Tooth bonding may be recommended for a variety of dental health or cosmetic concerns. A relatively painless and quick procedure, it can be an economical alternative to more expensive options such as dental veneers.
Dr. Donald Reid has the skill and experience as a cosmetic and restorative dentist to provide results from tooth bonding that will look natural, enhancing your smile while improving your overall dental health. Tooth bonding can effectively treat:
- Spaces between teeth
- Minor chips, cracks or damage to teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Tooth cavities
Tooth Bonding: What To Expect
The tooth bonding process is similar to a dental filling. Dr. Reid will apply a local anesthetic for your comfort during the procedure. He will then prepare the tooth by removing as little tooth structure as possible to accommodate the composite material comfortably.
Using a trained eye and artistic skill, Dr. Reid will mold the composite resin into place for a natural looking new tooth that will blend beautifully with your smile. The final step is to cure it using a special light that will permanently set the composite, followed by polishing for a natural luster.
