If you have a cosmetic problem with a tooth, you may want to have it fixed using dental bonding. At our dental practice, Ryan P Lepore DMD, our top-notch dentist, Dr. Lepore can assess your cosmetic dental problem and let you know the best way it should be corrected. At our Dunedin dental office, many patients are able to have their cosmetic tooth problem easily corrected using dental bonding.
When dental bonding is performed, a composite dental material is used. This is usually the same material that is used to provide patients with tooth-colored fillings. It can be made to perfectly color-match your teeth so no one will be able to know that it is even on your teeth. Dental bonding is a very easy and cost-effective way to have a cosmetic improvement made to your smile. If you need to have a larger cosmetic improvement made, it may be better to get porcelain veneers or even porcelain crowns. Our dentist at our Golden Acres dental office will want to assess your individual situation and let you know which the best way is to proceed. Our dentist is very skillful at using dental bonding material, and we know that you will be extremely pleased with the results. This material is often compared to a sculptor’s clay; in order to be able to provide excellent dental bonding results, a dentist needs to be highly skilled in this treatment area, which our dentist clearly is. Dental bonding can be used to correct many different types of cosmetic dental situations including: teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are discolored and cannot be corrected using dental whitening method; teeth that are uneven; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; and many other cosmetic dental problems. The dental bonding material is applied and then dried with a special light. One treatment will generally call for several layers of the dental bonding material to be applied.
