Do you ever feel ashamed of your smile? Do you yearn for a radiant, attractive smile that you can be proud of? If your teeth have aesthetic flaws, consider asking Dr. Jerard Wilson about dental bonding in Rocklin, California.

What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is the application of a tooth-colored material to repair a tooth that is damaged or that has aesthetic flaws.

Why is it used?
Dental bonding is often used to repair chipped teeth. Bonding may also be recommended for an individual with large spaces between the teeth or for a tooth that is noticeably smaller than the other teeth. Our dentist may also recommend dental bonding if your teeth are very discolored.

Am I a candidate?
The bonding material is porous, so it is susceptible to staining. If you drink coffee often or are a smoker, dental bonding may not be for you. Also, dental bonding isn’t as strong as natural teeth. If you have a tendency to bite your nails or pens, or to chew ice, dental bonding may not be the best choice for you.

What should I expect?
When you come to Rocklin Dental for dental bonding treatment, our dentist will use a solution to roughen the teeth. This allows for ideal bonding to take place. A shade of bonding material is selected that either matches that of your natural teeth or that lightens the appearance of the teeth. The material is then applied to the teeth and shaped and sculpted for an aesthetic result. Then a special light is used to harden the material in place.
