Dental Bonding

There are a variety of cosmetic dental procedures for correcting or improving the appearance of teeth that are cracked, chipped, gapped, discolored or misshaped.

The procedure for applying the dental bonding material to the teeth is also quicker and less complicated than some other cosmetic dental procedures. Your Alexandria family dentist can discuss your situation and help you decide if dental bonding is the right option for you.

A composite resin material is used for dental bonding. The material is color matched to your surrounding teeth for a completely natural look. The material is applied directly to the problem area of the tooth in need. As the material dries, it becomes bonded to the tooth. Once completely dry, it will be part of the tooth and no one will be able to tell that any bonding material was applied. Dental bonding can address a variety of cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Repairing chipped teeth.
  • Conceal discolorations.
  • Repairing cracked teeth.
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Reshaping teeth that are irregular or oddly shaped.
  • Replacing silver amalgam fillings.
  • Covering and protecting roots exposed by receding gums.

Dental bonding can repair and correct a variety of cosmetic dental concerns. It is a convenient, affordable and effective option for transforming your smile.
