Presto-Chango… Bonding!

If you have been wanting to make some cosmetic improvements to your smile, but aren’t ready for any drastic cosmetic procedures – dental bonding by our Huntersville dentist is the procedure for you!

Bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin material to teeth to fix chips, cracks, or other minor imperfections. It takes skilled, experienced hands and a trained eye to produce bonding results that look absolutely natural.

How is Dental Bonding Done?

Once the surface of the tooth is prepared, the bonding material is custom-colored to match your tooth’s natural shade, applied to the surface of the tooth, and then shaped and smoothed to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Here is where the benefit of Dr. Merrill’s decades of experience and many hours of cosmetic dentistry training to achieve AACD accreditation can really be seen! His superlative, natural-looking results speak for themselves!

Often, a whitening procedure is performed before the bonding material is color-matched to ensure a bright smile with even coloring. Whitening and bonding are two inexpensive, quick, and easy treatments that can go hand-in-hand to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile! 

When is Bonding a Good Solution?

Dental bonding is a great option for issues such as:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Worn or short teeth
  • Visibly decayed teeth
  • Teeth with gaps or spaces
  • Misshapen teeth

Bonding is a great option for those who want to make cosmetic improvements to their smiles that are fast and easy! 

A bonding procedure can often be completed in one office visit and is painless. How long your bonded teeth will last depends a lot on their location and how well you care for them. Bonding resin is very durable, but not as durable as, say, porcelain veneers or crowns.
