Dental Bonding

At Brittney K. Craig, DMD, we believe that every smile is unique and deserves to shine. Dental bonding is a versatile and effective cosmetic procedure that can transform your smile by addressing various imperfections. In this brief guide, we'll explore what dental bonding is, how it works, and the benefits it can offer you.

What Is Dental Bonding?  Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin material to the teeth. This versatile material can be shaped, polished, and bonded to your natural teeth to improve their appearance and function.

 

Why Choose Dental Bonding? Dental bonding is a popular choice for enhancing your smile because it can address a wide range of cosmetic issues, including:

  • Repairing Chipped or Cracked Teeth: Bonding can restore the natural look and strength of teeth with minor damage.

  • Closing Gaps Between Teeth: Bonding can be used to close small gaps and spaces between teeth.

  • Correcting Discoloration: Stained or discolored teeth can be transformed to match the shade of your surrounding teeth.

  • Reshaping Irregular Teeth: Bonding can be used to reshape teeth, creating a harmonious and balanced smile.

  • Minimizing Tooth Sensitivity: In some cases, bonding can help reduce tooth sensitivity by covering exposed dentin.

The Bonding Procedure: The dental bonding process is typically quick and painless, often requiring only one visit to our office. Here's what you can expect:

  • Consultation: We'll begin with a consultation to discuss your goals and determine if dental bonding is the right option for you.

  • Preparation: Minimal preparation of the tooth surface is required. Anesthesia is usually not necessary unless bonding is being used to fill a cavity.

  • Bonding: The composite resin material is carefully applied and shaped to match the natural contours of your teeth.

  • Curing: A special light is used to harden and bond the resin to your teeth.

  • Final Touches: After the material is set, we'll trim, shape, and polish it to achieve a seamless and natural appearance.

Enjoy Your Stunning Smile: Dental bonding can provide immediate results, allowing you to leave our office with a beautiful, rejuvenated smile. With proper care and maintenance, bonding can last for many years.

 

At Brittney K. Craig, DMD, we are committed to helping you achieve the smile you've always wanted. If you're considering dental bonding or have any questions about the procedure, please don't hesitate to reach out.
