Cosmetic dentistry can quickly and effortlessly improve your smile. There are multiple options to restore teeth to get that perfect smile you’ve always dreamed of. Each cosmetic dental restoration has specific dental requirements that need to be taken into consideration depending on the individual’s teeth and facial features.
Improve your smile and your self-confidence in a comfortable and relaxed environment with dental bonding. Affordable tooth bonding is performed by your dentist and can help you keep a bright and beautiful smile that is sure to last for an extended period.
The Simplicity of Dental Bonding
Bonding is the use of a composite resin, typically a plastic, to fix a decayed or fractured tooth. Bonding is a tooth-colored material that can be used to repair chipped or discolored teeth while also helping them to appear more attractive and visually appealing. This cosmetic dental procedure can also be used to close gaps between teeth or to reshape or lengthen teeth. It can also be used to protect a small portion of an exposed tooth root due to gum recession.
Bonding is the best alternative to amalgam fillings and only requires a single visit to complete the treatment. The composite resin is a material that will bond to your tooth years to come and dental bonding is one of the most accessible and most affordable cosmetic dental procedures with additional advantages including:
No Preparation. Because the treatment is performed in the comfort of your dental office, it does not require any preparation or lab work.
One Visit. Treatment can be completed during a single visit to your dentist’s office and does not require dental anesthetic.
Affordable. When compared with customized tooth procedures and orthodontics, dental bonding to correct minor imperfections is an affordable cosmetic dental treatment.
Non-Invasive. Only a small amount of enamel from your tooth will need to be removed to apply dental bonding.
Improved Oral Health. Composite resin is a useful material that can treat cavities and several other types of tooth issues. It can be used to reinforce the walls of your tooth and stop decay from spreading.
Ways Dental Bonding Can Transform Your Smile
Cosmetic dental bonding is a simple and common practice to help restore teeth with the use of tooth-colored resin. Bonding can be done in the following cases:
- To close minor gaps between the front teeth
- Repair fractured teeth
- Restore chipped edges on the teeth
- Change the shape of a tooth
- Lengthen a single or multiple teeth
- Improve discolored or stained teeth
Dental Bonding Maintenance
Composite quality is very high with dental bonding treatments, but over time composite does wear down and it may even chip away slightly based on your oral habits, such as teeth grinding or biting on hard objects like ice cubes. Composite can also discolor and become stained over time. To minimize staining, we always recommend reducing harmful habits that stain teeth such as drinking coffee or other dark-colored liquids and quitting smoking. Brushing your teeth twice and day and visiting your dental hygienist for professional dental cleanings every six months will help to keep your teeth bright and in excellent condition.
If you are in search of a more permanent solution, you may consider porcelain veneers, which are ceramic or porcelain restorations that cover the front of the tooth.
