What Is Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a ceramic resin that is bonded on to the tooth and hardened with an intense light. First the tooth is etched to prepare for the bonding material. The process is simple and can be achieved in one office visit. Dental Bonding is used for:

  • Repairing tooth decay damage
  • Improving tooth alignment
  • Filling gaps in teeth
  • Other cosmetic reasons as improving tooth color appearance

Using the best, tested, and trusted dental materials and techniques cosmetic fillings have replaced the old traditional amalgam fillings. This material is better because Dr. Phillips removes less of your biological tooth for a composite filling than what is needed to remove and replace an amalgam filling.

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is the dental specialty focused on optimizing the smile’s aesthetics. While some cosmetic dentistry interventions can also be used to stabilize the structure of damaged teeth, the primary objectives of this specialty are to enhance the appearance of the smile.

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed on top of a tooth that has been severely compromised by a large cavity or an injury. Dental crowns can also be placed on unusually small teeth to make them look larger. Dental crowns can be made of metal, ceramics or porcelain fused with metal. Dr. Phillips will work to provide you with a dental crown that addresses both your aesthetic and structural concerns for your teeth.

What is a veneer?

A veneer is a thin, tooth-shaped shell typically made of porcelain that can hide flaws like stains or chips in your teeth. Additionally, Dr. Phillips can use veneers to make an undersized tooth look proportionate to its neighbors or even “straighten” a slightly crooked tooth. Because veneers are made of porcelain, which looks quite similar to biological tooth enamel, this treatment results in a natural appearance. Veneers are customized, so they can be specifically designed to match the rest of your smile.

I have sensitive teeth, can I still whiten my teeth?

Pre-existing tooth sensitivity doesn’t automatically rule you out as a candidate for teeth whitening treatments. However, teeth whitening treatments can result in increased tooth sensitivity as a side effect, so if we know that you are already susceptible to this issue, we should plan carefully for your treatment. Dr. Phillips will work closely with you to take steps to minimize the risk of sensitivity, such as recommending a toothpaste specially formulated for sensitive teeth or spacing out follow-up treatments to reduce sensitivity.
