Dental Bonding in Houston, TX

Greenway Dental Center for Esthetic and Implant Dentistry offers bonding as a cosmetic treatment for chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. Bondings are made of a composite resin that is the same color as your teeth, so you are not only restoring the health of your teeth, but you’re also restoring the sparkle to your smile.

A dentist near you offers this procedure as an alternative to receiving crowns or veneers when the teeth are still healthy enough only to need a small medical intervention to be restored to proper health. Obtaining bonding near you doesn’t involve any risks, and you can be assured that the fillings won’t be noticeable when the treatment is over.

What to Expect with Bonding at Greenway Dental Center for Esthetic and Implant Dentistry

Your dentist in Houston, TX will work with you to discuss the available options and discuss with you if this is the right fit for your needs. After you and Dr. Ramirez agree to the treatment, you can make an appointment to come into Greenway Dental Center for Esthetic and Implant Dentistry for the procedure.

There isn’t any prep work that you will need to do. Often anesthesia isn’t necessary for dental bonding in Houston, TX, but you can always discuss what is available to you with your dentist. Your dentist will roughen the surface of your tooth so that the bonding material can get a firm grasp of the tooth’s surface.

Before the bonding is applied, a conditioning liquid is first used to help the solidification process further. The bonding is then applied and molded to the desired area. This bonding will match the color of your tooth so it will blend right in after it’s been trimmed and polished, so it matches the look and feel of your natural teeth.

All in all, this procedure is quick and relatively painless. Dr. Ramirez has years of experience performing these kinds of techniques, and we would love to answer any questions or concerns you may have on what to expect or what is best for you and your circumstances.
