Are you ready to find out whether dental bonding could be the best option for altering your smile?

While your smile may look great at first glance you know that you can’t stand the small discolorations, chips, and spaces between teeth. dental bondingWe understand your frustration. After all, these issues are visible but not so significant that they warrant dental crowns, veneers or even braces. If this sounds like you then you may want to talk to our Boca Raton, FL cosmetic dentist Dr. Alfred Huber about dental bonding.

If you are looking for an economical way to improve your smile then look to dental bonding. This cosmetic dentistry procedure uses a dental resin, the same material that is used to fill a tooth after a cavity, that is matched to the color of your tooth and is sculpted over teeth to hide common imperfections such as:

  • Discolorations
  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Broken teeth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Worn down, uneven or misshapen teeth

How is dental bonding performed?

Your Boca Raton dentist will first examine your smile to make sure that the goals you have for treatment can be achieved with this procedure alone (remember, dental bonding is a quick fix but it can’t handle all issues). If bonding is right for you we will then clean your teeth and apply a solution to the surface of your teeth (don’t worry; this doesn’t hurt!).

This solution will roughen the surface of the teeth to make the resin stay in place. Then the resin is applied and sculpted until we achieve the results you want. Then a special light is directed at the resin to harden it permanently to your tooth. With a final polish of the resin to give it a natural-looking sheen, your smile is good as new.

Dental bonding is an amazing way to fix minor dental flaws so that you can have a smile that you just can’t wait to show off. We know a healthy smile instills confidence and at Reserve Dental Group we want to provide Boca Raton, FL patients with the dental care necessary to give everyone the smile they deserve.
