If you’ve been going to the dentist regularly for years (like you should be!) you’re probably pretty familiar with procedures like a crown, root canals, and regular cavity fillings. Hopefully, you haven’t needed any of those done, but you’re at least aware of them.
But are you aware of another great procedure that can help repair your teeth cosmetically? It’s called dental bonding, and it’s one of the more popular cosmetic dentistry options Dr. Reeve Abraben and the team at Lake City Family Dental Center, PA in Lake City, Florida provide.
Let’s take a look at what dental bonding is and what you need to know about it.
What is it?
Dental bonding is a procedure where a clear resin is used to fill in cracks in your teeth or to repair chips. It can be molded and shaped into place, however, Dr. Reeve Abraben and you prefer, to ensure you get the best-looking and best-working result.
After the resin is applied and shaped, it’s hardened quickly with a UV light. This makes the treatment complete nearly instantly. All that’s left is for the bonded part of your tooth to be polished and colored to match the color of your natural teeth.
When would I need it?
The best use cases for dental bonding seem to be in cases where you have smaller cracks and chips in your teeth – especially any that are readily visible in your smile. Bonding is a quick, effective, affordable way to restore your smile.
The dental bonding process is simple, but the results it provides are incredible. If you think you may need bonding services for your teeth, please don’t hesitate to call us today at 386.752.1342.
