Enhance your smile and repair minor tooth blemishes with bonding

Cosmetic dental bonding is a simple, yet significant procedure that quickly masks minor surface flaws in teeth. If your tooth is generally healthy and doesn’t need a crown or veneer, bonding provides an aesthetic enhancement in a minimally invasive nature. Cosmetic bonding is one of the simplest and most affordable ways to address localized issues in specific areas of your smile. For dental bonding in Santa Rosa, call our office.

What Is Dental Bonding?

Tooth bonding is a same-day cosmetic procedure that covers aesthetic flaws in teeth. The material that’s used is similar to that in white fillings; it blends seamlessly with the enamel around it the moment it’s placed.

When Is Bonding Recommended?

A single tooth can detract from your entire smile. Dr. Sutton may recommend cosmetic bonding if teeth are relatively healthy but less than appealing. By quickly masking minor flaws, your overall smile is instantly transformed. We can use bonding alone or in combination with other types of aesthetic services for a dazzling smile makeover experience.

Dental bonding is ideal for mild to moderate concerns related to:

  • Minor gaps between teeth
  • Chipped enamel
  • Uneven teeth
  • Surface flaws, such as pitting or misshaped enamel
  • Minor injuries

What Is The Cosmetic Bonding Procedure Like?

Having a tooth bonded typically requires less than an hour from start to finish. Our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sutton, will gently prep the tooth to create a firm bond, then handcraft a custom-matched composite over the area of concern. Once he shapes the material to its desired contour, we use a bright light to cure it into place.

Bonding is such a simple process, that numbing your tooth usually isn’t even necessary. But if it is, or you generally feel a little anxious about dental care in general, Dr. Sutton will go above and beyond to ensure your comfort.

Minor Enhancements Make A Big Impact

Perfect symmetry is one of the foundations of aesthetic appeal. When an injured tooth or uneven edge disrupts the contour of your smile, all of the teeth (and your confidence) are affected. Bonding is one of the simplest and most effective ways to positively impact how your smile looks and feels. It’s useful for all ages, as there are relatively few restrictions.

Keep in mind that bonding may not be right for all teeth, especially in heavy-biting areas or for large fractures. Dr. Sutton is a Fellow of the Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics and will review the most appropriate cosmetic alternatives with you as part of your smile design experience.
