Dental Bonding – Park Cities | Dallas, TX
Quick. Easy. Beautiful.
Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured or discolored teeth? You may be a good candidate for dental bonding. Bonding refers to the placement of tooth-colored resin to correct chipped and broken teeth, discolored teeth and in some cases, space between teeth. The material comes in a wide range of shades and can be molded and sculpted to create almost any shape or contour. Bonding is generally considered more conservative than veneers or other cosmetic dentistry. The benefits of bonding include the ability to maintain the natural structure of the tooth and the ability to color and sculpt the resin to create natural looking teeth.

The Dental Bonding Procedure
There are two types of bonding in dentistry, direct composite bonding and adhesive bonding. Direct composite bonding refers to the process of the dentist using materials to repair or enhance teeth as opposed to adhesive bonding that refers to the process of attaching a restoration, like veneers, to a tooth. This section refers to the direct composite method where Dr. Hamlett will apply the bonding materials directly to the teeth and expertly sculpt the materials to the surfaces of the teeth that show most prominently when you smile. To achieve the desired look the patient wants, Dr. Hamlett must take into consider the dental health of the patient as well as the artistic factors that will bring out their winning smile.
Are You a Candidate for Dental Bonding?
Teeth bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment and can enhance the appearance and functionality of teeth that suffer from many conditions such as those mentioned above. To determine your candidacy Dr. Hamlett will first have to determine if you are eligible for teeth bonding and if your teeth will benefit from the procedure. Dental bonding is typically reserved for teeth that have mild to moderate dental issues. If you have teeth that are extensively damaged Dr. Hamlett may recommend other procedures that may better benefit your smile, the functionality of your teeth, as well as your overall oral health. This will all be determined in your initial consultation that will consider your goals and dental health.
