Tooth Bonding Simpsonville, SC

Tooth Bonding An Overview

Dr. O’Malley offers cosmetic tooth bonding for restoring damaged teeth or addressing minor cosmetic concerns. Fix discolored teeth or misshapen teeth. Completed in our Simpsonville dental office, tooth bonding is a relatively quick, economical, and effective treatment for many dental concerns.

Tooth bonding involves the careful sculpting of a composite resin material onto the prepared surface of a tooth. The material is color matched to existing natural teeth. It will be smoothed and polished for a natural feel and fit.

Available for patients of all ages, Tooth bonding can be an economical alternative to porcelain veneers for a younger patient that is still growing, or adult patients not yet ready for dental veneers. Dental bonding is considered a temporary dental restoration and typically lasts about 10 years, although good oral hygiene and dental care can extend the longevity of your treatment.

An experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. O’Malley can work with you to create a beautiful and healthy new smile with a tooth bonding procedure, boosting your confidence and improving your overall dental health.

Tooth Bonding What to Expect

Tooth bonding is very similar to a dental filling. Dr. O’Malley can complete your tooth bonding in a single visit and you can return to your normal daily routine.

To begin, the tooth is prepped by etching the surface where the composite material will be placed. A local anesthetic is often used to numb the area and help you relax during treatment.

Once the tooth surface is prepared, Dr. O’Malley carefully sculpts the color matched composite resin into the desired shape, ensuring it blends with your natural smile. The new material is adhered and sealed using a special light, then polished for a smooth texture and natural luster.

To maintain your tooth bonding for as long as possible, brush and floss the teeth daily and be sure to visit with us twice a year for routine preventive dental care. We will look for any signs of wear or damage during your regular visits and can repair minor concerns quickly and conservatively.
