Dental Bonding Can Cover Various Concerns at Once
While porcelain veneers require some modification of your tooth structure, bonding can typically be completed with minimal preparation, allowing you to maintain as much healthy tooth structure as possible. And although veneers are a permanent commitment, dental bonding is reversible.
In most cases, Dr. Jeppsen can complete dental bonding in a single appointment lasting under one hour. During the dental bonding procedure, he will carefully conceal cosmetic imperfections using high-quality, tooth-colored composite resin to deliver natural-looking results.
A Brief Overview of Bonding
Dental bonding is a simple yet effective solution for patients with chips, cracks, gaps, or permanent stains affecting their smiles. To perform bonding, your dentist will select a shade of composite resin that closely matches the color of your teeth. He will then mold the resin around any imperfections, giving your affected tooth or teeth a more symmetrical, balanced appearance. After bonding the resin to your tooth, Dr. Jeppsen will harden the material with a curing light and lightly buff its surface to achieve the most natural appearance possible. In most cases, the procedure can be performed in just one appointment.
