Are you bothered by your gapped smile? You may not have to wear braces to fix it! At the office of Dr. Mitzi Morris, we are excited to discuss an effective and non-invasive cosmetic dental solution to tooth gaps: dental bonding. If you have unsightly spaces between your teeth, also known as diastema, read on to discover how dental bonding can help bridge that gap and transform your smile.

Understanding Diastema: Gaps Between Teeth

Diastema is a common dental concern where there are noticeable spaces or gaps between two or more teeth. While some people embrace this unique characteristic, others may feel self-conscious about their smile due to the gaps. Diastema can be caused by various factors, including genetics, missing teeth, tooth size discrepancies, or certain oral habits.

The Beauty of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a versatile and popular cosmetic dental procedure used to address various dental issues, including gaps between teeth. It involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material to the teeth, which is then shaped and bonded in place to enhance the appearance of the smile.

The Dental Bonding Process

When visiting our Roswell clinic for dental bonding, you can expect the following steps:

  • Consultation: The journey begins with a consultation with Dr. Morris. During this visit, your dentist will assess your oral health, discuss your cosmetic goals, and determine if dental bonding is the right solution for you.
  • Color Matching: We will carefully choose a composite resin shade that matches the natural color of your teeth, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking result.
  • Tooth Preparation: Minimal preparation is required for dental bonding. In most cases, anesthesia is not necessary unless the bonding is used to fill cavities or address other dental issues.
  • Bonding Application: The composite resin material is applied to the teeth, and Dr. Morris will skillfully mold and sculpt it to close the gaps and create a more harmonious smile.
  • Curing: A special light is used to harden the composite resin, bonding it securely to the teeth.
  • Polishing: Finally, the bonded area is polished to match the sheen of your natural teeth, leaving you with a beautifully enhanced smile.

Advantages of Dental Bonding for Diastema

The benefits of bonding are noteworthy and include the following:

  • Improved Aesthetics: Dental bonding effectively closes the gaps between teeth, instantly transforming your smile and boosting your confidence.
  • Non-Invasive: Unlike some cosmetic dental procedures that require extensive tooth reduction, dental bonding is minimally invasive, preserving the natural tooth structure.
  • Time-Efficient: Dental bonding is typically completed in one visit, allowing you to achieve your desired results without lengthy treatment times.
  • Cost-Effective: Compared to other cosmetic dental treatments, dental bonding is a more budget-friendly option for improving your smile.
  • Reversible: If desired, dental bonding can be reversed or replaced with alternative treatments in the future.

Caring for Bonded Teeth

Maintaining your newly bonded smile is simple. Practice good oral hygiene by brushing, flossing, and visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups. Avoid biting hard objects like ice or using your teeth as tools to prolong the life of the bonding.

Based on 44 reviews

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

    Cathy Q
  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

    Christopher P
  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

    David G
  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
