Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure for correcting various imperfections in teeth, such as discolorations, chips, cracks or gaps. Bonding improves the appearance of teeth to give you the smile you want. In addition to correcting imperfections in teeth, dental bonding can also be used as a dental filling. At Erickson Dental Care, Dr. Sten Erickson, Dr. Mart Erickson, and Dr. Rachel Erickson are your Grants Pass, OR, dentists for dental bonding.
Dental bonding is used to improve the appearance of teeth by concealing any visible imperfections. A resin material is applied over problem areas, such as cracks or stains, and is then hardened. As the material hardens, it permanently bonds with the tooth. Once dry, the resin blends in and looks like part of the natural tooth. Dental bonding can accomplish many of the same cosmetic fixes as veneers, dental crowns, and other options, but has the advantage of being quicker, more affordable and less complicated.
