Dental BondingDental bonding offers a simple and non-invasive way to enhance your smile.

While a perfect smile is often something that we wish we had, for most of us there are small imperfections and flaws that often keep us from having that dreamy smile. However, that gorgeous set of teeth isn’t just for the Hollywood stars or rich and famous, even simple and inexpensive dental procedures can give you a better smile. Find out whether getting dental bonding from your Norcross, GA dentist could give you that picture-perfect smile.

About Dental Bonding

For those looking to hide minor dental imperfections, bonding gives patients the opportunity to repair their smiles without dealing with extensive cosmetic treatments. Dental bonding uses a tooth-colored resin (just like the material used to fill a tooth) and applies it to certain spots on the teeth to hide these problem areas.

The bonding material offers a putty-like texture when it’s applied, allowing your Norcross, GA dentist to mold and shape the material just right so that we not only hide flaws but also create the proper shape. Once the bonding has been properly shaped, we will direct a laser to these areas to permanently harden the resin to your teeth to improve the look of your smile.

When Dental Bonding is Used

Dental bonding could be a great option for you if you are dealing with any of these common dental issues:

  • A chipped or cracked tooth
  • To hide stains and discolorations
  • To change the shape of the tooth
  • To cover gaps between teeth

While bonding isn’t right for more severe cases, it can be great for minor to moderate dental alterations.

Benefits of Dental Bonding

Unless we are using the bonding to fill a cavity, we won’t need to use local anesthesia for your treatment. Being a painless, non-invasive procedure is one of the top reasons why bonding is so popular.

Furthermore, it affords patients the opportunity to revamp and enhance their smile’s appearance without invasive, expensive or time-consuming treatments. Plus, unlike with veneers or dental crowns, dental bonding can often be performed in just one visit.

If you are dealing with any of these dental flaws then dental bonding might be the right choice for you. To find out whether your smile is ready for dental bonding, contact Dr. Orson Baek, DDS, MS, your Norcross, GA dentist at Smart Family Dental Care today.
