Dr. Maria Benefield is an experienced cosmetic dentist in Atlanta and can achieve natural looking results with tooth bonding using a combination of skill and artistry.
Tooth bonding can often provide a quick and economical treatment option for a variety of cosmetic and dental health concerns. Typically completed in one visit to our Sandy Springs, GA dentist office, tooth bonding is often recommended for minor cosmetic concerns and tooth damage, but is not considered a permanent solution. This type of restoration is also suitable for younger patients or adult patients not yet ready for more permanent and expensive options such as porcelain veneers.
How Does Tooth Bonding Work
The tooth bonding process is similar to that of a dental filling. Dr. Benefield will apply a tooth-colored resin directly to the tooth, sculpt it into the desired shape, and cure the material with a special light. Little or no preparation of the tooth is needed.
What Can Tooth Bonding Be Used For?
- Close spaces between teeth
- Repair minor chips or cracks on teeth
- Improve the appearance of discolored teeth
- Fill tooth cavities
Most patients can expect their tooth bonding to last for several years with proper dental care and Dr. Benefield can monitor your restoration during routine dental visits to look for signs of wear. Tooth bonding is typically covered by dental insurance when addressing tooth damage or decay.
