In the past, cosmetic dentistry used to be expensive and only appropriate for the Hollywood elite. However, now patients of all walks of life can improve the appearance of their smile with aesthetic treatments. Dr. Mark A. Wong and his team in Walnut Creek, CA are dedicated to ensuring patients have access to the solutions they want for their smile, including dental bonding. Dental bonding is a tooth bonding process that is used to fill gaps between the teeth, cover imperfections on the teeth, fix chipped or cracked teeth, or disguise other concerns that might be impacting the overall look of the smile.
How does dental bonding work?
Dental bonding is one of many cosmetic procedures available with Dr. Mark A. Wong and his team in Walnut Creek, California. His facility uses this material, which is often made of a composite resin, to fix a variety of imperfections. The material is placed onto a prepared tooth and is cured, or hardened, using a special lighted device. Then, the dentist can file and polish the material around the tooth to create a natural-looking repair. The entire process is done in a relatively short period of time in the dentist’s chair and is a wonderful way to address common imperfections near the front of the smile.
What is dental bonding used for?
- Gaps between teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
- Lengthening a natural tooth
- Fixing a chip or crack in a tooth
- Filling a tooth that has had a cavity
- Covering a tooth that is slightly misaligned
Who is a candidate for dental bonding?
Dental bonding can be appropriate for any patient who wants to cover an imperfection near the front of the smile. In other situations, a dentist may recommend a porcelain veneer or a ceramic dental crown, depending on the patient’s unique situation.
