Dental Bonding: An Affordable Way to Enhance Your Smile

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses tooth-colored resin to improve the appearance of discolored or chipped teeth. Dr. Joseph D. Murray and Dr. William Alexander offer dental bonding at their Atlanta, GA, practice as an alternative to porcelain veneers. At J.D. Murray, DDS, & Associates, we will work tirelessly to ensure stunning cosmetic results that will blend beautifully with your teeth. 

Is Dental Bonding a Good Option for You?

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Discoloration, especially internal staining
  • Small gaps in your smile
  • Slightly crooked or rotated teeth

If you desire dramatic cosmetic results, but you are not a candidate for veneers, bonding can be an excellent alternative. To place veneers, Dr. Murray or Dr. Alexander will need to reshape your teeth in preparation for treatment. In contrast, bonding does not require any enamel removal. Therefore, it may be a suitable treatment, even if you have suffered some enamel erosion or do not want to undergo an irreversible procedure.

Dental Bonding Treatment

For your dental bonding procedure, we will use a specialized composite resin. We will tint the resin to match your natural tooth and blend seamlessly with your smile. Before placing the resin, Dr. Murray or Dr. Alexander may coat your teeth in a mild chemical solution, which will gently etch the enamel. The solution will not hurt or affect the structure of your teeth, but will allow a stronger bond between your tooth and the resin.

Bonding can transform your appearance and correct a variety of cosmetic issues for a brighter, more even smile. In turn, this can rejuvenate your entire face, giving you a huge boost of self-confidence. 

We will then place the composite resin. Dr. Murray or Dr. Alexander will shape the material, making sure to conceal flaws and refine the shape of your teeth, as desired. Our team is highly experienced with this cosmetic procedure and can ensure quality results. When the bonding is in place, we will use a curing light to harden the resin. Finally, we will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a proper bite and will polish your teeth. When finished, the resin will have a smooth finish and a natural shine.

The Benefits of Dental Bonding

Bonding can transform your appearance and correct a variety of cosmetic issues for a brighter, more even smile. In turn, this can rejuvenate your entire face, giving you a huge boost of self-confidence. 

In addition to the cosmetic benefits of bonding, the treatment offers a number of practical advantages. This procedure is very reasonably priced. If you want the effects of veneers, but you are watching your budget, bonding offers a great alternative. Though the results will not last as long as porcelain veneers, it is easy and affordable to undergo touchup treatments. Bonding is also a conservative treatment, and it does not require permanent alterations to your teeth. As a result, bonding is reversible, and it will not involve discomfort or any recovery time.
