Close the gaps between your teeth!
Bonding is a conservative, simple and well-proven restorative technique that painlessly corrects objectionable spaces and tooth shapes with good predictability with almost no removal of tooth structure. Bonding is the choice restoration to correct:
- Spaces between teeth
- Misshapen or irregular teeth
- Malpositioned or crooked teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Gum recession- causing root exposure
The tooth is cleaned using pumice, a sandy material to remove surface deposits. The surface around the tooth defect is then roughened with a mild acid application to help hold the bonding material. A putty like plastic material is color matched to the natural tooth and placed on the roughened tooth surface and allowed to cure with a special bonding light. The restoration is then contoured, finished and polished to yield an almost undetectable and natural looking restoration.
Alternatives to Bonding Teeth
- Moving teeth with orthodontics
Veneers, crowns and orthodontic treatment options are generally more expensive with much longer treatment times although the results are usually more permanent. Contact William Carlo DMD for a top-quality tooth bonding dentist in San Diego, CA.
