When a patient can't get veneers or crowns to improve the appearance of their teeth, dental bonding may be the next best thing. It's a dental bondingtemporary yet reliable solution to several common cosmetic issues that patients struggle with. Find out more about this simple cosmetic procedure that's available at the office of Dr. Bradbury and Dr. Amato, a team of dentists that serve the West Hartford, CT area, and see if you're a good candidate.

About Dental Bonding
Bonding is the process of adding dental-grade composite resin material to the surfaces of the teeth to repair damage and fix imperfections. The dentist applies the resin in layers and uses a curing light to bond it. Once the material becomes solid, it can be smoothed out and contoured as needed by your West Hartford dentist. While the material is not as strong as porcelain, it will provide you with a better looking smile for about 5-10 years.

Are You a Candidate for Bonding?
Minor tooth problems can be fixed with dental bonding. It is most commonly used on the front teeth that show when you smile. If you have any of the following issues you may be a candidate:

- small gaps around the teeth
- teeth with jagged edges that need reshaping
- teeth that are smaller than the others
- teeth that are chipped due to injury

Benefits of Tooth Bonding
Patients often choose dental bonding for a number of reasons:

- It's a very quick procedure (as little as 15-30 minutes in many cases).
- It’s non-invasive and doesn’t require any tooth material to be removed.
- There's no need for sedation for the appointment.
- It's a less expensive option compared to veneers, crowns or braces.
- Your tooth color can be matched very closely.

A Beautiful Smile with Bonding
Many patients are surprised to learn how much their smile can be improved with a simple dental bonding procedure. Call Drs. Bradbury & Amato, PC today at (860) 561-3050 to make an appointment with a West Hartford, CT dentist.
