Sacramento dentists describe bonding, an alternative treatment for misaligned teethPosted by Kosta J. Adams, DDS, MAGD, FICOI / Kristen J. Adams - Dentist Sacramento
Dental bonding, explainedThe material is applied and shaped to natural structure to correct everything from chips and stubborn discoloration to poor positions. “Bonding” gets its name from the material being bonded to the tooth’s surface.
Bonding for misalignmentAfter your teeth are examined and goals are discussed, the dentists may recommend this common approach to close gaps or for modest spacing issues. Bonding is not an orthodontic treatment. It is not a substitute for braces or other orthodontic appliances should you have bite-related problems or severe spacing issues. The doctors use their finesse and experience to manipulate the putty-like bonding material, so the appearance of straight, even teeth is achieved.
Know your alternativesYou may benefit from Invisalign. A clear, removable alternative to fixed metal braces, Invisalign treats a range of orthodontic problems including more minor crowding as well as more extensive functional problems with how the upper and lower teeth come together, such as an overbite or underbite.
If you can benefit from bonding for your spacing issues, you’ll probably be able to benefit from porcelain veneers. These thin layers of porcelain are prepared and placed in a couple of appointments. While they are generally costlier than bonding, veneers are known to be particularly lifelike. They are resistant to stains and are durable. A small amount of natural enamel is removed to accommodate the veneer, which makes it an irreversible procedure.
Bonding may be prepared and shaped in a single visit, and with no alteration of tooth enamel. Call (916) 999-1302 to schedule an exam and discover your best options.

Woke up with a horribly infected tooth on Friday morning. I had not established a relationship with a dentist since moving to Sacramento. Googled emergency dentists and was incredibly fortunate to find Dr. Adams listing. Called them on a Friday afternoon as a new patient and was seen within an hour!!! Two teeth had to be pulled. Dr Adams and Dr Kristen were awesome. I didn't feel a thing....teeth were out quickly and painlessly. Everyone there is incredibly sweet and caring. Everything is spotless and clean - could not have asked for a better experience. I have found my forever Dentist.

They have cared for my teeth for 20+ years. Always warm and very trustworthy. I'd like to share my most recent visit, since it reflects the quality of care they have always provided. So my front tooth had a chipped bottom and my back tooth had a broken filling. First off, he fixed the broken filling without a problem. Next, Dr. Adams walked me through the options we had for the chipped tooth. I asked various questions to address my concerns. His explanations were comforting. For both my teeth issues, he gave me a full idea of what to expect. In the end, both teeth were cared for and function just fine now. No more worrying! I feel comfortable trusting him with caring for my teeth.

Like always had a great experience with Dr Adams and Dr Adams. Had two fillings done and was in and out in just over an hour, I liked how they took the time to explain the whole procedure to me and answered all my questions about my teeth. I also enjoyed their good background music. The staff was very friendly and helpful in answering all my billing questions and setting up my next appointment. See you guys next time!!
