Dental bonding has quickly risen in popularity as an easy and effective form of cosmetic dentistry to alter the appearance of the teeth. Often used as an alternative to veneers, dental bonding allows you to fix chipped and cracked teeth, while also closing small gaps between the teeth. In some cases, dental bonding is also used as an alternative to traditional silver fillings as the material used is tooth-colored for a natural-looking repair. The versatile uses for the bonding material make it an ideal solution for those who have minor tooth flaws or for those on a budget. However, dental bonding in Bowling Green may not be right for everyone. As your Bowling Green dentist, we have everything you need to know about dental bonding.

This year, the Oral Cancer Foundation estimates that more than 48,000 people in the United States will be diagnosed with oral or pharyngeal (throat) cancer. Oral cancer will be to blame for more than 9,500 deaths, and the death rate for this cancer is greater than that for cervical cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and endocrine system cancers such as thyroid cancer. Unfortunately, oral cancer is often fatal not because it is hard to diagnose, but because it is diagnosed too late. That’s why Dr. Utz and his staff make a point of conducting an oral cancer screening for Bowling Green patients at each one of their regularly scheduled checkups.
