Dental BondingCosmetic dental procedures are multi-faceted to suit the varying needs of patients. Chipped, misshapen, crooked, or discolored teeth aren’t a life sentence. You can make changes whenever you want with the help of Houston cosmetic dentist, Dr. Deborah Gennero. If you cringe when you see pictures of yourself, or don’t even like looking at your teeth in the mirror when you’re alone, this is no way to live. Smile confidence is an important element of a high quality of life. One of the simplest possibilities is a treatment called dental bonding. A fairly simple and non-invasive treatment, small flaws on teeth are easily covered up with bonding material (composite resin).

Versatile Composite Resin

Tooth-colored composite resin is the material used to fill cavities in front teeth. We also use it for dental bonding. Incredibly versatile, cosmetic bonding covers up imperfections with both aesthetics and strength. The material undergoes a chemical reaction which allows the resin to literally bond with your teeth. Composite materials are dyed to color-match your surrounding teeth. All of this is easily accomplished in one office visit for most patients.

Dental Bonding Preparation

Preparation for dental bonding involves a thorough examination. Once Dr. Gennero has determined a healthy foundation for your cosmetic procedure, she will roughen the surfaces of your smile. This is relatively gentle, however, and anesthesia is rarely necessary. Without this step, optimal bonding of the soft composite material won’t occur. Once placed, the resin is smoothed and shaped to cover imperfections. A special light hardens the dental bonding material. After polishing and buffing have transpired, you’ll leave the office with an amazingly natural, translucent, bright, white smile.
