Cosmetic dentist Dr. Stephen Hoard offers a variety of dental services that can help improve the appearance and quality of your smile, including cosmetic bonding. Cosmetic bonding can be an excellent solution for patients who have damaged teeth due to dental trauma, tooth decay, or infection. Dr. Hoard will address any underlying issues before he performs the cosmetic bonding to ensure he is creating a healthy, stable foundation for your cosmetic procedure to last. Cosmetic bonding is a quick, effective solution for your dental needs. Visit our New Bern dental office to schedule an appointment and get the dental care you need.
Cosmetic bonding can be used to correct dental concerns, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Lengthen teeth
- Change the shape of teeth
- Fractured teeth
- Discolored teeth
Cosmetic bonding only requires one visit to our New Bern dental office. Dr. Hoard will examine your teeth to determine if cosmetic bonding is the right solution for your specific case. If not, we offer a range of cosmetic dentistry service that may be able to address your dental problems. If cosmetic bonding is the right solution for you, Dr. Hoard will begin the procedure by removing a small amount of tooth enamel from your tooth. We then coat the tooth with a small amount of conditioning liquid that is used as an adhesive for the composite resin material. We use a high-quality composite resin that can be shaped and color matched to match your natural smile. Once the composite resin has been molded into the desired shape, Dr. Hoard will use a special light to cure the composite resin onto the tooth.
To ensure that your cosmetic bonding lasts, it is vital that patients practice a proper oral hygiene routine and visit our New Bern dental office biannually for preventive care exams. Preventive care exams allow Dr. Hoard to thoroughly examine the teeth and identify any early signs of complex dental problems. To schedule an appointment, contact our North Carolina dental office.
