Dr. Marchese Explains How Dental Bonding Can Help Your Smile
July 8, 2016
Dental bonding has quickly become one of the most preferred cosmetic procedures to enhance a smile’s appearance. When compared to other cosmetic procedures, dental bonding is the affordable option for high-quality results. Using a composite resin material, a number of cosmetic flaws can be resolved using the simple and noninvasive procedure. Not matter if you have chipped teeth or severe tooth discoloration, cosmetic dental bonding will help. As your Lisle dentist, we use dental bonding for a diversity of purposes.
What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?
Cosmetic dental bonding involves a simple procedure that produces drastic results. Using a composite resin material that is applied to the teeth, you will fix and hide an array of cosmetic flaws. After undergoing a consultation with your Lisle dentist, a customized treatment plan is created. As part of the treatment plan, your dentist will create the resin to match the existing color or your enamel. This will ensure the repairs made blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth for a natural-looking smile.
To begin the process, a local anesthesia may be used to minimize any discomfort. Then, the surface of the tooth is lightly etched to allow for a secure bond between the bonding material and the tooth. After the tooth is etched, a conditioning liquid is applied to the tooth. Your tooth will then be prepared using the resin. The resin will be molded and smoothed into the proper shape. An ultraviolet light or laser is used to quickly harden the material. Finally, the last adjustments to the resin are made to ensure function and appearance.
Dental bonding is durable and offers a long-term solution to improve your smile. You will care for your teeth with regular brushing and flossing, while also visiting your dentist twice a year for regular checkups. At each appointment, we will check the teeth to ensure the bonds are still function properly. Should an area need repaired, we will quickly and easily restore the function of the bond.
How Can Cosmetic Bonding Help Me?
In addition to being cost-effective, dental bonding is versatile. Essentially, just about any tooth that needs to be reshaped, such as those with chips, cracks, or misshaped teeth, can get a more attractive appearance. Not to mention, teeth that are severely stained or discolored that don’t respond to whitening treatments can be given a whiter appearance. In some cases, bonding can also be used to make your smile appear straighter by filling in small gaps. Those who have gummy smiles often choose dental bonding to make the teeth appear longer and more proportionate. Overall, dental bonding is a simple way to drastically transform your smile.
