Teeth that have been damaged due to trauma, infection or poor oral hygiene can pose an even greater risk to your oral health if not properly treated. At Lassiter Family Dentistry, we are committed to helping patients improve their oral health through comprehensive, complete family dentistry. For patients who have damaged teeth, dental bonding can be an ideal solution that quickly and effectively restores your smile. Dental bonding usually requires just one visits to our Kingsland dental office. During your visit to Lassiter Family Dentistry, family dentist Dr. James Lassiter will perform a comprehensive exam. During your comprehensive exam, Dr. Lassiter will look for any signs of complex dental problems like gum disease, TMJ, oral cancer, and tooth decay. Dr. Lassiter has advanced knowledge and years of experience treating patients with complex dental problems. If a complex dental problem is present, Dr. Lassiter will take the time to review your overall oral health and dental goals before planning an effective treatment to address your needs.
Dental bonding is a convenient, effective cosmetic dentistry treatment that can be used to correct a range of dental concerns including:
- misshapen teeth
- gapped teeth
- crooked teeth
- cracked or chipped teeth
- discolored teeth
Dental bonding is a less expensive alternative to porcelain veneers. During your visit, Dr. Lassiter will determine if dental bonding is right for you. If dental bonding is the ideal solution for your dental needs, Dr. Lassiter will begin with removing a small amount of surface structure from the affected tooth. Next, he will skillfully mold and color match a tooth-colored resin material onto the tooth. Using a special light, Dr. Lassiter will cure the tooth-colored resin onto the tooth, creating a natural looking, durable solution for your damaged teeth. The tooth will then be polished to reveal a beautiful, bright smile.
In order for you tooth bonding to last, Dr. Lassiter suggests that patients follow a proper oral hygiene routine and visit his Kingsland dental office twice a year for preventive care exams. If you are suffering from damaged teeth, schedule an appointment at Lassiter Family Dentistry in Kingsland, GA.
