Dental Bonding Conroe TX
Many patients residing in Conroe, The Woodlands, Willis, and Spring, Texas areas may desire a more aesthetically pleasing smile. However, minor flaws like chipped or stained teeth may make this desire seem unattainable. Dr. Carolyn Jovanovic wishes to remind her patients that there is an affordable and fast cosmetic dentistry procedure that can produce beautiful results. This procedure is known as dental bonding, and we are delighted to offer it among the many services we provide to our patients.
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to a tooth and hardened with a special light. The material is then shaped and polished to match the adjacent teeth. Dental bonding is used to repair chipped, decayed, or discolored teeth, as well as to close gaps between teeth. It can also be used to make teeth look longer or to change the shape of a tooth.
Information about Dental Bonding
Bonding is often a great choice to repair minor dental issues, and by “minor” we include the following:
It is a quick, painless way to improve the appearance of your smile. During the procedure, a tooth-colored resin is applied and hardened with a special light, and then shaped and polished to match your natural teeth. The result is a strong, natural-looking restoration.
The process involves Dr. Jovanovic applying a thin layer of composite bonding material to the surface of the affected tooth, then using a curing light to harden the material. This not only repairs the tooth; it also protects it from further damage. The procedure is simple and can usually be completed in a single trip to our office. Once Dr. Jovanovic applies the bonding material, she literally molds it onto the tooth so that it looks completely natural. In this way, she can resolve issues such as chipped or cracked teeth, as well as misshapen teeth.
If your teeth are badly stained and can’t be whitened with the bleaching agents found in whitening products – which is often the case with people whose enamel has eroded, for example — you may elect to have several teeth bonded in order to achieve a whiter smile. The composite material can be created in any shade you desire. So if you want to have a single tooth repaired, we can create the composite material to exactly match the shade of your other teeth. If your problem is badly stained teeth, Dr. Jovanovic can make the bonding material into a much whiter shade than your natural teeth and bond several teeth at once, giving you a much whiter smile than would otherwise be possible.
Bonding has other advantages as well. If you or a family member is cavity-prone, bonding can smooth out the surface of the teeth, which reduces the number of crevices where bacteria can collect and eventually form cavities. This makes bonding a good choice for some of our younger patients, for example, who have chronic cavity issues.
