If gaps between your teeth, chips, or cracks are detracting from your smile, dental bonding can help. Baton Rouge cosmetic dentist Dr. Brooksher can use dental bonding to conceal imperfections in your teeth and enhance your smile. The results will look completely natural.
What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding, or composite, is a mixture of silica or quartz that is bound with synthetic resin. Dr. Brooksher applies it directly to your teeth while you’re sitting in a dental chair.
When Is It Used?
A variety of minor imperfections in your teeth can be concealed with dental composite, including:
- Poor shape
- Poor spacing
If your teeth need extensive corrections, Dr. Brooksher will likely recommend an alternative cosmetic treatment that is more durable and stain resistant, such as porcelain crowns or porcelain veneers.
How Is It Applied?
- Dr. Brooksher will prepare each applicable tooth by roughening and etching it.
- He will blend composite materials to achieve a perfect match for your tooth shade and conceal the imperfections.
- After he applies the bonding, he will shape, harden, and polish it.
