Tooth Bonding

Albertville and Guntersville, Alabama

Tooth bonding can be an optimal solution for fractured, decayed, chipped, or discolored teeth. Wall Street Dentistry of Albertville uses the finest quality materials to ensure perfect results from your tooth bonding procedure.

What to expect from a dental bonding procedure

Bonding begins by slightly removing a small amount of tooth structure, specifically any decayed or weakened areas of the tooth. Prepping the tooth allows for a proper bond and ensures we are adhering the material to a healthy tooth.

Then, we select a composite resin material that best matches the shade of your surrounding teeth. The resin is then placed directly onto your tooth, filling in the areas that were removed.

During the last step, the dentist will smooth out the material, making any necessary adjustments to provide a natural look and feel to your tooth.

Dental Bonding vs. Veneers

Although bonding may sound similar to veneers, the procedures are quite different. Bonding procedures can typically be completed in one visit since we do not have to rely on a dental lab to construct any of the materials.

Bonding is typically best for teeth that need minimal repair, whereas veneers can help correct the appearance of the entire tooth, not just a particular area of the tooth.

Unlike veneers, bonding can be less expensive. However, some disadvantages to consider are that dental bonding may not be quite as strong. Bonding may not last as long as veneers, and bonding is more susceptible to staining.
