Dental Bonding in Hampton

Let us help you achieve the perfect smile for you. If you have damaged teeth or even dental imperfections, then come to Mellen Dental for dental bonding in Hampton. This procedure is excellent for a person who does not need a crown, but still requires dental work to restore a damage tooth or teeth. In addition, it is one of the fastest and easiest cosmetic dental procedures to perform, requiring very little advance preparation.  Tooth bonding not only helps your teeth look better, but it is an effective way to save a tooth if it has problems.

Unlike crowns and veneers that need to be customized in a lab, dental bonding can usually be provided in one office visit unless we need to perform bonding for several teeth. A few of the reasons people need teeth bonding include:

  • To Fix Misshapen Teeth
  • To Cover Discolored Teeth
  • To Protect Roots (If Gums Are Receding)
  • To Enlarge Small Teeth
  • To Fill Gaps between Teeth
  • To Repair Decayed Teeth 
  • To Repair Chipped or Cracked Teeth 

How to Determine if Tooth Bonding Is Right for You

Find out if dental bonding is the best choice in your case. Out dentist examines the tooth in question to decide whether bonding is the right procedure.

Bear in mind, bonding isn't suitable in all cases. For example, it cannot be used on teeth that experience a lot of pressure from chewing or biting. It's also not good for covering large areas that have decay or major tooth damage. If you have small imperfections on your teeth, bonding could be the answer. 

What Is the Procedure for Tooth Bonding?

Enjoy a comfortable and pain-free visit when you come to our office for dental bonding. In fact, most of the time, we will not even have to numb you to perform the procedure. After determining your needs and explaining everything to you, we then select the right color of bonding material. Doing so ensures that the bond closely matches the color of your teeth. 

After that, our dentist etches the surface of the tooth or teeth. This ensures that the bonding material adheres to it. We apply adhesive to your tooth and the bonding material. We then shape the material, much like a sculpture, to make it look natural. Finally, we use ultraviolet light to harden it. Our dentist has more than 40 years of experience in the field and has performed this procedure on many satisfied patients.
