Dental Bonding in Jacksonville
Minor flaws can be fixed quickly and affordably
Minor flaws can be corrected with dental bonding, a fast solution at an affordable price. Dental bonding is quick, easy and painless.
Results that look natural
Drs. Pennington and Parker are quite experienced with cosmetic bonding and can provide beautiful, natural looking results in a single visit. Composite resin is used as the bonding material.
The composite resin is applied to the surface of the tooth (or teeth) and hardened under a UV light. Your doctor will then gently and artfully sculpt the resin into the shape and size that works best for you. To finish the procedure, the resin is polished to a smooth, natural looking sheen.
Correcting minor flaws with Dental Bonding
Our doctors can easily and painlessly correct minor flaws in the tooth structure with cosmetic bonding. Imperfections such as cracks, chips or broken corners can be corrected. Bonding can also improve the appearance of discolored teeth.
Tooth colored fillings
Dental bonding composite material is also used for making tooth-colored fillings. These have a much more aesthetic appearance than old amalgam metal fillings, and may be safer as they don’t contain mercury like amalgam fillings do. Drs. Parker and Pennington can replace your old amalgam fillings with natural-looking tooth colored fillings.
After braces have been removed
Demineralization is a result of carbohydrates combining with sugar to create acids that erode the surface of the enamel. This process may occur when straightening teeth with traditional metal braces that use brackets adhered to the teeth, because it can be difficult to properly clean teeth.
This erosion beneath the metal brackets results in a chalky white spot on the tooth. With cosmetic bonding, we can cover any spots that are apparent after braces have been removed for a more attractive smile.
We understand that our patient’s have unique needs and desires. With that in mind, we always discuss options with you and decide on the best course of action together.
