If you’re unhappy with some aspect of your smile, but don’t feel like you can afford a cosmetic procedure, think again. Bonding is an economical way to disguise common problems such as chips or gaps to give you the smile you have always wanted. Dr. Laventure and Dr. Schuyler can complete this procedure in most cases without even having to use anesthesia.
Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Bonding
The dentists at Franklin County Dental take special care to ensure that the bonding material closely matches the natural shade of your teeth. We understand that our clients don’t want their dental treatments to recognizable in their smile, so we always take great care to match your natural tooth shade. The composite resin we use for dental bonding is a durable material that naturally resists staining. After treatment, your bonded tooth will look and function just like the rest of your teeth.
Dental bonding is an excellent option to repair the following cosmetic dental issues:
- Chips and cracks
- Slightly misshapen teeth
- A larger than normal gap between two teeth
- Worn fillings or unattractive silver amalgam fillings
- Teeth stained by coffee, smoking, dark colored foods, medication, or just normal aging
- Loose teeth
The Dental Bonding Process
Dr. Laventure or Dr. Lewis will first gently sand your tooth, and then apply a conditioning liquid and the resin. It only takes a few minutes for the material to harden, and with proper attention to oral hygiene, the bonding can last up to 10 years! This procedure is quick and painless and will provide a huge boost to your confidence when you smile.
