Dental bonding is considered to be a less-invasive, highly affordable, and easy-to-complete form of cosmetic dentistry. Unlike veneers and metal-free dental restorations, this process requires no altering of your natural teeth but instead, easily conceals all types of minor imperfections, allowing you to walk away with an enhanced smile that can last years. If this sounds like something you might be interested in considering, call our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Holinbeck today.
Whether it is a chip, crack, stain, or miniature gap between your teeth, dental bonding can be a viable solution. Consisting of composite resin, which is the same material used for tooth-colored fillings, a cosmetic dentist will color-match it to your tooth enamel shade so that it blends it and prevents others from noticing.
It is ideal for anyone who wants to quickly boost their appearance without undergoing complex treatment that might take weeks or months to complete.
Most patients who want to hide a few minor tooth flaws are likely to be considered good candidates for dental bonding; however, a thorough consultation is required. Dr. Holinbeck or another member of our Bionica Dental Wellness team will need to inspect your mouth to determine if any existing issues need to be treated first. For example, if you have signs of gum disease, it’s important that periodontal therapy be provided before moving forward with any kind of cosmetic treatment.
If you are unhappy with your smile because of any of the following problems that might exist, and your oral and overall health appears to be in good shape, you can expect to be cleared for dental bonding:
Dental bonding is a less invasive process than receiving veneers or metal-free restorations. In just one appointment, a member of our team will transform your appearance.
The first step is to use a shade guide to match the composite resin to the desired shade of enamel. Once completed, your cosmetic dentist will apply it to the surface of your tooth. Shaping and sculpting it so that the resin lays flat and adequately covers the imperfection, a curing light is then used to harden the resin into place.
After a final polish, our team will reveal your smile, allowing you to walk away feeling more confident than before.
