Dental Bonding in Cypress, TX

If you have chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth, Emmy Dental is able to help with dental bonding in Cypress, TX. Tooth bonding is a great alternative to many other cosmetic dental procedures for restoring the look of the smile. Whether or not bonding is a better choice than veneers for you depends on a number of factors. We recommend that you come in for one of our thorough exams, and let our dental professionals take a look. They are able to help you decide the best course of action to improve the look of your teeth.

The Benefits of Our High Quality Tooth Bonding

Tooth bonding is a great way to repair the damage caused by decay, by filling cavities with composite resins. If you have chipped off a small section of an otherwise healthy tooth, this is also the ideal method for repair. However, there are many cosmetic uses of bonding outside of just basic repairs.

Our dentist is able to match the resin used to the color of your existing enamel, so it always looks natural when we bond your teeth. At the same time, we are able to improve the look of discolored teeth, by covering all of your teeth in a lighter colored tooth bonding resin. Because of how easy it is to shape and mold the material into place, this method is often used to make teeth look longer, close spaces between teeth, and even change the overall shape of your teeth. If you are looking for an alternative to amalgam fillings or simply want to improve your appearance, this is a great method to choose.

Your Source for Dental Inlays & Onlays

What do you do when your tooth is too damaged for fillings, but not damaged enough to justify having a full crown? Installing a crown prematurely could result in doing unnecessary damage to your tooth, but dental inlays allow you to keep most, or all, of your healthy tooth, while replacing the damaged portions. Depending on the damage, we may use dental onlays or inlays to restore your tooth to full functionality.

How We Perform the Dental Bonding Process

We start preparing your teeth first by making the surface a little rough and picking the perfect shade of dental bonding. Next a conditioning liquid is applied to the surface of your tooth to aid in the bonding process. The resin, which is almost like putty, is applied, molded, and smoothed to match perfectly with your desired shape and look. Finally we use an ultraviolet light or laser to harden the resin and finish with some final touch ups. The entire process takes around 30 to 60 minutes per tooth on average, although it may take less time if we are only fixing a small area.

If you are interested in dental bonding, make an appointment with us today. Our experts will walk you through the process, and help you decide what is right for you. We want all of our patients to walk away with a smile on their face.
