Minor imperfections in your teeth can be repaired in no time with dental bonding. This versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment uses a safe, putty-like resin to fill in cracks and mask minor smile imperfections in your smile. Yardley cosmetic dentist Dr. Jennifer Kalochie can use dental bonding to noticeably improve the appearance of your smile in just one short office visit.
Is Dental Bonding for You?
As a stand-alone procedure or part of a total smile makeover, dental bonding is a very effective solution for smaller imperfections in your smile. If you would like to address any of the following cosmetic issues, you might be an excellent candidate for dental bonding:
- Small chips and cracks that don’t threaten tooth structure
- Isolated discolored spots
- Gaps between teeth
- Slightly misshapen teeth
- Unevenly sized teeth
If you have more extensive tooth damage that has the potential to affect your dental health, Dr. Kalochie might recommend a dental crown or a porcelain inlay/onlay as a stronger alternative to bonding.
Your Tooth Bonding Procedure
Your dental bonding procedure can be completed in one visit to our state-of-the-art office. Dr. Kalochie will choose the bonding shade that most closely matches your adjacent teeth. She will apply the bonding material gradually to build up the restoration and gently sculpt it into its desired shape. Dr. Kalochie will then harden the bonding material with a special light. After a professional tooth polish, your newly bonded tooth is ready to show off.
You can care for your bonded tooth just as you would any of your other teeth. Regular brushing and flossing will help ensure that your new restoration lasts a long time.
