Azusa area patients ask, what is dental bonding?
Dr. Brianne Luu and the team of Gentle Care Dentistry of San Gabriel Valley are here to provide Azusa area patients with a wide range of services to help them achieve and maintain healthy smiles. From children to adults, her practice is equipped to assist individuals of all ages including new and existing patients. She invests in some of the latest technologies and techniques while also maintaining many tried-and-true solutions for cosmetic enhancements including dental bonding.
Dental bonding uses a composite resin material that can be formed around teeth to cover up imperfections or repair a tooth that has been broken or chipped. Patients may use dental bonding in lieu of porcelain veneers; often more costly and are not reversible. Dental bonding has several advantages including the fact that it is much less expensive and can be replaced easily. Here are some situations in which patients may consider using dental bonding:
- Gaps between teeth
- Broken teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Covering teeth with permanent staining
- Reshaping a tooth
Dr. Brianne Luu finds that dental bonding can be a great alternative for patients seeking an economical way of improving their smile. Additionally, dental insurance policies are often more likely to cover dental bonding than solutions; such as porcelain veneers. Dental bonding is relatively inexpensive and patients love the ability to rejuvenate their smile without the cost associated with other aesthetic services.
Another benefit of composite resin dental bonding is the ability to place it the same day. Porcelain veneers require several appointments to complete the process from start to finish; while patients can come into our practice to request dental bonding and leave with a brand new smile! It can be performed on one or more teeth, depending on the needs of the patient at the time of their appointment and the desires they have to enhance his or her smile.
At Gentle Care Dentistry of San Gabriel Valley, we encourage our patients to take the time to learn about all the cosmetic treatments we offer in our practice including the ease and simplicity of dental bonding.
