Is your smile flawed by chipped, worn down, or stained teeth? If you wish to restore the beauty of your smile, ask Dr. Laney Schuman about dental bonding in Granite City, Illinois. During dental bonding, our dentist will apply a tooth-colored resin to your teeth and then harden it in place with a curing light. Our dentist may perform dental bonding to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Repair chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Improve the color of discolored teeth
- Close gaps and spaces between teeth
- Improve the length of teeth
- Repair misshaped teeth
- Protect exposed tooth roots
Dental bonding has several advantages. Dental bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures. Dental veneers and dental crowns are constructed in a lab, so they take two or more appointments to place. Dental bonding can be performed in just one office visit unless more than one tooth is involved. Dental bonding does not require as much tooth enamel removal as dental crowns and dental veneers. Also, dental bonding does not usually require anesthesia unless it is being used to treat a cavity.
