Bonding is a versatile procedure that can correct cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. It can also fill in gaps by changing the shape of a tooth, making it appear wider, straighter, or longer to fill in gaps (for example, dental bonding on front teeth is a very common procedure). Because dental bonding costs less than veneers, fillings, and crowns, it is considered a cost-effective alternative if your teeth meet certain criteria. And the results are fabulous!
Wipe That Smirk Off Your Face
Have you been hiding behind a tight-lipped smile? Let Cosmetic Dentistry of Murfreesboro’s dental bonding wipe that smirk off your face and set your smile free!
Dr. Greg Nicholson uses a tooth-colored resin and bonds it to the existing tooth enamel. Dr. Nicholson’s dental bonding artistry is renowned in Murfreesboro . . . his technique is simply unmatched. For this reason, we encourage our patients to dream BIG, because he doesn’t just restore smiles . . . he transforms them.
Whether you’re needing one tooth to blend in with the rest, or you’ve been hiding your true smile behind a closed grin, Cosmetic Dentistry of Murfreesboro can take you from smirk to smile—usually in one office visit.
(Typically, bonding is not recommended if there is existing damage to the tooth structure, or if there is evidence of decay; those are issues that should be addressed before moving forward with any sort of cosmetic treatment.)
Bond with Us
Dental bonding is one of the least invasive cosmetic dentistry procedures. We’ll schedule your free consultation, where Dr. Nicholson will carefully examine the affected tooth, discuss various options, and make recommendations for repair. If you decide to move forward the dental bonding, we’ll schedule an appointment.
When you arrive for your dental bonding appointment, we help you relax and feel safe. Whether you need a laugh, a chair adjustment, or additional assistance, your comfort is our priority—please let us know if there is something specific we can do.
Depending on the amount of damage and its location, anesthesia may not be required. Once a color match has been determined, Dr. Nicholson will prepare the tooth’s service and apply a conditioner that aids in the resin’s proper curing. The dental bonding resin is then applied, shaped, and smoothed carefully.
He’ll harden the resin with a special light, then perfect the repaired tooth with more trimming and shaping before finally polishing it to match the rest of your teeth.
Known as the “Gentle Giant” dentist in Murfreesboro, Dr. Nicholson takes great care to make dental bonding procedures as pain-free as possible—so expect him to take a few extra minutes to address any concerns you may have, and walk you through each step of the dental bonding process. And because patient education is one of the most valuable ways we equip our patients, he will review things to avoid or look for in order to maximize your dental bonding’s lifespan.
As a full-service dental design studio, Cosmetic Dentistry of Murfreesboro also offers the following cosmetic and restorative dentistry services:
Dr. Nicholson applies the same expertise and artistry when additional repairs are needed in the best interest of the patient’s health, like:
- Tooth-colored fillings: Sometimes referred to as “composite” or “white” fillings, these are safe and durable when a cavity needs to be filled.
- Dentures: Each and every set is custom made for maximum comfort, whether you select permanent implants or traditional, removable dentures. He also repairs broken or loose-fitting dentures. Most denture repairs are ready same-day.
- Root canals: Sometimes referred to as “endodontics,” root canals can save a tooth even when its soft interior (called the “pulp chamber”) becomes infected. Once we clean out what’s bothering your tooth, it will continue to function without the pain and sensitivity you were likely experiencing before the procedure.
- Emergency care: Yes, call us. Yes, we will see you. Priority is given to regular patients.
