Correcting Smaller Imperfections with our Palo Alto Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to correct imperfections. A composite material is applied to the tooth, sculpted into the ideal shape, and then the bonding is hardened and polished. The finished restoration blends perfectly to the natural shape and structure of your teeth. While not a great solution for major problems, bonding is effective for smaller imperfections.

Dental bonding is ideal for:

  • Small imperfections
  • Chipped teeth
  • Closing small gaps between teeth
  • Tooth-colored fillings

A gentle acid is applied to the teeth to roughen and etch the surface, which is important for helping to hold the bonding material in place. The bonding material is then applied and shaped to create the desired effect. When the process is finished, a special light is used to set and harden the restoration. The final step is to polish the composite material to create a smooth and natural looking finish.

A Brand New Smile with Porcelain Veneers

Today’s porcelain veneers are designed to look like natural tooth enamel. These thin porcelain shells are used on the front surfaces of the teeth to create beautiful smiles. The material is matched to the natural color and shape of the teeth, so most people will have no idea that you have veneers. This procedure can be used to correct a variety of imperfections.

Porcelain veneers are used to correct:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Discoloration that doesn’t respond to whitening
  • Minor alignment problems

At Phillip Fletcher Dental DDS, we use direct veneers, which is a more conservative and non-invasive procedure. Unlike other methods, this method does not require us to cut away the natural structure of the teeth. The veneers are custom made for your teeth and fitted perfectly for a beautiful and durable restoration.

A Well-Thought Out Dental Plan

Dental bonding and porcelain veneers in Palo Alto are usually considered to be cosmetic procedures by insurance carriers. As a result, many dental insurance plans won’t cover these treatments. We want to help our patients afford the care they need.
