Our dentist, Dr. Kathy Daroee, and the team at Kathy Cosmetic Dentistry adheres to a philosophy of Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Dentistry. Not every tooth with a problem needs to be extracted or requires extensive drilling or dental work. In fact, your smile can sometimes benefit from a minimum amount of cosmetic treatment. Such is the case with dental bonding.
Dental bonding is a simple and inexpensive way to correct minor cosmetic problems with your smile. Those problems may include teeth that are improperly sized, shaped or spaced. Dental bonding can be used to cover chips or cracks, or even improve the color of one or more of your teeth.
The process takes only one visit to our office and there is usually little if any preparation of the tooth required. Dr. Daroee will mix a composite putty that has been shaded to blend in with your tooth or to enhance its appearance. The resin is molded around your tooth and when it has been hardened, Dr. Daroee will trim and polish it to create your new smile.
If you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment for dental bonding in Woodland Hills, California, we invite you to call 818-347-1550 and speak with a member of our team.
