Dental bonding is a handy treatment when you have a decayed, chipped, cracked, discolored, short, misshapen, and unattractive tooth. It involves applying a tooth-colored resin to the tooth and hardening it with a special light. This can treat and reshape your tooth to give you the healthy and attractive smile you're looking for. If you're interested in treating a tooth with dental bonding in College Station, Texas, please don't hesitate to give Long Family & Cosmetic Dentistry a call and schedule an appointment. We are more than happy to examine your smile and determine if this is the best treatment for you.
Dental bonding is a simple, conservative way to improve the appearance of your smile. Our skilled dentist and team place a composite resin material directly onto the tooth structure during the bonding process. Because the resin is moldable and putty-like when first applied, we can shape and sculpt it to fit your tooth and correct flaws in the tooth's appearance. The composite resin is then hardened, trimmed, and polished to provide a lasting, aesthetic restoration for your smile. Dental bonding typically requires just one visit to our welcoming dental office. Because this treatment usually necessitates little to no tooth preparation, you can rest assured that your visit will be quick and comfortable.
Our dentist may recommend dental bonding to close gaps and spaces between teeth, improve misshapen teeth, lighten stained or discolored teeth, or restore chipped or cracked teeth. We will use a shade of composite resin that matches your teeth' original color for a natural-looking effect. If you would prefer, we can use a slightly lighter shade to whiten your teeth' color.
