Do cosmetic dental imperfections make you want to hide your teeth? You can significantly improve their appearance using tooth bonding in Greensboro. Unlike many other popular cosmetic treatments, the treatment is minimally invasive because it does not permanently alter your teeth. After just one appointment, Dr. David M. Fisher can give you the radiant smile you have always wanted.
Also known as cosmetic or dental bonding, the elective procedure improves the color, size, shape, and proportion of a tooth using a composite resin material. It is made from fine glass and plastic particles, which makes it biocompatible. It is customized to match your enamel to blend in with your natural teeth.
The resin can be sculpted easily into any desired shape, allowing it to resolve a variety of issues. You can achieve the results you want in as little as one appointment.

Almost everyone is a candidate for cosmetic bonding, but you still need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Fisher to ensure it is right for you. He evaluates your concerns and discusses the results you want to achieve to create a customized treatment plan.
It takes about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth. If you are treating several teeth, he may recommend more than 1 appointment.

This allows the resin to bond securely to your tooth. After the resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape, a special dental light is used to harden it. Dr. Fisher checks your bite and polishes your tooth, so you can walk out of our office with a beautiful smile.
You can enjoy long-lasting results if you care for your smile properly each day. On average, cosmetic bonding lasts about 10 years before needing to be replaced. You can ensure it lasts for as long as possible by:
