When a patient wishes to improve the appearance of their smile, Dr. Roxanne Lawrence may suggest dental bonding in Jackson, Mississippi. During dental bonding, our dentist will apply a tooth-colored resin to your teeth and bond it in place to improve or restore the beauty of your smile. Our dentist may recommend dental bonding to:
• Repair decayed teeth
• Fix chipped or cracked teeth
• Lighten badly stained teeth
• Lengthen teeth
• Repair misshapen teeth
• Protect exposed tooth roots
Dental bonding is a quick and easy cosmetic procedure. Our dentist needs only about 30 to 60 minutes to bond each tooth. Before performing dental bonding, our dentist will select a shade of composite resin that will match the color of your natural teeth. Your tooth will be roughened and a conditioning liquid is applied to ensure for a strong bonding process. Our dentist then applies the bonding material to your tooth. The material is molded and smoothed to the ideal shape. Our dentist will use an ultraviolet light or a laser to cure or harden the material. The final restoration is then trimmed, shaped, and polished.
