Amherst Dentist Providing Affordable Teeth Bonding in Buffalo, NY
Unfortunately, not everyone is born with a perfect smile. Whether it is due to general wear and tear that our teeth have gone through over the years, or personal genetics, sometimes we want to improve our appearance without having to undergo a major surgical procedure. This is where teeth bonding can help! At Douglas Hamill DDS, we have over 20 years of experience helping patients throughout Buffalo and Western New York improve their appearance, and achieve the smile of their dreams with cosmetic bonding.
Teeth bonding, also known as dental bonding is a procedure that can help repair and reshape broken, chipped, and gapped teeth. Dental bonding is recommended for patients who are trying to restore teeth that are cracked, chipped, misaligned, broken, or to fill unsightly gaps between teeth. Many tooth defects can be repaired with tooth bonding including closing gaps, concealing stains, fixing cracks and fractures, and even treating sensitive teeth.
The process of bonding is very simple and effective, only requiring a single office visit in most cases. It is actually one of the least invasive procedures we perform at our office. The nice thing is, we will match the resin to your exact desired shade and color so that no one will even know you had dental bonding performed. Also, after we complete the procedure, you can go about your day speaking and eating just like normal. The entire bonding procedure typically takes about one hour or less from start to finish.
Some insurance companies will cover part, most or all of the teeth bonding procedure, especially when being performed for reconstructive reasons rather than cosmetic. If you are unsure of your insurance coverage and want to know if dental bonding is covered, contact us today and we would love to help you get the answers you need to make an informed decision about your oral health.
Who Are The Best Candidates for Teeth Bonding?
Since almost everyone will have at least some form of cosmetic issue with our teeth throughout their lives, cosmetic bonding can help almost anyone. The only requirement for dental bonding is that your underlying teeth must be healthy in order for us to perform the procedure. If you have issues such as decay, severely cracked teeth, or serious alignment problems that are causing malocclusion (bad bite issues), dental bonding may not be right for you. Also, if you are planning on getting your teeth whitened in the near future, we recommend you complete that process first so we can ensure we match the color of the resin to your new pearly whites.
Another effective treatment to help restore cracked, broken or chipped teeth is veneers. Although veneers can be more expensive, they can also provide a stronger and longer lasting solution to repairing chipped teeth, cracked teeth, unsightly gaps, or discolorations. To learn more about porcelain veneers, contact us today to arrange a free consultation.
