Teeth Bonding Katy, TX

Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment for our patients in Katy, TX. Dental bonding uses a biocompatible material that we apply to prepared teeth and cure to the tooth’s surface. Dr. Catherine Wilder and Dr. Lauren Shepard recommend tooth bonding for patients with minor cosmetic concerns. Tooth bonding adds shape and balance to the smile with quick and efficient treatment.

What are the Benefits of Tooth Bonding Treatment?

Bonding treatment can help patients restore the appearance of their teeth. We use dental bonding to:

  • Repair chipped and cracked teeth
  • Reshape worn or misshapen teeth
  • Address permanent tooth stains
  • Lengthen shortened teeth
  • Correct the look of minor misalignment
  • Close gaps between teeth

Ask our team about tooth bonding if you have any of these dental problems. We can help determine if dental bonding or another of our cosmetic treatments is right for you. Tooth bonding treats many of the same conditions that porcelain veneers treat but in a temporary way. Dental bonding is removable and reversible, making it a treatment option even for children.

It’s also ideal for patients not ready for a permanent restoration. Other treatments, like dental crowns, require more tooth preparation. We remove as little of your natural tooth as possible during bonding treatment for a natural look.

Bonding can allow you to try things on and see if you like the restoration’s look. Then you can decide if the look is right for you. We can match the composite resin to your natural teeth so your treated teeth are indistinguishable from untreated teeth.

Bonding is also ideal because it’s something almost everyone is eligible for. Because it’s removable, it works for just about anyone. It’s also one of the most affordable dental treatments available. Even if you’re on a budget, dental bonding is easily affordable. It doesn’t take much time, either. Bonding can quickly be done in one visit to our dental office. You can return to normal activities immediately, including eating and drinking.

Teeth Bonding Treatment in Katy, TX

We numb the mouth with a local anesthetic to begin cosmetic bonding treatment. Then, we clean the teeth and etch the tooth enamel to create a proper bonding surface. We color-match the bonding material to the natural teeth.

We then sculpt biocompatible resin material to the teeth. Once the material is in the correct shape and shade, we cure it with a special light. Finally, we polish the bonded teeth.

Bonded teeth can be cared for like natural teeth. Routine dental visits and good oral hygiene also help maintain longer-lasting results. If your bonded teeth chip or discolor, we can provide additional treatment. Also, if you want a more permanent treatment, ask us about porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are similar to dental bonding but last longer. However, veneers may be more costly and usually have a longer treatment time. Still, tooth bonding is beneficial for more minor cosmetic concerns.

It’s essential to recognize that the bonding material can stain. However, it’s not responsive to traditional whitening treatment options. If your bonding gets stained, we’ll have to replace the bonding material with a new one that blends into your smile.

The dental bonding material is very durable but not up to the same standard as natural teeth. Try to avoid biting down directly on hard foods with the teeth that are bonded. The material is designed to last for years, especially if you care correctly.
