At the practice of Dr. Kenneth Barney of Hedgesville, WV, patients in and around the community can work with our team to enhance their smile in a variety of ways. With cosmetic dentistry, almost anything is possible! When patients are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth or gums, they can turn to our staff to discuss their options. Dr. Kenneth Barney finds that one of the most popular and affordable ways of addressing imperfections in the smile is with the use of composite dental bonding.
Understanding dental bonding
Dental bonding is a special material that looks like clay. The dentist can prepare the tooth, place the material onto it, and then shape it in place. With a special light, the material is hardened, and then the dentist completes the process by filing and polishing the material so it blends in beautifully with the smile. Dr. Kenneth Barney finds that dental bonding can be a wonderful solution for patients with concerns such as:
• Gaps between the teeth
• Misaligned teeth
• Permanently stained teeth
• Unusually shaped teeth
• Teeth that are chipped or cracked
Dental bonding can be done in a single appointment, allowing patient to go about their day with little interruption but a more beautiful smile! Our team works hard to ensure the bonding material matches the patient’s natural tooth color for seamless integration into the smile. Our staff finds that the use of dental bonding is affordable for many of our patients and can last many years before it needs to be replaced. Dental bonding can be stained over time, so we monitor one’s dental health to ensure the bonding lasts as long as possible. Some patients may even consider a further investment into their smile with the use of porcelain veneers, a wonderful alternative to dental bonding.
