Composite resin dental bonding is a tooth-colored material that can restore and repair chipped or broken teeth. It is one of many ways for patients to enhance their smiles when problems arise. Dr. Maegan Elam and her team in Bedford, Texas, work alongside patients to help them decide if dental bonding with composite resin is the right solution for their unique needs.
The process of using composite resin to restore the smile involves applying a thin coat of the material onto the tooth’s surface and then curing it with a special light. That ensures that the material forms a bond resistant to everyday wear and tear. The entire process is done in a single appointment, making this affordable, quick, and easy for anyone who needs cosmetic or functional improvements.
Dental bonding is an excellent option for many of our patients, and practically anyone can benefit from it. It provides same-day repair of chips and cracks, and with proper care, can last several years before it needs to be replaced. Our team will evaluate the patient during a consultation visit and determine if this material is the best solution. In some instances, Dr. Maegan Elam and her team may recommend alternative options such as porcelain veneers, which are thin ceramic facings that can be bonded over imperfections to achieve the same results. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, which allows them to last longer without replacement. We can help educate patients on their options and which is most appropriate for their needs.
