Dental bonding is a conservative way to instantly improve your smile. Our cosmetic dentist for ChandlerAZ Dr. Walker, uses bonding as a way to restore and repair minor blemishes of the teeth. Just about any smile flaw can be repaired with bonding, including:
- Chips or cracks
- Stains and discoloration
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Gaps and spaces
Dental bonding is the application of tooth-colored composite resin materials, used to mask the parts of the teeth that deflect from your smile. Dr. Walker carefully blends bonding materials so they can easily be shaped and polished to match naturally with the surrounding teeth. This provides a brand new appearance to the smile with dentistry that is unnoticeable.
The process of bonding is quite simple. First, the surface of the tooth will be carefully etched and conditioned so that the bonding material will adhere to it strongly. Then, the bonding material is applied to the tooth, as Dr. Walker molds it until it’s in its proper shape and looks natural. The bonding is then hardened using a special ultraviolet light. Dr. Walker will assess the application and make any further adjustments if needed. Once any final touches are made, the tooth is polished until the bonding blends naturally with the rest of your smile.
Our Chandler, AZ cosmetic dentist pays special attention during bonding applications to ensure each individual smile comes out just right. The result is a conservative, cost-effective smile makeover with beautifully natural results. If you have areas of your smile you are unhappy with, we encourage you to set up your consultation to discuss cosmetic dental treatment with Dr. Walker today.
