When a patient wishes to improve the look of their teeth, Gerald V. Hansen, DDS, may recommend dental bonding in Reno, Nevada. Dental bonding is the procedure by which our dentist places tooth-colored materials on your teeth and then bonds them into place to improve your smile’s appearance. Our dentist may recommend dental bonding to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Fix chipped or cracked teeth
- Improve the appearance of stained teeth
- Close gaps in your smile
- Lengthen teeth
- Improve the shape of teeth
- Protect tooth roots that have been exposed because of receding gums
Dental bonding has many advantages. Bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures. Bonding can be performed in one dental appointment, unlike veneers and dental crowns. Bonding requires less tooth preparation than veneers and dental crowns. Anesthesia is not required when dental bonding is performed unless the bonding material is being used to fill a cavity. Bonded teeth are cared for in the same way that you care for your natural teeth—brush them twice daily and floss once daily.
