Are your teeth worn, chipped, or broken? If you wish for a more beautiful smile, ask Dr. Travis E. Hampton about dental bonding in Covington, Georgia. Dental bonding is a process in which one of our dentists applies a tooth-colored resin to the front of your teeth, where it bonds in place. If you have any of the following smile imperfections, dental bonding may be for you:
- Decayed teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Teeth that appear too short
- Stained teeth
- Exposed tooth roots
If you choose dental bonding, our dentists will first select a shade of resin material using a shade guide. The front surface of the tooth is etched and has a conditioning liquid applied so the material will bond well to your teeth. Our dentists then apply the material to your teeth. The material is molded and smoothed to the ideal shape. A special light or a laser is used to harden the resin material. Then our dentists will trim, shape, and polish the dental bonding material.
We invite you to contact Alcovy Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today to learn if dental bonding is right for you and to schedule your next appointment with one of our dentists.
