Dental Bonding: an Economical Alternative for a Beautiful Smile
If you have a chipped tooth, discolored front teeth, or gaps between the teeth that show when you smile, dental bonding can be an effective and economical alternative to other cosmetic dentistry solutions, such as porcelain veneers. Henderson NV cosmetic dentist Dr. Heeyup Ghim offers dental bonding at Black Mountain Dental to give patients choices when it comes to making the most of their smiles.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding utilizes durable, esthetic composite resin (the same material used for white fillings) to reshape teeth and revitalize their appearance.
What flaws can bonding erase?
Dr. Ghim applies custom-tinted composite resin bonding material to:
- Repair chipped teeth
- Brighten discolored teeth
- Change the width or length of teeth
What’s the process to apply dental bonding?
Dr. Ghim will prepare the teeth to be bonded by roughening them a bit to allow better adhesion of the composite resin. He’ll apply the resin and sculpt it into the desired shape. We’ll use a special light to harden the resin, and then Dr. Ghim will complete the finishing details to polish and shape the resin so that it looks naturally beautiful.
Why choose dental bonding?
Bonding is more economically priced than restorations crafted in a dental lab, including custom-made porcelain veneers. Because the bonding material can be prepared and applied at our Henderson NV dentist’s office, the process is typically completed in a single office visit. There’s very little alteration of natural tooth structure required for dental bonding, so anesthesia isn’t generally needed.
