Rogersville Cosmetic Bonding
For patients with minor cosmetic flaws like gaps, chips, and stains, we may be able to offer a minimally invasive, one-visit cosmetic solution – bonding. Dental bonding utilizes the same composite resin material utilized in tooth-colored fillings to correct or conceal minor smile flaws. The process is quick and painless. In fact, many patients don’t even require local anesthesia during this procedure. We simply remove any decayed or weakened tooth structure. Then, we apply the putty-like resin directly onto the tooth where it seeps into small pits and grooves in teeth. Next, Dr. Timothy D. Gunnin shapes the resin into place. Finally, we apply a curing light that hardens the resin, and finish the process by smoothing and polishing the treated tooth or teeth. In many cases, cosmetic bonding can offer an affordable, same-day treatment alternative for porcelain veneers.
