Lemoore area patients ask about teeth bonding

Teeth Bonding Dental Procedure, Teeth Bonding Lemoore Imperfections of the smile don’t always require costly cosmetic dental work. Instead, many Lemoore patients with stained, fractured, or gapped teeth can speak to their dental team about the benefits of dental bonding.

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding, sometimes called teeth bonding, is done quickly and easily right in the dental office. At Hanford Family Dental, we provide bonding in practically minutes. The entire procedure is done using a material called composite resin. Composite resin is a clay-like material used by dentists to address imperfections of the smile. It is applied onto a tooth and is shaped in place. A light is used to harden it, and then it is filed down and polished. At this point, it looks just like natural tooth enamel and can disguise problems on the anterior teeth.

Are there alternatives to teeth bonding?

There is an alternative that can be used by patients at Hanford Family Dental. This is the placement of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a great option as well, but they do cost more. Composite resin bonding is done in just one appointment versus two needed for veneers, and it is reversible. However, unlike porcelain veneers, composite resin bonding is not stain resistant and will only last a few years. Patients should take this – as well as cost – into consideration when determining which is more appropriate.
