  • “ I have had the best experience with Dr. Domingue and his staff! He's kind, professional, and is extremely involved with every aspect of the patient care. His staff is one of the friendliest I have ever met. They don't only work in your mouth, they form real professional relationships. Dr. Domingue recently told me he was going to work with my time because, "you are way busier than I am". What a humble statement! I was so impressed when he recently shared that he was going on a mission trip to serve in Mexico. I think he is a gift to the lafayette community, and everyone needs to know.”

What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental Bonding Lafayette LA

If you have damaged teeth or teeth that don’t look their best, you may have considered cosmetic dentistry in Lafayette, LA. But you also may have been turned off by the expense or the thought that cosmetic dentistry is frivolous or something that only vain people do.

Nothing could be further from the truth!

Today, cosmetic dentistry is quick, simple, and often quite affordable, especially when you are a good candidate for a treatment like dental bonding. Bonding allows us to make a number of functional and esthetic repairs to teeth, often in a single appointment. It’s also one of the least costly cosmetic options available.

Simply put, you deserve to have a smile you feel great about, and dental bonding can help get you there.

Dental Bonding – The Basics

1. Dental bonding uses the same cosmetic resin material that is used to fill cavities. This versatile material can be shaded to perfectly match the color of your natural enamel, and once it is placed, it will be virtually impossible to tell which part of your tooth is bonded and which part is your natural structure.

2. As is implied by the name, the bonding material bonds to the structure of your teeth, which can strengthen and support your tooth. Other cosmetic procedures require shaping of the tooth and removal of natural structure. Other than light etching to help the bonding adhere, very little tooth prep is required for bonding.

3. We place the bonding and shape it right here in the office. We don’t have to send photos and impressions to a lab and wait for a restoration to come back. The bonding is applied directly to your tooth and cured using a special light. Your dentist then shapes it and polishes it to perfection. This can usually be completed in a single visit.

What Is Bonding Used For?

Bonding can fix most of the same issues as a dental veneer. We can:

  • Fill in a chip
  • Close a crack
  • Widen a narrow tooth to close a gap
  • Extend short or worn teeth to improve your bite
  • Fix minor misalignments
  • Conceal areas of discoloration

If you are concerned about the appearance of your teeth, call our Lafayette dental office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Smith or Dr. Domingue. We’ll discuss your options and see if dental bonding is a good choice for you.
