Cosmetic Bonding in The Woodlands, TX

As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Taylor understands the importance of having a smile that looks attractive and appealing. He knows that you see the details of your smile even if no one else does. So, if there is minor flaw in your smile that bothers you, then don’t try to convince yourself that “it’s nothing.” Dr. Taylor and his team will be happy to fix it for you with a simple procedure called cosmetic bonding.

What can cosmetic bonding repair?

Cosmetic bonding is perfect for minor fixes that can make a big difference in the overall look of your smile. For example, a small chip on one of your front teeth can be quite noticeable. Likewise, a tooth that is broken can be a detraction anywhere in your mouth. Cosmetic bonding can also make teeth that are a little bit crooked or that have gaps between them look better.

What exactly is cosmetic bonding?

Although the idea is simple, cosmetic bonding does require a certain amount of skill and artistry to achieve the desired goal: a better-looking tooth. With cosmetic bonding, Dr. Taylor uses a small amount of composite resin material—the same material that is used for a tooth-colored filling when you have a cavity—and applies it to your damaged, misshaped, or crooked tooth.

Composite resin is essentially a medical grade plastic, so it is completely safe and very strong. Moreover, different shades of composite resin can be blended together to perfectly match the color of your existing teeth. Dr. Taylor applies a little bit at a time and then uses a special light to quickly harden the bonded material. The process can be repeated any number of times until the optimal tooth shape is achieved. Finally, your tooth is polished to a finish that mimics the luster and sheen of your natural teeth.

How long does cosmetic bonding take?

Cosmetic bonding is a relatively quick procedure that Woodlands cosmetic dentist Dr. Taylor can complete in just one visit. In addition, this procedure rarely requires local anesthesia, so there’s no discomfort, no needles and no numbness when you have cosmetic bonding.

How long will cosmetic bonding last?

Cosmetic bonding will usually last between five to 10 years. A bonded tooth does not discolor the way your natural teeth do. So, teeth whitening may be necessary to keep your teeth as white as the bonding material.

Services from your Woodland Dentist

When you have a family to take care of, time can be in short supply. That’s why we provide a wide variety of dental services that can help smiles of all ages, eliminating tedious visits to other offices. From routine hygiene to revitalizing restorative care to Invisalign treatment and much more, Dr. Taylor, the dentist Woodlands residents trust, and his team have the skills and dedication needed to not only meet, but exceed your expectations.

At the foundation of our services is your twice-yearly dental checkup. These appointments serve as the baseline from which we develop a treatment plan to help you maintain your best oral health. Beyond cleaning and polishing your teeth, one of our skilled hygienists will also examine your teeth and gums, looking for signs of decay or gum disease. Periodically, we will also take digital x-rays to find any concerns that are not visible to the naked eye, such as a cavity between two teeth or infection developing deep inside a tooth. Another very important component of a checkup is an oral cancer screening. This disease is highly treatable and curable when found early.

Similarly, other oral and dental health concerns are relatively easy to treat when found sooner rather than later. Some of the restorative treatments Dr. Taylor offers to repair your smile include:

  • Tooth-Colored Fillings
  • Dentures and Partials
  • All Porcelain Crown, Inlays and Onlays
  • Root Canals
  • CEREC one-visit crowns and other restorations
  • Bridges
  • Dental Implants

For those times when you want to enhance your smile, we have a number of cosmetic treatments. One of the most cost-effective is teeth whitening with Zoom! Whitening. In just one appointment, you can have a smile that is several shades brighter and whiter.

Have a chipped or slightly cracked tooth? Cosmetic bonding uses tooth-colored composite resin material to rebuild and reshape your tooth. If you have several teeth that are chipped, cracked, misshaped or slightly misaligned, then consider porcelain veneers. These coverings are adhesively bonded to your teeth, so you can present an aesthetically pleasing smile to family, friends and colleagues.

We proudly serve patients in Conroe, The Woodlands, Spring, Houston and surrounding communities. Call our office in The Woodlands, TX today to schedule an appointment for yourself or another member of your family.
