Dental bonding is a procedure that corrects small teeth imperfections with tooth-colored resin. The tooth is cleaned and prepared, and the resin is shaped over the tooth’s surface. Bonding is quick, easy and affordable, and very effective when done by a skilled dentist. At Brown Family Dentistry Group, we use high-quality bonding materials and a meticulous color-matching process to ensure healthy, natural-looking results.
For major tooth imperfections like severe stains, large fractures and big gaps, porcelain veneers are recommended. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the tooth (like false fingernails for your teeth). Porcelain is more durable and stain-resistant than composite resin, and porcelain mimics natural enamel perfectly.
Dr. Brown offers mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings as better-looking alternatives to silver amalgam. Tooth-colored fillings are made of composite resin that bonds directly to the tooth enamel. Tooth-colored fillings are not only invisible; they also make the tooth stronger.
Professional teeth whitening is one of the best and easiest ways to transform your smile. Dr. Brown will apply peroxide gel to your teeth and leave it on for a few minutes. The whitening gel is then rinsed out. You can continue the whitening process at home by wearing special trays while you sleep.
