Bonding is an effective way to repair chipped or broken teeth. Bonding is typically painless and can yield dramatic results in a single office visit to your Miami dentist. Bonding hides natural flaws in the teeth by placing a thin plastic coating on the front surface of the teeth.
After treating the tooth surface, a dental composite bonding material is applied. The puttylike material is then sculpted, shaped and colored to suit the patient’s needs. We use a high-intensity light to harden the plastic. Finally, the new tooth surface is smoothed and polished.
Ways Improve Your Smile with Dental Veneers or Dental Bonding
No matter the state of your teeth, we’ve got ways to give you the perfect smile. Two ways to get a movie-star smile (and believe me, it’s how many movie stars get theirs!) are veneers and bonding, according to Miami dentist Dr. Mereos.
The dental veneer is actually a thin piece of porcelain or composite material about the size of a fingernail. Once the custom-made veneer is bonded onto the tooth, it becomes extremely strong. It also blends in with the remaining tooth structure so that it is unnoticeable to the naked-eye. Once in place, it looks, feels, and functions just like a regular tooth. If you have any questions about bonding or veneers, or if you’re interested in a cosmetic consultation, please call our office to schedule an appointment.
