that the composite resin will stick to it. This practice helps to create a better bond between the material and your tooth.
From there, we will apply the resin material to the tooth and mold it to fit the desired shape. We can sculpt it with good detailing to create a very natural look. From there, we need to apply a specific light to the area. This light helps to cure and harden the material, causing it to bond to the tooth and allowing it to be a durable surface that you can use.
Most of the time, your dental bonding procedure will take just one appointment to complete. However, if you have numerous concerns, we may recommend additional treatments.
What Else Can Be Done to Improve Your Smile?
Dental bonding is just one of the services we can offer to improve the way your smile works. It is not the best option when you need to improve some concerns, but we have other procedures to help you. If you have a damaged tooth that cannot be repaired, we may recommend removing it so you can access some of these other procedures. Every situation is different. That is why we recommend coming in for a general dentistry appointment to determine the right way forward. If you have a chipped tooth, be sure to call us for emergency dental services.
