Dental Bonding Services at Ames Family Dental
Do you have a tooth or teeth, that have been bothering you due to being chipped, misaligned, discolored, or just imperfect in general? Dental bonding is a process that can be the cosmetic dental procedure you never knew you needed to fix the teeth you have issues with.
Tooth bonding is a process in which an enamel-like material is applied to a tooth`s surface, sculpted to an ideal shape, hardened, and then polished for an ideal smile. This procedure usually can be accomplished in a single visit.
Imperfection to Perfection- What You Need to Know
Bonding is more susceptible to staining or chipping than other forms of restoration such as veneers. When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resins may be the material of choice.
Bonding also is used as a tooth-colored dental filling for small cavities and broken or chipped teeth.
In addition, bonding can be used to close gapped teeth or cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color and shape. Dental crowns, also known as caps, are used in cases where other procedures will not be effective. Crowns have the longest life expectancy of all cosmetic restorations but are the most time-consuming. If you are looking to restore chipped teeth or are generally unhappy with your smile, we are more than happy to help you at Ames Family Dental!
