Dental Bonding in Birmingham, AL
Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth can all detract from your appearance, making you feel uncomfortable in social and business settings. Dental bonding at Cook Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is an effective cosmetic dental treatment that resolves these types of problems and delivers outstanding results.
With the wide array of cosmetic and restorative dental treatments available today, there is no reason for you to live with cosmetic flaws that make you unhappy. We think you deserve to love your smile, and it’s our goal to provide you with services like dental bonding that can truly transform your appearance.
What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a process that allows us to correct cosmetic problems with composite dental resin. This material resembles natural dental enamel and can be shaded to closely match the rest of your tooth and enhance the inherent beauty of your smile.
What Problems Can Be Fixed With Dental Bonding?
Since the composite material can be applied over existing dental enamel, it is an excellent choice for perfecting the appearance of stained or damaged teeth. But we can also use dental bonding to repair a wide variety of other cosmetic dental concerns. With bonding, we can:
- Repair broken, chipped, or cracked teeth
- Fill in uneven gaps and spaces between teeth
- Alter the shape of teeth for a more symmetrical appearance
- Provide a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings
If you’re not sure if dental bonding can correct your cosmetic problem, Dr. Cook will be happy to work with you to help you decide if bonding or another treatment will work best for your situation.
The Benefits of Bonding
Many patients choose dental bonding because it is one of the simplest and most affordable ways to change the appearance of their smile. If you’re like most of us, you probably have a full schedule that doesn’t allow much time for multiple dental visits.
Cosmetic treatments like crowns and veneers are very effective, but require several appointments. In most cases, bonding can be done in just one office visit.
Another important advantage compared to other treatments is that very little healthy enamel needs to be removed by Dr. Cook when preparing your tooth for bonding. Also, if you dread the idea of injections, you’ll be happy to know that, in many cases, we don't need to numb the tooth being treated.
