When preparing for a special occasion, we try to wear a beautiful outfit, amazing jewelry, and… a discolored tooth? Despite the clothes and jewelry worn, a smile can be distracting if the teeth are crooked, chipped or discolored. Repairing all of these issues can be expensive and time-consuming, but luckily, dental cosmetic bonding can help take care of all the issues.
What Is Cosmetic Bonding?
Using a tooth-colored resin, dental cosmetic bonding repairs issues and whitens the teeth. The bonding material can be made to match any shade of tooth, so whether you are looking just to repair issues or to also whiten your smile, bonding can help. The material is very malleable and can be used in a variety of ways, which is why it can also be used as a cosmetic alternative to more noticeable fillings. It can also be used to protect part of the tooth that has been exposed due to gum recession.
What Is the Procedure Like?
After a consultation to investigate the issues, your dentist can let you know if dental cosmetic bonding can help. The process is easy and can be applied in one session, which is why bonding is a popular alternative to the more invasive process of getting dental veneers. After a conditioning liquid is applied to the teeth, the bonding material is then applied. It is molded, hardened and then smoothed to bring out a natural-looking shine.
How Does Cosmetic Bonding Help Patients?
Bonding is incredibly versatile, inexpensive and the procedure is relatively simple. The results, however, can transform a smile. With proper dental care, your dental bonding can last for ten years.
