Serving Amarillo, Canyon, Dalhart and the surrounding Texas Panhandle
Looking for a convenient, cost-effective way to improve the look of your teeth? Then consider receiving a dental bonding treatment from the cosmetic dental experts Dr. Trey H. Miller and Dr. Clinton L. Esler at Advanced Dentistry of Amarillo.
What can dental bonding repair?
A bonding treatment can correct any of the following issues in your teeth:
- Chipped tooth
- Slight fractures
- Discoloration that does not respond to teeth whitening methods
- Misshapen tooth
- Minor tooth crookedness
Bonding even can be used to repair an area of tooth decay, close a gap between teeth, or to reduce sensitivity caused by receding gums.
Who should consider dental bonding?
Having a dental bonding procedure is easy, especially compared to some of the more involved treatments in the field of cosmetic dentistry.
In most cases, the patient will not need any anesthetic. The dentist will slightly roughen the surface of the tooth, apply a special liquid bonding agent, and then apply the tooth-colored resin to the tooth being treated. That resin has been color-matched to look like your natural teeth. We then harden that resin under a special ultraviolet light, and you are good to go!
The benefits of dental bonding include the following:
- Convenience. In the vast majority of cases, dental bonding can be completed during a single appointment, and no returning for a later appointment to complete treatment, in most cases.
- Economical. Providing state-of-the-art cosmetic dental services often can be expensive because of the high-quality materials and specialized training involved in the field. Bonding is significantly less expensive than many other cosmetic procedures and does not require the use of a dental laboratory.
- Comfortable. Many bonding treatments are completed without any anesthesia and often results in no post-procedure discomfort.
How long does dental bonding last?
No dental bonding treatment lasts forever. The average lifespan ranges between three and 10 years. Do your part to extend the life of a dental bonding procedure by practicing good oral hygiene with regular brushing and flossing, in conjunction with seeing the dentist every six months for an examination and a professional dental cleaning.
