Dental Bonding

Straight teeth and smile after  bonding using tooth colored filling material to re-shape and correct the appearance of problemsWhat is dental bonding? Bonding uses tooth colored filling material to re-shape and correct the appearance of problems like:

  • Chipped Enamel
  • Gaps Between the Teeth
  • Uneven Teeth
  • Exposed Roots

Dr. Goldston shapes the bonding over the conditioned tooth, allowing it to fuse with your enamel. Then once we get the perfect shape, the material is cured into place with a bright light. Afterward, it looks as if your tooth had nothing even done to it – it’s just shaped the way that you need it to be.

We use a shade guide to match your bonded area with the rest of the tooth. This helps us create a seamless flow from the restoration to your tooth.

What to Expect

Happy dental patient after her cosmetic bonding procedure  took no more than an hour to completeIn many circumstances bonding can be completed without any numbing. Larger areas may need to be prepped more, so Dr. Goldston may decide to numb the area before the process is started. Ultimately, we are focused on how comfortable you are from start to finish!

Your cosmetic bonding procedure usually takes no more than an hour to complete. It will depend on how many teeth are being bonded, and whether or not any other cosmetic treatments are being completed at the same time. Call Greenville Family Smiles and schedule an exam to find out more.
