Cover Imperfections in Your Smile with Dental Bonding
Dental bonding fills and covers imperfections in your teeth. Dr. Everett Heringer artfully sculpts dental bonding composite to cover chips, cracks, and discoloration, and can fill the "black triangle" that some patients develop between their front teeth. Dr. Heringer can also use dental bonding as a cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers.View transcript
Dr. Heringer: People are concerned about cosmetic dental procedures. They feel when they hear cosmetic dental procedures, they think of crowns or veneers, and they think that there's a huge investment or they're quite costly. Well, there are other procedures that we can do to make it much more affordable for you, and that's basically through the process of dental bonding. What dental bonding is, you take a tooth-colored material, and if there's any voids or any pits or any staining on any of your teeth, it can be as simple as like erasing one brown spot on your front tooth and do some dental bonding over it with a tooth-colored material. What the bonding is, is basically you're taking a white material and you're bonding it or gluing it onto the tooth and you're sculpting it to making it look like a natural tooth. Dental bonding can do very simple procedures. Also, some of you, as we get older, we get this black triangle in between two front teeth or some other teeth. It's a very easy way for us to dental bond and close what we call the dreaded black triangle disease. That's a very concern for a lot of people, particularly women. They don't like to have that space between their front teeth. So that's another thing you can do with dental bonding. Another thing that you can do with more advanced dental bonding is you can create bonded veneers. Rather than sending your case out to a lab or rather than prepping your teeth down, you can do a lot of things where it's more of an additive principle and just use some bonding material. You bond some white filling material onto your front teeth or to your teeth and it strengthens your teeth and makes it look very natural, and it's much more affordable than crowns and bridges. So think about dental bonding when you're thinking about getting a beautiful result and also trying to make things more affordable for you. Dental bonding could be a solution for you also.
