What Dental Bonding Can Do For Your Smile

Want to get rid of small cracks, discolorations or even gaps between teeth? Dental bonding could help!

It’s amazing just how much cosmetic dentistry can do for your smile. Of course, not everyone has the budget to get all the different kinds of cosmetic treatments they may want. Fortunately, our Sudbury, MA cosmetic dentist Dr. Reina Garcia is making it easier to hide common imperfections and improve the look of your smile with simple, inexpensive dental bonding.

Dental bonding (sometimes also referred to as tooth bonding) involves using a tooth-colored resin to cover over minor dental flaws to transform your smile for the better. Bonding is a great option for people looking to improve the appearance of a tooth or even multiple teeth. This is an inexpensive, non-invasive and completely painless cosmetic procedure, which makes it a popular choice for patients in Sudbury looking to cosmetically enhance their smiles.

The bonding material we use is applied over the tooth to cover your flaws. Since the resin is moldable it’s easy to trim and shape it around the tooth until we are able to get a look you are happy with. Then a high-intensity light is used to harden the resin to your tooth.

Dental bonding is a great way to:

  • Repair a decaying tooth (to fill cavities)
  • Cover chips or cracks in your teeth
  • Hide discolorations and severe stains
  • Cover gaps between teeth
  • Make teeth appear longer
  • To cover exposed tooth roots (which can cause tooth sensitivity)

When you come into our office for dental bonding know that it can take anywhere from about 30 minutes to one hour to complete. If you want to get more than one tooth treated with dental bonding you may also need to come in for more than one visit.

Dental bonding is a great way to boost your smile’s appearance for the better. Want to find out if you should get dental bonding? Call Millbrook Smiles in Sudbury, MA today to learn more.
