Are there chips and cracks in your tooth enamel? Do you want to treat the imperfections in your smile? Tooth bonding may be the perfect solution for your cosmetic orv restorative needs. Midland dentist Dr. Michael Courter offers dental bonding as a dental treatment option to address areas of damage and discoloration.
Dental bonding treatment is similar to porcelain veneers because they can both address injured, weakened, or stained teeth. However, bonding often offers a quicker procedure and more economical treatment. Teeth bonding treatment benefits patients with smaller dental injuries who are looking for an efficient way to add structure to their tooth enamel.
What Can Teeth Bonding Treat?
Dental bonding material can cover multiple types of imperfections, including:
- Small gaps between teeth
- Chips and cracks in the enamel
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Yellowed, stained, and discolored teeth
Please contact our office if you have dental injuries, crooked teeth, or gaps in your smile that you would like to treat with dental bonding. We will take your budget, goals, and history into account to see if tooth bonding is the right treatment option for your needs.
Teeth Bonding Treatment
Dr. Courter first makes sure that the teeth are cleaned first before preparing them for bonding treatment. He prepares the teeth by shaving a small layer of the tooth enamel. Preparing the teeth in this way does not damage the enamel, but ensures that teeth provide a good surface for the bonding material. Then, Dr. Courter sculpts the bonding material onto the tooth. Once he ensures that it is the correct shade and shape, he will cure the bonding material using a special light.
Immediately following your treatment, stay away from pigmented beverages as well as hard and sticky foods as these can damage the bonded teeth. Bonded teeth remain bright and uniform when they are cared for properly. You can brush and floss bonded teeth just like your natural teeth to maintain your results.
