Dental Bonding ResultsIf you have an imperfection in your smile, no matter how small, it can cause you to feel as though you cannot laugh or speak without feeling self-conscious. However, dental bonding can help you repair your teeth’s flaws and restore your smile to one you can be proud of. Find out more about dental bonding with Dr. Salvatore Guerriero and Dr. Salvatore Colletta at Nashua Smile Makers in Nashua, NH.

What is dental bonding? 
Dental bonding uses a composite resin material to reshape the tooth. Often used in conjunction with dental contouring, which reshapes the tooth and composite resin, dental bonding utilizes a method in which your dentist molds the resin directly onto the tooth. After moving the resin into its correct shape, your dentist uses a special UV light to set the resin, hardening it into its final form. Dental contouring then helps reshape the entire tooth, resin and all, into its new, more beautiful shape.

Can dental bonding help me? 
Dental bonding can help people in a variety of situations. However, a good candidate is in good dental health with no teeth decay or gum disease. These issues should be resolved prior to your bonding treatment. Some common problems repaired by dental bonding include:

  • chipped teeth
  • cracked teeth
  • uneven teeth
  • slight misalignments
  • slight gaps
  • discolorations
  • too-short teeth

Dental Bonding Treatments in Nashua, NH
Bonding is non-invasive and does not require your dentist to administer any local anesthetic to numb the area of the procedure. The entire treatment only takes minutes and can have a huge impact on your smile. If you think you could benefit from dental bonding, you should consult with your dentist to ensure that this is the best treatment for you. Some patients may benefit more from other cosmetic dental treatments like dental veneers or teeth whitening.
