Whether you’re unhappy with the way that your smile looks or you need to repair a broken, chipped, or cracked tooth, dental bonding can help you achieve a long-lasting, functional, and beautiful smile. If you’re looking for dental bonding in Austin, Texas, you’ve come to the right place; Dr. Carmona is one of Austin’s leading prosthodontists.

What is dental bonding?

Dental Bonding is a process that involves using a tooth-colored resin to change the color, shape, size, or structural integrity of a tooth. This treatment is often used as a more cost-effective alternative to veneers or as a cosmetic alternative to traditional fillings. The bonding material that Dr. Carmona uses is a composite resin that he can color and shape into exactly what you need.

What is dental bonding used for?

  • Decay
  • Repair chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Gaps in teeth
  • Change the shape, size, or color of teeth
  • Protect the roots of your teeth if your gums have receded

Dental bonding is a great alternative to traditional amalgam fillings, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening.


Why is it important to determine the cause of discoloration?

Not all discoloration is the same, meaning that it can’t be treated the same—types of staining and discoloration are distinctly different and require different types of intervention.

For instance, yellowing caused by tobacco use is particularly difficult to remove because the yellowing can be very deeply rooted within the tooth structure. Some stains, however, may just require mild bleaching with an abrasive treatment to remove the surface stains. Dr. Carmona will talk to you about the reasons your teeth may be discolored in order to determine the appropriate treatment.

What types of teeth whitening are available?

At Austin Prosthodontics, Dr. Carmona provides high-quality, hands-on care that is individualized for each patient. As a result, we offer a few different types of whitening to help each of our patients get the appropriate care on their schedule.

  • In-office whitening: In-office procedures produce the best results that last the longest. Dr. Carmona will work with you to determine the perfect shade of white for you and closely monitor the process to achieve your desired results.
  • At-home kits: Professional at-home kits offer you the convenience of doing the treatment at home and on your own schedule with the benefit of professional results. Ask Dr. Carmona if our at-home whitening kits are right for you.
