It’s probably safe to say that many of our patients throughout The Woodlands, Conroe, Willis, and Spring, Texas area would like to have a more beautiful smile. But often minor imperfections – such as chipped teeth or badly stained teeth, for example – make that seem like a pipe dream. Dr. Jovanovic would like to remind her patients that there is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that not only produces beautiful results; it’s also remarkably fast and affordable. It’s called dental bonding, and we are pleased to offer this procedure as one of the many services we provide to our patients.
Information about Dental Bonding
Bonding is often a great choice to repair minor dental issues, and by “minor” we include the following:
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 to 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 complete 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 as 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.
