At Creative Dentistry & Medspa in Sandy Springs, GA, we offer dental bonding to patients with chipped or cracked teeth as well as for repairing cosmetic issues. Dental bonding is a general dentistry treatment that applies composite resin to repair damaged teeth and make them look whole again. It’s incredibly simple, yet very effective at restoring people’s smiles and making them look the way they used to before the damage. It is also cost-effective compared to other types of tooth restorations and cosmetic procedures.
Dental bonding procedures take about half an hour, a quick fix for many chips or cracks in teeth. Dental bonding is a great way to fix structurally damaged teeth. The treatment is simple, and it is one of the least expensive dental procedures. Composite resin is applied to teeth and cured using ultraviolet light. The composite resin we use is matched to the color of the rest of your teeth, so it doesn’t stand out when you smile.
After we apply the resin, we’ll shape it, so it looks natural and doesn’t affect your bite. It is a painless procedure, and we won’t even need to use local anesthesia, so no needles or shots. Local anesthesia is only used if the affected tooth has ongoing decay that needs to be removed before bonding. Once the resin is cured and hardened, we polish it to match your tooth enamel – the tooth repair can be almost invisible.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
When a tooth is damaged or has aesthetic issues, we can apply a crown or a veneer to the tooth. A crown fits over a tooth to cover it and provide extra strength. Veneers are thin shells that are applied to the front surfaces of teeth for a better appearance. Both are options at Creative Dentistry & Medspa, but they tend to be more expensive than dental bonding.
Cosmetic dental bonding is less invasive than crowns and veneers, as less work will be done to the tooth. Both crowns and veneers require some of the tooth or enamel be removed. Cosmetic dental bonding is much less expensive and takes less time to do. We can perform cosmetic bonding in one visit while veneers and crowns may require two or more visits spaced a week or two apart. Cosmetic bonding can be used to fix chips, change tooth shape, close gaps, hide discolorations and much more.
