Dental Bonding Makes your Teeth Go From Unusual to Beautiful

Patients who would like to make minor changes in the appearance of their smile may inquire about a treatment known as dental bonding. Bonding can change your smile from unusual to beautiful, and is part of the cosmetic dentistry services at Simpson Dental Associates in Charleston, WV. The dentist uses a strong, composite material to restore smaller cavities or reshape teeth for a natural appearance.

Successfully Correct your Imperfect Teeth with our Bonding Process

Dental bonding can be used to correct a number of imperfections in your smile, such as:

  • Cracked, broken, or chipped teeth
  • Gaps and spaces between teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Stained or darkened teeth
  • Worn-down teeth

A Cosmetic and Restoration Dental Solution for Budget-Conscious Patients

Bonding is an economical cosmetic and restoration dental solution designed for budget-conscious patients who want to improve their smile. In addition to being one of the more affordable cosmetic dental treatments, it is also very conservative and noninvasive. The bonding process can be one of the more comfortable treatments in cosmetic dentistry!

The Bonding Process by Simpson Dental Associates

Dental bonding material is very similar to a clay or putty. It is carefully color-matched to your surrounding teeth. Dr. Simpson begins by roughening the surface of the tooth that needs restoration. This ensures a strong bond between the tooth and the bonding material. The doctor then applies the bonding material in layers until the tooth looks the way you want it. The bonding material is cured/hardened with a special light and polished. You are then ready to face the world with your new smile.

Longevity and Caring for your Dental Bonding Treatment

Patients can expect dental bonding to last several years on average, with proper oral hygiene care. Bonding material will chip and break easier than natural tooth enamel, so if you engage in contact sports or any activity that may put you at risk of tooth damage, you should wear a mouth guard. Also, be sure to wear a mouth guard if you grind your teeth, and avoid chewing on hard substances, such as hard candy or ice.

While dental bonding can be precisely color-matched to your surrounding teeth, it lacks much of the natural-looking translucence of tooth enamel and porcelain. It does, however, provide a highly durable, affordable, comfortable solution to many common cosmetic dental problems.
