Tooth bonding, also known as dental bonding, is an economical way to address a number of common cosmetic and general dental problems. Dr. Jean Morency may recommend tooth bonding as an alternative to porcelain veneers or dental crowns in the treatment of minor issues, such as teeth that are:
- Chipped or cracked
- Irregularly sized
- Slightly gapped
How dental bonding may be used to enhance and protect your smile is best determined during your appointment with one of our experienced Houston dentists.
The Dental Bonding Process
Dental bonding is a minimally invasive treatment that can be completed in a single visit to our Houston dental office. This procedure uses composite resin that is applied to the surface of teeth and hardened with a special light to ensure absolute strength. Minor roughing of the teeth being treated is required before resin is applied. This gives the bonding material a better surface to adhere to and helps prolong the results of your treatment.
Dental bonding can be shaded to match adjacent teeth in color and shaped to create a completely natural looking restoration. Both Dr. Morency are skilled and experienced cosmetic dentists who take great care when applying tooth bonding to help ensure the best looking end results.
Dental bonding is less expensive than some other cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments, but it is not as reliable as options such as porcelain crowns or veneers. During your consultation with Dr. Morency all of your options will be discussed and those best suited to meet your specific needs will be determined.
