Dental bonding from dentist in Garland Are there aspects of your smile you would like to improve? Maybe you feel like your budget or busy schedule cannot accommodate cosmetic dentistry. You might be pleasantly surprised as you learn more about dental bonding. Garland, TX dentist, Dr. Sakunthala Boppana is trained and experienced in this versatile technique.

About tooth bonding

Dental bonding is composite resin, shaded to match natural tooth color. It is called bonding because the material is adhered to tooth surfaces. The procedure is efficient, requiring minimal tooth preparation. No enamel has to be removed, so numbing is usually not necessary. Dr. Boppana shapes the pliable material, then bonds it directly to the tooth. The restoration is cured with a high-intensity light. With a bit of final contouring and polishing, bonding looks completely natural. Uses for teeth bonding

Dr. Boppana commonly uses teeth bonding for gaps, augmenting the size and shape of adjacent teeth to close the space. Dental bonding has many additional applications:
  • Repair of tooth decay. Bonding is a strong and attractive alternative to silver-colored amalgam fillings.
  • Mask chips, cracks, pits, and bumps in tooth enamel.
  • Disguise stubborn discoloration that does not respond to teeth whitening.
  • Alter the size, length, or shape of teeth.
  • Repair worn down teeth.
  • Improve the appearance of root surfaces exposed by gum recession, and protect this area from sensitivity and decay.

Easy care

Treat bonded teeth to your usual good oral hygiene. Brush after meals, floss before bedtime, and maintain regular checkups. While bonding is stain resistant, you may want to limit dark beverages to keep your new smile sparkling. The material is hard and durable, but it can chip. Protect it as you would natural tooth structure - avoid biting on ice, hard foods, or non-food objects like fingernails or pens.

Teeth bonding price

The cost of this procedure depends on your specific dental condition, the number of teeth being treated, and other procedures performed in conjunction. However, it is an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers or crowns, and may be covered by dental insurance.
