Toluca Lake Dentist Explains What Kinds of Patients Can Usually Benefit from Dental Bonding

Written by Dr. McKay on Sep 17, 2013

In our Toluca Lake dentist office we understand that our patients are busy people, and that they often need to get dental care in a timely manner. That is why we offer a number of dental treatments that are simple and seamless for our patients. Perhaps the easiest and fastest treatment for our patients is dental bonding. Dental bonding can be completed in just one appointment, and is suitable for a wide variety of patients—read on to get more information!

The patient with aging teeth

As we age our dental enamel starts to wear down and thin. This means that teeth are more prone to damage. Additionally, teeth can start to look yellow, since white dental enamel thins and reveals the yellow dentin beneath. Dental bonding is often used to reinforce aging teeth. Bonding can also whiten the appearance of yellowing dental enamel—especially because older enamel is often unreceptive to professional bleaching treatments.

The patient who has sustained dental damage

If you have been in an accident and sustained dental damage, you will want to restore the health as well as the appearance of your smile. Dental bonding is frequently used to repair cracks and chips in dental enamel. Because the dental resin used in bonding is custom-shaded, your bonding work will match your existing enamel.

The patient with slight structural dental problems

If some of your teeth look a bit crooked, or have gaps between them, dental bonding can actually give your smile a straighter, more seamless appearance. By building up your natural enamel surface with dental resin, our dentist will make your teeth look as if they are perfectly aligned.

If you fit into any of these common patient categories, dental bonding might an ideal dental treatment for you! To learn more, or to schedule a consultation with our Toluca Lake dentist, contact our office today!
