Not all chips, cracks or stains warrant a porcelain restoration. Sometimes these minor imperfections can be repaired easily and in one visit with dental bonding.
Dental bonding is a restorative method that is both conservative and inexpensive and requires less preparation of the tooth than a porcelain veneer or crown does. Though it sounds simple, it really isn’t. Because dental bonding is custom shaded and applied right in the office, the dentist mixing and placing the boding should have a good eye for aesthetics and an artist’s touch.
It takes a special touch to make direct bonding look and feel natural in your smile and Dr. Diaz has that touch! He has advanced training in all cosmetic dentistry techniques and can make sure your bonding is beautiful and natural.
We approach dental bonding carefully and delicately, using bonding materials the way an artist uses his palette. We never apply just use one color or one thickness – instead, we carefully mix and remix colors, blending and layering for the perfect effect.
For major repairs, we recommend using porcelain restorations such as porcelain veneers and crowns. On larger surfaces they last longer and resist staining better than large areas of dental bonding.
