Enhance Your Smile with A Dentist in Cary You Can Trust
Do you have a chipped or broken tooth? How about mercury-silver fillings that show when you smile? Dr. Russo and his trained professionals can provide an affordable solution to help repair or enhance your smile with our general dentist practices in Cary, Durham and the Raleigh metro area.
What Is Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is when a tooth-colored composite resin is applied to your front teeth to fix problems ranging from:
- Chipped teeth
- Broken corners of your teeth
- Enamel defects
- Replacement of silver-mercury (amalgam) fillings
Dr. Russo will apply a dentin bonding agent to the tooth, which etches and roughens the surface to help the bonding material stay in place. A putty-like bonding material is then placed on the tooth’s surface, where it is shaped and sculpted to look like a natural tooth. A special UV light is used to harden and set the composite material. Finally, Dr. Russo will polish and buff the tooth for a smooth finish.
Advantages of Dental Bonding
- An affordable solution to repair stained, broken or chipped teeth
- A lower-cost alternative to porcelain veneers
- It is a fast, one-visit solution to treat your front teeth
- Composite material matches the color of your teeth for natural-looking results
- A safe alternative to silver-mercury fillings
Disadvantages of dental bonding are when the tooth-colored composite resin loses its luster over time and does not reflect light as vividly. The dental bonding procedure will then need to be re-applied. You can see if Dental Bonding is the right procedure by calling our office today.
