There are many ways to improve your smile. Cosmetic bonding is a simple and affordable solution to make cosmetic and structural changes to your teeth.
Dr. George’s training and eperience in cosmetic dentistry have given him many opportunities to use dental bonding in his career of over 30 years.
His eye for esthetics hasgiven him the ability to sculpt teeth with a natural look that improves a patient’s unique smile, without compromising a natural appearance. Tooth bonding is a technique that utilizes tooth-colored composite resin, which is a durable composite material. By placing the material directly onto a tooth’s surface, Dr. George adds structure to replace parts of a tooth lost to a chip or to close a space between teeth. The resin is sculpted by hand, then hardened with a special light for a permanent bond. In almost all cases, patients do not need anaesthetic for this short procedure.
Dr. George uses only the finest dental materials, so his dental restorations are strong and cosmetically natural looking. Since there are manymaterials on the market, it takes time, research, and experience to make sure the products and techniques that are used are the best. Teeth endure significant abuse when we bite and chew, so using a strong bonding adhesive makes a significant difference in how long the bonding lasts.
Close spaces between teeth
Lengthen small or misshaped teeth
Whiten stained or dark teeth
Help protect teeth that are beginning to wear or chip
Bonding is a good option for patients who find that porcelain veneers or Lumineers are not affordable, or the cosmetic changes desired are minor and do not require porcelain veneers. In many cases, dental insurance will help to pay for tooth bonding.
