Do You Have a Minor Cosmetic Dental Problem? Learn about Dental Bonding, Available in Our Granada Hills Office

Small cosmetic problems can have a big impact on your smile, and when they do, your confidence may suffer. The team at Viva Smile in Granada Hills can help you regain the appearance you deserve, and your full sense of satisfaction with your smile. Just give us a call to talk about dental bonding.

What is Dental Bonding?

The bonding procedure is performed for small repairs and cosmetic improvement. Bonding could also be referred to as direct veneer treatment, and is sometimes put into the category of a tooth-colored filling. Regardless of what it is called, the important note about bonding is that it achieves great results with minimal investment, and that is what our patients love.

Bonding involves the expert placement of a resin material that is colored to perfectly match your shade of enamel. Each tooth that is bonded is given intense attention that requires up to 60 minutes, depending on the extent of repair. After the ideal shade of composite resin has been selected, the tooth is prepared to accept the bond. To do this, we slightly "rough-up" the surface using a liquid conditioner. After this step, the tooth-colored resin is applied and shaped. Ultraviolet light hardens the material, which we then perfect with further shaping and polishing.

Why Choose Dental Bonding in Granada Hills

With choices such as porcelain veneers and crowns available, why would you choose to have a tooth or teeth bonded? There are several reasons that our patients select this conservative method of treatment.

  • Bonding is versatile, capable of disguising stains, cracks, chips, minor gaps, and odd shaping.
  • Minimal tooth preparation is necessary, preserving the natural structure of each tooth.
  • Bonding is more conservative than dental crowns and veneers.
  • Only one treatment is needed to makeover your smile with bonding.

Your smile is an important part of your sense of self. We take pride in preserving structure and beautifully enhancing teeth with straightforward treatments like dental bonding. Call our office in Granada Hills to learn more.
