Think only invasive procedures can repair minor flaws? Think again!

Not everyone wants to go through expensive or time-consuming procedures to get the smile they want. Fortunately, you don’t have to. If you are only dealing with minor issues then it may be time to talk to our Lucerne Valley, CA dentist Dr. Samuel Kim about whether Bondingdental bonding could repair your imperfections and give you a more attractive smile.

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is a tooth-colored resin that is applied over the teeth to cover minor flaws and problem areas. Bonding is designed to make your smile more attractive but can also be used to fill cavities. Once the resin has bonded with your teeth it is there permanently. Sure, your Lucerne Valley cosmetic dentist may need to touch it up or replace the bonding resin at some point in your life but bonding is so durable that it’s very unlikely that it will fall or break off.

When is dental bonding used?

There are many issues that bonding can address, including some common ones like:

  • Filling spaces between teeth
  • Changing the shape or size of a tooth
  • Repairing small chips or cracks
  • Hiding stains and discolorations
  • Protecting an exposed tooth root
  • Filling a decaying tooth

Will bonding work for my smile?

Bonding has been a great option for many patients looking to make subtle adjustments to their smile. While it’s impossible to know whether bonding is right for your smile without examining your teeth, if you are only dealing with small imperfections this could be the right cosmetic treatment for you. What makes bonding so ideal is that it’s the fastest and most inexpensive cosmetic dentistry service offered. Plus it’s completely painless and doesn’t require anesthesia (unless you are getting a cavity filled, of course!).
