Not everyone is born with a perfect set of teeth. Sometimes, one or more teeth might be shaped a little differently, or a tooth might be just a little smaller than the ones around it. It also tends for people to go their entire lives without experiencing some sort of dental issue that needs fixing. You might get a small chip or crack. The teeth might discolor over time. You do not need to live with minor dental defects. Wanserski Dental Center for Complex Dentistry can fix them with dental bonding.
A Simple Procedure with Incredible Results
Dental bonding is one of the fastest, simplest cosmetic procedures available. It involves the use of composite resin to improve the aesthetics of teeth that have minor dental flaws, whether they are imperfections that are present naturally or imperfections that were caused by a specific issue. Bonding is incredibly versatile. The composite resin material is soft and moldable at first, which allows us to shape it to meet several different needs.
The procedure is very easy. Before placing the bonding, we first need to rough up the surface of the tooth. This is done using an acid etch. The rough texture helps to enhance the bond between the composite resin and your tooth enamel. We then apply the composite resin and shape it so that it enhances the visual appearance of the affected teeth. Finally, ultraviolet light is used to dry the composite resin. Once dried, your smile is instantly improved. The whole process can typically be completed in less than an hour.
Why Should I Get Dental Bonding?
Bonding is one of the easiest cosmetic procedures available, but it is also incredibly effective. Composite resin is available in several shades so that we can choose a shade that most closely matches the actual color of your real teeth. The composite resin can fix many different types of issues, making it an incredibly versatile treatment. Dental bonding is also one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments available.
Are There Any Disadvantages to Dental Bonding?
One of the drawbacks to dental bonding is that composite resin is not as strong as your natural teeth. If you tend to bite your nails or use your teeth as tools, you may damage the bonding. The composite resin material can stain, particularly when exposed to things such as coffee or tobacco products, and it cannot Before. Bonding may typically only last a few years before it needs to be repaired or replaced. It is not as strong or as long-lasting as other restorative treatments.
What if My Teeth Cannot Be Fixed with Bonding?
If your teeth cannot be fixed with dental bonding, there are still other cosmetic solutions that can help to improve the aesthetics of your teeth and your smile. One such option is veneers. Like dental bonding, veneers are purely cosmetic. For more significant damage, we may recommend crowns. Ceramic crowns can help to protect your oral health while also improving your smile.
