Is your smile marred by flaws like chipped, stained, or worn down teeth? Do you yearn for a smile that will boost your self-esteem? Ask Dr. Jim Heck about dental bonding in Greenwood, Indiana. During dental bonding, our dentist will apply a tooth-colored material to one or more teeth and then harden it with a special light. This is done to restore the beauty of a patient’s smile. Our dentist may recommend dental bonding to:
• Repair decayed teeth
• Repair teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken
• Improve the color of discolored teeth
• Close gaps and spaces between teeth
• Improve the length of teeth
• Improve the shape of teeth
• Protect exposed tooth roots
Dental bonding has many advantages. Bonding is one or the easiest and cheapest ways to enhance or restore your smile. Dental bonding can be performed in just one dental appointment, unless several teeth are being treated. Less tooth enamel is removed with dental bonding than with dental veneers and dental crowns. Because tooth structure is saved, your long-term oral health is improved. Anesthesia is usually not required when dental bonding is performed unless our dentist is using the material to fill a cavity.
