Our teeth go through a lot during our lifetime and, while resilient, various injuries can cause our teeth to chip or crack. When this happens, your smile can make you feel self-conscious. If your smile is hindered by chips, cracks, or gaps, our dental team at South Meadows Dental & Orthodontics can help. We use cosmetic bonding to address various concerns with your smile. Bonding is not only a great cosmetic option but also a good restorative option. Cosmetic bonding is a treatment that can boost your smile and confidence by replacing a chipped or broken tooth structure.
WHAT IS COSMETIC BONDING?
Dental bonding is a treatment that is used to help restore the beauty of your smile. By using a tooth-colored resin that is placed on the area and then bonded to the teeth, our dentists can completely restore your teeth and smile. Cosmetic bonding is a customizable procedure offered at South Meadows Dental & Orthodontics. This is a long-lasting solution to various teeth concerns. Patients are encouraged to keep a relationship with their dentist to make sure that their bonding is well cared-for.
HOW IS COSMETIC BONDING DONE?
Cosmetic bonding offers many advantages over similar methods. This treatment can be prepared and performed in just one office visit. This approach is a fairly simple one. There is often little preparation needed to undergo cosmetic bonding. Your dentist will use a shade guide to make sure that the resin used will match your natural teeth. Your dentist will prepare the surface of the tooth with a conditioning etch, which helps the bonding composite adhere to the tooth. The composite is applied to the tooth and smoothed out for the desired shape. Then, an ultraviolet light is used to harden the material. After this process, your dentist will mold the material to the desired shape and polish it to match the tooth. This treatment can be completed in a single visit and provides our patients with natural, stunning results.
REASONS FOR CHOOSING COSMETIC BONDING
Cosmetic bonding can address multiple concerns of the teeth. Our dental team consists of experts in cosmetic bonding treatments and know how to help our patients feel confident. The most common reasons patients opt for cosmetic bonding include:
- Repairing decayed teeth
- Repairing chipped teeth
- Closing gaps between teeth
- Improving discolored teeth
- Protecting the root of the tooth
The bonding process addresses these concerns and the contours of the teeth. Talk with your dentist at South Meadows Dental & Orthodontics to discuss your personal concerns and cosmetic bonding options.
