Teeth that are chipped, cracked, or separated by gaps can significantly detract from your smile and overall appearance. We can conceal these and other imperfections with dental bonding. At our Los Angeles area practice, we often suggest dental bonding to patients who want a conservative yet effective way to restore the health and beauty of their teeth.
As with porcelain veneers, dental bonding is used to cover aesthetic flaws in teeth. However, the bonding procedure can be completed in a single office visit rather than the several visits required by veneers. We start by etching the surface of the tooth to be treated with dental bonding. We then apply the bonding material and sculpt it into the desired shape. The bonding material is matched to the color of surrounding natural teeth, so that the treated teeth will blend in perfectly. Once the material is shaped, it is hardened using a special light and then smoothed and polished for a natural-looking appearance.
If you have teeth in need of repair, consider dental bonding at our Los Angeles area practice. We can treat one or several teeth with bonding, with results that can last for years with proper care. Contact Century City Aesthetic Dentistry to schedule a consultation with Dr. Loosvelt and find out whether dental bonding is the right cosmetic treatment for you.
