Dental Bonding Raleigh, NC
Repair defects and gaps in your teeth.
We can use a tooth-like substance to change tooth shape or color, increase the size if you have gaps, or repair a defect. Bonding is a multi-layered process in which we apply a durable, enamel-like composite resin to the tooth, then use a special light to harden or “cure” the bond. The results can be miraculous.
Like other types of cosmetic dentistry, bonding can be used as subtly or extensively as you desire. We can use the composite tooth-colored material to fix minor imperfections, or completely transform teeth with a smile makeover. We place the bonding material in a thin layer over discolorations or use it to build up multiple layers for larger repairs. After we apply each layer, we dry it with a special light, setting it in place. Then, we smooth and polish the finished results.
It takes a skilled dentist to match surrounding teeth and create a look that compliments your natural appearance, so contact Keith RR Gaught, DDS Family Dentistry by calling (919) 847-6453!
After a consultation with the dentist, we’ll discuss your treatment options and determine if cosmetic bonding is right for you. In many cases (if you’re interested in a complete smile makeover) we may recommend a combination of bonding, porcelain veneers, and/or crowns to fully restore your teeth and get them looking their best!
