Are there chips and cracks in your tooth enamel? Do you want to treat the imperfections in your smile? Cosmetic teeth bonding in our Midland, TX office may be the perfect option for your dental issues. Thanks to the variety of cosmetic dental services available today, correcting dental flaws and getting the smile of your dreams has never been easier! However, some treatments may seem excessive if you only need to fix one or two minor imperfections.
That’s why Dr. Michael Courter offers cosmetic dental bonding in the Permian Basin, TX, area. With this quick, easy, and affordable treatment, we can help you say goodbye to chips, stains, gaps, and more.
Dental bonding treatment is similar to porcelain veneers because they can both address injured, weakened, or discolored teeth. However, bonding often offers a quicker procedure and more economical treatment. Teeth bonding treatment benefits patients with smaller dental injuries looking for an efficient way to add structure to their teeth.
What Can Teeth Bonding Fix?
Cosmetic dental bonding uses a composite resin to improve the size, shape, and color of one or more teeth. It uses the same lifelike and durable material we use for tooth-colored fillings!
Composite resin bonds very well to the natural tooth structure. The composite material helps bonded teeth stay strong and in place for a decade or more with the proper care. It can also be shaded to match the color of the surrounding enamel for seamless results.
Cosmetic dental bonding can correct issues such as:
- Minor cracks and chips in the enamel.
- Stubborn discoloration and stains.
- Black triangles.
- Noticeable spaces.
- Small or worn-down teeth.
- Misshapen teeth.
- Slightly crooked teeth.
- Small gaps between teeth.
Don’t hesitate to contact our office if you have dental injuries, slightly crooked teeth, or gaps in your smile. Teeth bonding in our Midland, TX office can fix your teeth. We will also consider your budget, goals, and history to see if tooth bonding is the right treatment option for your needs.
Why Choose Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is similar to porcelain veneers because it’s a good treatment for various uses. Bonding can fix anything that porcelain veneers can fix. The difference is that it’s a temporary option, while veneers are a permanent solution.
A dentist can completely remove the bonding material if you change your mind. Almost every type of patient is eligible for dental bonding. We can also use teeth bonding to fix issues in children, even on their primary teeth because it’s completely removable by a dentist.
Because dental bonding is temporary, it’s also a more economical option. Teeth bonding is more affordable than veneers. Whether you have budget constraints or aren’t ready to commit to a permanent restoration, bonding can take care of it. Bonding material is malleable. Our dentist can mold it into just about any shape for your needs.

Teeth Bonding Treatment in Midland, TX
Before bonding treatment, Dr. Courter will ensure you are in good oral health. Dr. Courter will also ensure that bonding can address your restorative and cosmetic problems. Bonding does not treat large areas of wear or damage. Teeth bonding can fix tooth chips, cracks, gaps, or spaces between teeth.
After you and your Midland cosmetic dentist have determined that dental bonding is right for you, he will begin treatment.
It usually only takes one quick and easy appointment to improve your teeth! First, we’ll provide a dental cleaning to prepare your teeth for bonding treatment. Next, we will create a custom composite resin shade that matches your tooth color. Dr. Courter will use a shade guide so your bonded tooth matches adjacent teeth.
Then, Dr. Courter will roughen the tooth’s surface and apply a conditioning liquid to the tooth. This conditioning liquid ensures the bonding sticks to the tooth. Then, Dr. Courter will apply the bonding material to your tooth.
Once it looks like a natural part of your tooth, we’ll use a special UV curing light to harden it and bond it in place. Lastly, we’ll polish it up and ensure your bite feels comfortable. Then you’ll be ready to enjoy your new beautiful smile.
How to Care for Bonded Teeth
Stay away from pigmented beverages and hard and sticky foods immediately following your teeth bonding treatment. These foods and drinks can damage and stain the bonded teeth. Bonded teeth remain bright and uniform for a long time with proper care. You can brush, and floss bonded teeth like natural teeth to maintain results.
When brushing bonded teeth, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. Brushing too hard or using an abrasive paste can damage your teeth. Remember to visit us every six months so we can clean your natural and bonded teeth. We will examine your bonded teeth at these visits to ensure they stay bright.
