If you have been living with chipped or discolored teeth then dental cosmetic bonding may be for you. Dental bonding is a very common cosmetic procedure that is easily done in just one office visit.
Very often a front tooth becomes worn or chipped over time leaving a smile that is less than perfect. Dental bonding by your LVI trained cosmetic dentist, Dr. Donald Wilcox, uses the most technologically advanced dental resins to repair the chipped area. Extensive training in cosmetic dentistry is important so that color matching of the resin to the natural tooth is perfect. Once the repair is in place it is hardened in place using a special laser. The restoration is then refined, polished and complete.
Dental bonding is not limited to chipped teeth. Teeth that have uneven length or areas of receding gums are also candidates for cosmetic dental bonding. It is important to remember that dental bonding can stain and discolor due to smoking or drinking coffee or red wine. Cosmetic dental bonding is sometimes chosen as an alternative to porcelain veneers. While both type of restoration can repair chips and cracks, the porcelain veneer is typically more durable and long lasting although more expensive.
