Cosmetic Bonding: The Gift You Give Yourself

December can be one of the busiest, most stressful times of the year, especially as we approach the holidays. If you have yet to carve out some time for yourself, now is the perfect time to give yourself the gift of a great smile. In just one visit to your cosmetic dentist, you can erase everything from stubborn stains and gaps to too-small teeth and minor crookedness.

An Affordable Alternative to Veneers

Cosmetic bonding confers many of the same benefits as porcelain veneers, but at a lower price point. Like veneers, the bonding procedure addresses such flaws as small teeth, gapped teeth, and minor chips. Another advantage of bonding over veneers is that the procedure can be finished with just one visit to our office. Veneers, on the other hand, require multiple visits to allow for impressions, placement, and any necessary adjustments.

Whiter Teeth, Even With Stubborn Stains

Some stains are so deeply set that they cannot be whitened by the desired number of shades. When this happens, most commonly with tetracycline stains or stains built up by tar from tobacco use, even the most powerful bleaching treatment may not be as effective. Bonding does not treat the enamel; it covers it, and in doing so it covers stains and discoloration.

A Versatile Dental Material

Composite resin, the same material we use to create tooth-colored fillings, is popular in part because it can be made to match nearly any shade of tooth enamel. This means it can take on a subtle shade that perfectly blends in with the surrounding teeth. Alternately, we can create a composite that is brighter than your natural tooth color.
