Cosmetic Dental Bonding Baton Rouge

Cosmetic Dental Bonding Baton Rouge If you are considering dentistry treatment to enhance the appearance of your smile, cosmetic bonding may be a terrific place to start. Dr. Kurt LeJeune offers this fast, easy, economical option to patients in the Baton Rouge area.

When bonding is used

Bonding material is a composite resin – a special type of plastic formulated with finely powdered glass for enamel-like luster. It can be used cosmetically to:
  • Mask chips and fractures, or a corner knocked off due to trauma.
  • Disguise pitting or other enamel flaws.
  • Cover stubborn discoloration, staining, or white spots caused by demineralization.
  • Change the shape of teeth or make them look longer.
  • Close gaps between teeth.
  • Repair tooth decay, as an esthetic alternative to silver-colored amalgam.

Easy procedure

Using a shade guide, you and Dr. LeJeune select the composite resin color for your bonding. Teeth are treated with an etching solution to roughen enamel. Then a conditioning liquid is brushed on to improve adherence. The putty-like resin is applied; molded and smoothed into proper shape. The bonding is hardened with laser or ultraviolet light. Dr. LeJeune trims and makes final adjustments, then polishes the material to a sheen.

Benefits of bonding

  • Single visit.
  • Quick procedure. Bonding for a single tooth usually takes less than an hour.
  • Often no anesthetic is needed.
  • Conservative – minimal impact to healthy tooth structure.
  • Cost effective.
  • Strong and durable.
  • No special care – only regular good oral hygiene is needed.
Cosmetic bonding is an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers. Damaged teeth can be repaired immediately, or the smile dramatically transformed in one appointment. Cosmetic bonding may be used alone, or as part of a comprehensive smile makeover strategy.
