Cosmetic Bonding

One of the most popular repair options at Dothan Cosmetic Dentistry is bonding. This procedure has proven to be very successful as material for fillings for a tooth’s natural enamel and dentin. The dental composite used for bonding services can be shaded to match the existing color of teeth. Dr. Gaunt uses direct bonding at his Dothan, AL office to mend smiles. Whether your tooth has been chipped or permanently stained, bonding can help!

Your Tooth’s Enamel and Dentin

Teeth can withstand every day wear and tear because they are made up of individual layers of enamel and dentin. The outermost layer of tooth is called enamel, and it’s made up of strong calcium. Dental porcelain is the best substance to recreate enamel. The innermost portion of a tooth is dentin. This porous substance is an intricate mix of collagen and calcium, which is successfully imitated by dental resin. Dr. Gaunt can explain further during your appointment for bonding.

Bonding for Repairs

Bonding can be used for a variety of services, and is most often utilized to fill in teeth which have been chipped or cracked. Modern materials used in dental bonding can be altered to blend into your smile perfectly, so nobody will be the wiser about your repairs!
