Even a tiny gap between your teeth can affect the way you and others perceive your smile. The same thing goes for a chipped tooth or conspicuous silver amalgam filling. John P. Goodman, D.D.S. is able to use the most durable composite resin material to bond your teeth, effectively correcting the subtle imperfections you wish to target. With dental bonding (also known as composite bonding) at our Kansas City practice, our dentist can dramatically improve your smile in one short visit!
Benefits of Composite Bonding
In addition to being a quick, painless, and safe procedure, the composite bonding performed by Dr. Goodman is associated with many benefits, such as:
- Preserves the tooth while enhancing its appearance
- Contains fluoride which helps prevent new cavities
- Restores chips and cracks, fill holes and spaces, and corrects discoloration
- Can replace unattractive silver amalgam fillings
- Simpler alternative to porcelain veneers
- Compatible with other cosmetic or restorative dentistry treatments
- Durable, and lasts for 5 to 10 years
About the Procedure
Your exact preferences will be determined during your consultation. A number of options will be made available to you, as the dental bonding material we use at our Kansas City office comes in various shades, colors, and even textures. Dr. Goodman is well-versed in choosing the composite resin that fits the needs of the patient.
The bonding process can be completed during a quick visit. After initially examining and cleaning your teeth, Dr. Goodman will rub a special dental acid on the desired tooth, thus preparing the enamel for the bonding material. Next, the composite resin will be applied in a series of coats (the dentist will use a proprietary dental light to set each layer, one at a time). After sufficiently coating the tooth or teeth, Dr. Goodman will sculpt and polish the bonding material so that it matches the shape, texture, and look you decided upon.
