Novato Cosmetic Dentist Office Reviews Versatile Dental Bonding Uses

Written by Dr. McConnell on Dec 9, 2014

Are you bothered by dental imperfections and looking for a cost-effective solution? Dental bonding is a procedure that delivers great results quickly and affordable. At our Novato Cosmetic Dentist Office we offer this service to correct a variety of common cosmetic concerns. 

How does dental bonding work?

Dental bonding enables our dentist to correct cosmetic problems with a natural-looking dental composite resin. This material can be shaded to enhance the beauty of your smile. Once applied, it can be custom-shaped to your tooth to give it a natural appearance.
What problems can dental bonding fix?

Our skilled dentist applies composite directly over your existing dental enamel. This makes it is an excellent choice for perfecting the appearance of discolored or damaged teeth. Dental bonding can be used to repair a number of cosmetic dental concerns:

  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • Improve appearance of stained or discolored teeth
  • Fill in large gaps between teeth
  • Change the shape of teeth for a uniform appearance
  • As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings

What are the benefits of dental bonding?

Our patients choose dental bonding because it is one of the quickest and most affordable ways to change the appearance of your smile. Other cosmetic dental treatments like crowns and veneers usually require several appointments to complete, whereas in most cases our dentist can do finish the bonding process in just one office visit.

Another important advantage compared to other treatments is that very little healthy tooth enamel needs to be removed by your dentist when preparing the tooth for bonding. In most cases, it is not necessary to numb the tooth being treated so you don’t have to worry about injections.

If you are living with a less than perfect smile and have been thinking about the options you might have, dental bonding may be right for you.

We can help you get the smile of your dreams quickly, comfortably, and affordably.
