Gulfport Dental Bonding and Teeth Bonding Services
Dental bonding is a conservative way to repair slightly-chipped, discolored or crooked teeth. During dental bonding, we place a white filling on your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling "bonds" with your teeth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.
Uses For Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is commonly used to fill small gaps between teeth, repair small tooth chips or cracks, cover discoloration, change tooth shape and much more. Bonding can also be used to fill cavities in place of regular amalgam fillings. Many patients prefer bonded fillings, because the white color is much less noticeable than the silver of the amalgam fillings. Bonding fillings can be used on front and back teeth, depending on the location and extent of tooth decay.
Affordable Teeth Bonding Services
Bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic treatments and can usually be completed in one visit to our office. During your visit, tooth-colored resin will be applied to the desired areas, molded and smoothed to match the surrounding teeth. Next, a dental curing light is used to harden the resin. After bonded, additional shaping may take place. Depending upon the severity of the issue being corrected, dental bonding can take between 30 minutes and an hour per tooth.
Dental Bonding Repairs
If your bonding breaks or chips, please let us know as soon as possible. We can generally patch or repair bonding in one visit.
