A winning smile can instill confidence like few other things in life can. If you feel self-conscious because of imperfections in your teeth, cosmetic dentistry can help. Cosmetic teeth bonding, in particular, offers dramatic results in very little time. It is also one of the most affordable ways to correct the concerns you have about your smile. No amount of makeup or clothes can take the place of a naturally beautiful smile. Thankfully dental bonding can help you achieve one!
The Basics of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is an in-office procedure that can often be completed within an hour during a single office visit. That is because, unlike other cosmetic procedures, which require porcelain restorations to be crafted for you by a ceramicist, dental bonding relies on a composite resin and the dentist’s own skills to carefully sculpt your teeth.
The dentist will first gently prepare your teeth, then apply the resin material, which will be closely matched to the natural shade of your teeth. He or she will then use the material to cover any imperfections, and to help unify the size and shape of your teeth. When the resin has created your ideal teeth, it will be hardened and polished, creating a natural-looking sheen. When completed, dental bonding creates a lifelike smile, just one drastically improved.
Could It Be Right for You?
Much like porcelain veneers, dental bonding can address a number of cosmetic concerns. Here is what you need to know about dental bonding.
- It is one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments
- It can address chips, cracks, and stains on your teeth, as well as minor gaps between your teeth
- You will need to take great care of your new smile, and since dental bonding is not as strong or stain-resistant as the porcelain used in veneers, you should avoid staining foods and beverages, as well as cigarettes
