Dental Bonding – Longview, TX
Enjoy Showing Off Your Smile Again
Dental damage is sometimes unpreventable. Accidents happen, but that doesn’t mean that you have to live with the visible reminder of them every day. At Vaca & Kirby Dental, we want our patients to be able to maintain excellent oral health while also having a smile that boosts their confidence instead of bringing them down. That’s why we offer several cosmetic services including dental bonding. In a single visit with one of our three dentists with collective decades of experience, you’ll be able to enjoy a beautified and complete smile.
What is Dental Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding utilizes a special composite resin that is made from fine particles of acrylic and glass to rebuild damaged teeth or fill gaps in your smile. This same material can also help treat cavities and dental decay as well. Unlike veneers, dental bonding in Longview can be done in-office in a single visit.
How Does the Bonding Process Work?
When you visit our state-of-the-art facility, you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly dental professionals. Typically, dental bonding doesn’t require much preparation, although we may need to alter the damaged tooth if it has a sharp chip or edge. One of our three dentists will use a dental shade guide to choose the color of composite resin that closely matches the rest of your teeth.
We’ll roughen the surface of your damaged tooth to help the composite resin putty bond with it. After we apply and mold the putty to complete the shape of your teeth, we’ll cure it with a special light. Once the material has hardened, we’ll make any final adjustments to the shape and size of it and check your bite. Once we determine everything meets our high-quality standards, we’ll polish it and you’ll be all finished up!
What Problems Can Dental Bonding Fix?
The best way to determine whether dental bonding can help you is by visiting your cosmetic dentist in Longview for a consultation. This cost-effective and fast treatment can fix a number of issues, including:
- Chipped or cracked teeth.
- Improve the appearance of discoloration or staining.
- Close spaces between your teeth.
- Change the length and shape of teeth.
What are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?
Unlike most cosmetic procedures, dental bonding can be completed from start-to-finish in our practice. Some other advantages that this solution can offer patients include:
- One of the most cost-effective cosmetic procedures.
- Minimal removal of tooth enamel required for preparation.
- Can be completed in a single visit.
- With proper care, bonding can last from three to 10 years.
- Typically, no anesthesia is necessary, unless the composite resin is being used to repair decay.
