Dental Bonding

Dental Bonding | Ricardo Guillen, D.D.S., P.L.L.C. | Portland, TX DentistWhen you think of a beautiful smile, you probably think of bright, white, straight teeth. Maybe your own smile doesn't fit that description; but that doesn't mean it never will. In fact, with dental bonding, you have one of the easiest, fastest and most affordable cosmetic dental treatments at your disposal. Dental bonding can repair stained, cracked or chipped teeth.

During a dental bonding procedure, a cosmetic dentist applies a tooth-colored resin to your tooth and then uses a special light to harden or "bond" the material to the tooth. It may seem simple, but the ability to bond restorative materials to enamel has, in fact, revolutionized your dentist's ability to prevent and prepare cavities, as well as improve the overall appearance of your smile.

Dental bonding is commonly used to restore decayed, cracked and chipped teeth; improve the appearance of stained teeth; close spaces between gapped teeth; and change the shape of teeth.
