Dental bonding can quickly and effectively improve the appearance of your teeth, enhancing the cosmetics of your smile. Bonding is a noninvasive, fast, and lasting way to noticeably improve the look of your smile and to correct flaws in a tooth or multiple teeth. Our dentist may recommend dental bonding in order to:
- Fix chipped, cracked teeth
- Reduce gaps or spaces between teeth
- Cover discoloration on the surface of your teeth
- Restore teeth that have been worn down
- Hide exposed tooth roots
- Improve the appearance of misshapen or irregular teeth
A composite material, usually made of either plastic or resin, is chemically bonded onto an existing tooth and will require removing little, if any, of the original tooth. This means that your treatment will be comfortable and will involve no numbing shots nor drilling. One of the important advantages of bonding is that composite resins are available in many different shades to provide a match that is consistent with the natural color of your teeth. Dr. Mark Jensen and our friendly team at Truman Village Family Dental are committed to helping you achieve a gorgeous smile that you will love. Bonding is a fairly quick procedure, usually requiring less than one hour for your visit to our office.
