Dentist describes dental bonding for Abbeville area patients

Restoring teeth can be done in a myriad of ways. Dr. Christopher T. Griffin, near Abbeville, offers new and existing patients a wide selection of dental treatments for optimum results. One method used to assist patients in restoring their natural teeth is dental bonding.

Dental bonding is a composite material used to reshape natural teeth, fill in spaces between them, and to be used as a filling to address areas of tooth decay. This material is safe, and it is tooth-colored, allowing it to blend in seamlessly with the existing natural teeth. It is applied to the teeth, shaped, hardened with a special light, and polished. When done by a professional such as Dr. Christopher T. Griffin, dental bonding can be difficult to discern from the natural tooth structure.

Dental bonding is a wonderful alternative to other restorative services including veneers. Porcelain veneers are commonly placed over the front of natural teeth to disguise imperfections including breakage and permanent staining. However, bonding can perform the same task in a faster, more conservative manner. Dental bonding can be done in one appointment, while veneers must be fabricated through an outside ceramist and they can take several weeks to complete in full from start to finish. Many patients choose dental bonding as it can be an effective method of improving aesthetics without the need for tooth alteration.

Patients in and around the Abbeville area are encouraged to contact Dr. Christopher T. Griffin to learn about the many ways in which he can assist in restoring the smile for cosmetics and efficiency. We work with patients to determine the best solutions for their dental concerns and find a way to address their problems to fit their budget and their lifestyle.

    I've gone to at least 3 different dentists over the past few years, consistently had dental problems and had to get the same treatment done over and over again. Since I started going to Dr. Griffin, my dental problems are all solved for good. Here is a dentist with so much attention to detail and you can tell he truly loves what he does and sincerely cares about his patients. ~ Jenny
