Gouverneur dentist Dr. Nicholas Gardner offers tooth bonding for both cosmetic and dental health concerns. This is a fast, affordable treatment that is usually completed in a single visit to our family dentist office.
Tooth bonding can effectively treat:
- Close spaces between teeth
- Repair minor chips or cracks on teeth
- Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
- Fill tooth cavities
Tooth Bonding: What To Expect
Cosmetic tooth bonding is similar to a composite dental filling and is generally completed with minimal discomfort.
Dr. Gardner will apply a color matched resin directly to the tooth surface, sculpt it into the desired shape, and cure the material with a special light. Little or no preparation of the tooth is needed.
Tooth bonding can last for several years with proper dental care, but is not considered a permanent restorative or cosmetic treatment. For a more durable and lasting option, Dr. Gardner may recommend porcelain veneers.
