When you visit our family dentistry in Fort Collins, Dr. Guy Leavitt may recommend dental bonding to improve the appearance of chipped, cracked, discolored, or oddly shaped teeth. Another significant advantage of dental bonding is the fact that this procedure can be completed quickly — you won’t have to schedule too much time out of your busy day. If you have any questions about the benefits of dental bonding, call us today! Our team at Fort Collins Dental Arts is knowledgeable and prepared to help you with any of your cosmetic dentistry questions.
Dental bonding is a simple, conservative way to improve the appearance of your smile. During the bonding process, our skilled doctor places a composite resin material directly onto the tooth structure. Because the resin is malleable and putty-like when first applied, we can shape and sculpt it to fit your tooth and correct flaws in the tooth’s appearance. The composite resin is then hardened, trimmed, and polished to provide a lasting, aesthetic restoration for your smile. Dental bonding typically requires just one visit to our welcoming dental office, and because this treatment usually necessitates little-to-no tooth preparation, you can rest assured that your visit will be comfortable and painless.
Our doctor may recommend dental bonding in order to close gaps and spaces between teeth, improve misshapen teeth, lighten stained or discolored teeth, or restore chipped or cracked teeth. We will use a shade of composite resin that matches the original color of your teeth for a natural-looking effect. If you would prefer, we can use a slightly lighter shade to whiten the color of your teeth so you can get some dental whitening while you’re at it. For more information on cosmetic dental bonding and how we can help you improve your smile, please schedule a dentist appointment or contact us. We’ll be happy to answer questions when you visit our dental office.
