Toluca Lake Dentist Uses Dental Bonding to Correct Common Dental Problems

Written by Dr. McKay on Aug 4, 2014

Sometimes, small dental issues pop up. Maybe a tooth becomes chipped, or a tooth becomes slightly misaligned. Many patients want to correct these issues, but they do not want to go through lengthy or invasive treatments in order to get results. That is why our Toluca Lake dentist often recommends dental bonding for these patients. Dental bonding is quick, convenient, and affordable—let’s learn more about this useful treatment.

What is the dental bonding process like?

Dental bonding involves our dentist using dental resin to alter the appearance or repair the structure of a tooth. Our dentist applies tooth-colored dental resin to the affected enamel; then the resin cures and bonds to the tooth. The entire process takes less than an hour. Dental resin can be colored to match your specific dental shade, and blend with your natural teeth.

Is dental bonding right for me?

Dental bonding is incredibly versatile—this one treatment can transform your smile in a number of ways. Dental bonding may be a good dental treatment option for you if you want to change your smile in any of the following ways:

1. Make your teeth look whiter or brighter (especially if your enamel has been resistant to professional dental whitening treatments in the past)

2. Straighten the appearance of slightly crooked or misaligned teeth

3. Close spaces between teeth

4. Build up uneven bite surfaces or worn down dental enamel

5. Correct damaged enamel, such as cracked or chipped dental enamel

There are multiple ways to correct these dental problems, but the fastest and easiest option is dental bonding. So contact our Toluca Lake dentist office to get more information about how dental bonding works—we can help you decide whether this treatment is right for your unique situation.
