Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied by your dentist and adhered to the surface of the tooth, often without reducing the structure of the tooth. The bonding material is sculpted by the dentist so it resembles a natural tooth, correcting chips, broken, stained or discolored teeth and in some cases correcting gaps.
Q: I just want my smile to look good. What are some options to help the appearance of my smile?
A: You are not alone. Most people want to have a nice smile since it is the first thing others notice about them. You may be interested in a few minor adjustments or you may have concerns that need more attention. Some smiles can be enhanced with simple whitening or bonding treatments. Other smiles need porcelain veneers, crowns, or bridges; gum contouring; periodontal therapy or a combination of all these techniques. Dr. Ebright or Dr. Smart will suggest a treatment plan for you based on your goals, areas of concern, and the overall condition of your oral health. Contact us for a smile evaluation to determine what course of action will produce the best solution for you.
Years of wear and tear, injury, or poor care can hurt the look and function of your teeth.
