At Soft Touch Dentistry, we can recommend a variety of treatments for the same dental concerns. A patient can choose depending on different factors such as risk factors, aesthetic value, and budget. If you are looking for the least expensive treatment that will be completed in only one visit, then composite bonding is a good alternative for you. Other restorative procedures will require you to come back because the appliance has to be fabricated at the laboratory, but bonding is done on the spot and patients can immediate appreciate the results after one visit.
Composite bonding is generally used to improve the general appearance of the tooth. However, it can be a fast and cheap alternative to other restorative procedures and can be used to treat chipped or broken teeth, teeth that have stained or discolored, gaps or spaces in between teeth, minor cases of crooked teeth, and damage to bridge facings. It can also be used as a cosmetic alternative to silver amalgam fillings, to protect an exposed and damaged tooth root, and to repair exposed areas due to receding gums.
Aside from being budget friendly, this has become the treatment of choice for my patients because it is minimally invasive and the patients can see immediate results because it only requires one visit to complete. Composite bonding can be easily repaired, the whole procedure is quick and painless, and the final results are very natural looking.
