Do you have a chipped or damaged tooth? Are there minor cosmetic concerns about your smile?
There are several dental treatments available for repairing tooth damage and decay. Tooth bonding is often the most economical choice for minor concerns, especially in younger patients. Tooth bonding can offer exceptional results that will not only improve your oral health but boost your smile confidence. A relatively simple procedure, tooth bonding is completed in a single visit with minimal discomfort.
What Is Tooth Bonding?
Tooth bonding or direct composite bonding is a conservative method of treating minor cosmetic concerns, tooth damage, and tooth wear. Using a biocompatible composite material, Dr. Sinclair and Dr. Reichley can reshape, change the color or repair a tooth. The material is color-matched to your existing teeth and has an adhesive agent so that it will adhere to the tooth surface once cured.
Similar to a dental filling, tooth bonding is designed to adhere directly to the tooth surface with minimal tooth prep needed. Once the area to be treated is cleaned and any damaged or decayed structure is removed, the composite material is placed on the tooth. As experienced cosmetic dentists, Drs. Sinclair and Reichley can skillfully mold the material onto your tooth for a beautiful result.
