Dental bonding is a more conservative way to repair slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth. During dental bonding in Derby, Kansas, a white filling is placed onto your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling “bonds” with your tooth, and because it comes in a variety of tooth-colored shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.
Tooth bonding can also be used for tooth fillings instead of silver amalgam. Many patients at Dental Professionals LLC prefer bonded fillings because the white color is much less noticeable than silver. Bonded fillings can be used on front or back teeth, depending on the location and extent of the tooth decay. This is an aspect that our dentists will discuss during your consultation.
Bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic treatments, and it can usually be completed in one visit to our office. However, bonding can stain and is easier to break than other cosmetic treatments, such as porcelain veneers. If it does break or chip, tell your dentist. The bonding can generally be easily patched or repaired by Dr. Carol Ysidro, Dr. Omar Barakeh or associates, in one visit.
