Tooth bonding can be the perfect solution for a both dental health and cosmetic concerns. A member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), Dr. Elizabeth Lee is an experienced and highly trained cosmetic dentist who can provide natural looking results with tooth bonding to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Tooth bonding can be an economical alternative to more advanced and permanent treatment options such as dental veneers.
Dr. Lee may recommend tooth bonding to treat:
- Damaged or cracked teeth
- Broken teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Fix gaps between teeth
- Change the shape of a tooth
Tooth Bonding: What To Expect
The tooth bonding procedure is typically completed during a single visit to our Memphis dentist office. Dr. Lee will begin the process by preparing the affected tooth/teeth, removing a minimal amount of structure to accommodate the tooth colored composite resin. She has a trained eye for the aesthetic and will skillfully mold the material onto the tooth surface to create a natural look and comfortable bite.
Once complete, the new material will be cured with a special light and polished for a natural luster that will blend beautifully with your smile. While not considered a permanent restoration, tooth bonding can last for 10 years or more with routine dental care and good oral hygiene.
