We offer dental bonding in Tyler, Texas, that restores and improves your smile.
Our dentists find bonding to be beneficial because it is one of the easiest and least expensive dental treatments. The process can be finished within one visit, and it only requires a small amount of tooth enamel to be removed. We also prefer dental bonding because it is completely painless and you do not need any kind of anesthetic to help you through the procedure.
Bonding has the capability of:
- Repairing decayed teeth
- Repairing chipped or broken teeth
- Closing the spaces between teeth
- Brightening the color of teeth
- Making the teeth appear to look longer
- Changing the shape of the teeth
Your dental bonding technique at East Texas Dental Group will generally take about an hour and will begin with your dentist preparing the tooth. This does not require anesthesia and involves your dentist choosing the proper shade of color for the bonding material. Next, the surface of your tooth will be roughened and your dentist will apply a conditioning liquid, which helps the material bond to the tooth. The tooth-colored putty is then applied, molded and smoothed onto your tooth. Then, a special light will harden the material, and your dentist will trim and shape it.
