Dental Bonding in Atlanta
Do you hide your smile because of chips, cracks or other dental imperfections? Dental bonding is a great option if you are looking to achieve a beautifully rejuvenated and seamless smile that you can be proud to show off. This versatile treatment involves bonding tooth-colored resin material to the teeth for a smile that is both healthy and natural-looking.
Drs. Dina Giesler and Marianna Kovitch offer dental bonding in their state-of-the-art dental practice in Atlanta. The expert dentists can perform dental bonding as a standalone procedure or combine it with other dental treatments to help you achieve your dream smile.
What Can Dental Bonding Address?
Dental bonding can be used to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Hide small chips or cracks in teeth
- Conceal stains or discoloration
- Reshape misshapen or unevenly shaped teeth
- Fill in gaps between teeth
Candidacy for dental bonding is determined on a case-by-case basis. During your consultation, Dr. Giesler or Dr. Kovitch will examine your teeth and discuss your dental concerns and goals with you. Based on the information they gather, they may recommend combining dental bonding with one or more dental procedures. Rest assured that our team will design a customized treatment plan with your unique dental needs in mind.
Dental bonding is a relatively quick and easy procedure that can typically be completed in one appointment in our office. Before treatment, our dentists will use a special shade guide to select the resin color that best matches the color of your natural teeth. A gentle phosphoric acid solution will be applied to the tooth or teeth that will receive the bonding. This solution is used to create tiny channels on the tooth enamel so the bonding material can adhere more strongly to the tooth. Once this is complete, our dentists will apply the putty-like resin to the tooth and carefully mold it until the desired shape and size are achieved. Laser light will then be focused onto the tooth so the resin material can harden and bond with the tooth. Once the resin material has hardened, the dentists will make the final touches and polish the material for a natural-looking and seamless smile.
The results of dental bonding can last for many years, so long as you take proper care. We recommend you avoid or limit eating hard or sticky foods that can potentially crack the resin material. For this reason, patients should also avoid grinding or clenching their teeth. Like regular teeth, bonded teeth should be brushed twice a day and flossed daily. Routine dental checkups are key so Dr. Giesler or Dr. Kovitch can regularly monitor the function and health of your teeth.
