Orthodontics and veneers can be invasive and expensive ways to improve your confidence in your smile. Bonding can be an ideal solution for repairing chipped or uneven teeth inexpensively and in a single visit.
Through cosmetic bonding, Dr. Whisenant is able to reshape and repair Dripping Springs smiles with composite resin, without anesthesia. Bonding is a durable dental treatment, typically lasting years before it wears enough to be replaced.
To prepare you for bonding, Dr. Whisenant will isolate the affected teeth and etch them with conditioning liquid. This will create small crevices that cause stronger adhesion between the teeth and the bonding agent.
Next, a bonding resin will cement the composite in place. Several layers of tooth-colored composite will be applied. The composite material and bonding resin will be shaped and hardened with a specially calibrated light, then buffed and polished until they blend naturally with the surrounding teeth.
