Dental bonding in Uptown Houston, TX can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, or discolored, and is an alternative to veneers.
The tooth is prepared for the procedure by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. The resin is then trimmed, smoothed, and polished to a natural appearance.
The dental bonding procedure provided at our dental office near the Galleria can often be completed in a single office visit and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip, or break compared to your natural teeth. Dental bonding in Uptown Houston, TX typically lasts three to five years before repair is needed.
