Find out if bonding could improve the look of your smile painlessly.

You don’t need to go through hours of invasive dental procedures to get that fabulous smile. Find out how your BondingWinston Salem, NC dentist Dr. Denise Perrotta can easily improve small dental flaws to give you a healthier-looking smile.

What is dental bonding?

To cover minor dental imperfections, your Winston Salem dentist applies a tooth-colored plastic resin to your teeth, which is then hardened using a special laser to help bond the material to your tooth.

What issues can dental bonding fix?

Dental bonding can be a great option for these common situations:

  • Small chips and cracks
  • Discolorations
  • Gaps between teeth
  • To change the shape or size of a tooth
  • To fill a tooth after a cavity

If you are dealing with any of these problems then dental bonding might be the best treatment for you, so talk to your cosmetic dentist in Winston Salem to learn more.

What should I expect when I get dental bonding in Winston Salem?

What makes this a popular treatment for many of our patients is that it requires little to no tooth preparation. In fact, unless you are having a tooth filled after treating a cavity dental bonding won’t require anesthesia at all. This cosmetic treatment is completely painless and non-invasive.

We will help you decide which resin shade will best match your smile. Once we’ve matched the resin we will roughen the surface of the tooth and then apply a special liquid, which will help the resin bond with the tooth. Then we will apply this putty-like resin over your tooth and begin to contour and shape it until we have the desired look. Once complete, we will harden the resin with a laser and make any last minute adjustments before polishing it.

This whole process only takes between 30 minutes to one hour to complete and is completely painless. So, what are you waiting for? If you want to find out if dental bonding is the right dental treatment then turn to your Winston Salem, NC cosmetic dentist today.
