A confident smile can help you achieve many goals, including a healthier lifestyle. One cosmetic treatment that can deliver impressive results is dental bonding.
During this minimally invasive procedure, we will apply putty-like resin directly to your teeth and carefully shape it to correct dental imperfections. Here are five reasons to consider tooth bonding as your next cosmetic dental treatment:
Compared to other cosmetic treatments like veneers, tooth bonding is more cost-effective. This is because it typically requires a visit to the dentist’s office like The Pampered Tooth and takes a few minutes to an hour per treated tooth.
It can also be used for minor smile transformations like fixing chips, gaps, cracks, and discoloration. It is also a good treatment for gummy smiles as it can help them appear more even and balanced.
Dental bonding is less durable than other treatments like veneers and may chip or stain over time despite its affordability. It is recommended to avoid habits like biting hard foods, chewing on ice, and other activities that can damage the composite resin material to protect your investment. Regular cleanings and visits to the dentist are also important to ensure that your bonded teeth remain in good condition.
Bonding is an ideal option for repairing cracks & chips, improving discoloration & reshaping teeth. It uses a tooth-colored composite resin that blends in with your natural tooth color, making it a perfect choice for covering minor dental damage.
Unlike porcelain veneers, dental bonding is a minimally invasive treatment & doesn’t require the removal of any tooth material. This makes it a better option for patients with anxiety about visiting the dentist.
Bonding can also be used to cover root exposure, which is often caused by aggressive brushing or prior drug use. The composite resin can be colored to match the shade of your natural tooth, but it is not immune to staining & will need regular touch-ups. Avoid bad habits like biting your fingernails or chewing on ice to ensure your bonded teeth last.
Dental bonding is one of the fastest cosmetic dental treatments available. It’s also relatively conservative compared to other restoration options like veneers and crowns. Your dentist only removes the smallest amount of enamel when applying the composite resin, and she then molds it by hand to fit your teeth and enhance their appearance. The resin is then hardened and cured with a special light before being polished for a smooth finish.
This treatment can correct various smile imperfections, including chipped teeth, discolored teeth that don’t respond to professional whitening or gaps between teeth. It can even lengthen or reshape teeth to improve your gummy smile or make them appear more even and proportional. But remember, the composite resin is not as strong as your natural teeth and will not last as long.
Tooth bonding uses composite resin to “mask” chipped, misshapen, or discolored teeth and create a one-of-a-kind smile. This is a conservative cosmetic dentistry procedure, unlike veneers or crowns, that doesn’t require the removal of enamel to achieve results.
The process is minimally invasive and does not require anesthesia. We start by selecting a color of composite resin that matches your natural tooth’s shade. Then, we roughen the tooth’s surface and apply a conditioning liquid to ensure adherence.
The putty-like material is then molded and sculpted to achieve the desired result. Once the resin is hardened, we finish with a polish and trim. Proper care of your bonded teeth includes daily brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups. You should also limit the consumption of very sticky, hard, or staining foods and drinks to protect your new smile.
Cosmetic bonding is a relatively affordable treatment that can fix common imperfections like chips, cracks, discolorations and gaps. It is also a great alternative to more expensive treatments such as veneers, crowns and teeth whitening.
After applying a conditioning liquid to your existing tooth, the dentist uses a soft and putty-like resin that is shaped to achieve your desired results. The shade of the polish is then carefully matched to your surrounding teeth to ensure a seamless effect.
Unlike other cosmetic dental procedures, tooth bonding is completed in just one visit and can last several years. However, since it isn’t as resistant to staining as veneers are, you may need to touch up the material over time.
