Dental bonding is the use of composite resin, a strong, moldable plastic, to repair minor cosmetic dental flaws. Dr. Scott A. Ervin, our seasoned dentist, can use dental bonding to improve your smile in just one quick visit to our dental office. We may suggest dental bonding in Terrell, Texas, to:
- Repair breaks and chips in teeth
- Lengthen unusually short teeth
- Close gaps and spaces between teeth
- Reshape unsightly or damaged teeth
When you come in to receive dental bonding, we will first pick out a shade of composite resin to perfectly match your natural smile. Then, the composite resin is applied directly to the surface of your tooth. Composite resin is soft and has a consistency like putty, allowing Dr. Scott A. Ervin and the rest of our team to shape and mold it until it reaches the perfect shape. Once shaped, the composite resin is hardened with a special light and polished to a beautiful shine. If you utilize good oral hygiene habits and take care of your new smile properly, dental bonding can last for many years. If you are embarrassed to smile because of flaws and imperfections in your teeth, please do not hesitate to contact our dental office today. We would love to talk with you about the benefits of dental bonding and help you schedule your appointment with Dr. Scott A. Ervin. We hope to hear from you soon!
