If you feel self-conscious about minor cosmetic flaws like dental chips, cracks, or stains, Dr. Michael D. Haight offers dental bonding to enhance the appearance of your smile. Using composite resin material, we can alter the shape, size, and shade of teeth to complement your unique facial features. To provide high-quality results to our Albuquerque, NM, patients, we can incorporate our advanced digital imaging systems and dental cone beam CT (computed tomography) scanner to format a precise and effective treatment plan.
Dental bonding can effectively address dental chips and cracks, as well as broken teeth to help you achieve a more uniform smile.
Dental bonding can be used to restore teeth weakened by chips or cracks, or brighten teeth dulled by dental staining. During treatment, we can carefully sculpt a composite resin material over the tooth surface to address a variety of concerns, including:
At Parkway Dental, we can tint the composite resin material to match the natural shade of your smile.
Using composite resin material, we can alter the shape, size, and shade of teeth to complement your unique facial features.
If you wish to address minor cosmetic imperfections, you may be a candidate for dental bonding. As with any cosmetic dental procedure, you must be in good health before beginning treatment. If you have more pressing dental issues, such as extensive tooth decay or periodontal disease, we must first provide effective restorative treatment. Additionally, if you smoke, we recommend stopping before treatment, as tobacco causes tooth discoloration. As a result, current smokers may not achieve optimal results with dental bonding.
To determine the extent of bonding necessary, we can take advanced images of your smile. These scans enable our team to assess your teeth, gums, and jawbone for a more comprehensive diagnosis. At Parkway Dental, we are committed to your safety and are proud to incorporate the latest technology into treatment. Our digital x-ray system and dental cone beam CT scanner provide high-quality radiographs. For your benefit, modern digital imaging units emit 90 percent less radiation than conventional x-ray machines. Digital imaging also allows Dr. Haight and Dr. Case to manipulate the images, viewing them from multiple perspectives. Using modern technology, we can provide our patients with accurate and efficient treatment.
Whether you wish to improve the function or appearance of your smile, dental bonding may be the solution for you.
