Tooth Bonding Houston, TX

Tooth Bonding An Overview

Tooth bonding is a cost effective alternative to dental veneers. Used to correct a range of cosmetic concerns, tooth bonding can be custom designed to match and blend with your natural smile. Tooth bonding is made from a malleable composite material that can last for many years. Tooth bonding is a convenient and economical dental treatment option for patients looking to correct cosmetic blemishes without the long term commitment of dental veneers.

Tooth Bonding Can Address:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Mishappen teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Close gaps between teeth

The tooth bonding procedure is quick and causes minimal to no discomfort. Bonding can last up to ten years with proper oral hygiene. Typically completed in just one visit to our Houston, TX dentist office, bonding provides an effective and efficient way to correct both tooth damage and cosmetic dental concerns.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

Tooth bonding is similar to receiving a dental filling. Dr. Pruitt will use a local anesthetic to numb the treated area. The tooth will be cleaned and prepared by removing a small amount of enamel to make space for the bonding.

Dr. Pruitt will color match the bonding material to your natural tooth. The bonding material will then be molded and formed into the appropriate shape for optimal aesthetic results and a comfortable bite.

Once both patient and dentist are satisfied with the appearance and fit of the bonding, a special light will be applied to harden the bonding material for a lasting result. Your new tooth surface will be polished and smoothed to blend with your remaining teeth.

With good oral hygiene and routine dental visits where we can check for any damage to the bonding, your new smile can last for many years.
