Dental Bonding in Guntersville, AL
Total Dental Care in Guntersville, AL specializes in dental bonding as a solution for chipped, discolored, uneven, stained or gapped teeth.
Bonding is a process where the dentist attaches or “bonds” materials directly to the tooth. Advancements in dental bonding materials, such as composite resins, can now more accurately replicate natural tooth structure, appearance, and function.
Through bonding techniques, natural tooth enamel and dentin are fused to create a strong structure that looks and reacts much like the original tooth. This procedure is an excellent solution to chipped teeth and also serves as a superior filling material over metals.
The composite resin used in bonding is a tooth-colored material that is applied directly to the enamel of teeth and shaped to correct the patient's aesthetic concern. When exposed to a special ultraviolet light, the resin hardens into place.
Alternatives to bonding include, Porcelain veneers and crowns - which while more expensive, last considerably longer than bonding.
