Dental bonding may be the answer to your wish. Bonding is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure where tooth colored resin is adhered to the natural tooth filling in any spaces caused by chipping, breakage or cavities. Dental bonding is also used on severely discolored teeth to make them look better and more natural.
Bonding can be used for a variety of applications to enhance the appearance of teeth. Small spaces between teeth can be closed with bonding. If you have a tooth that is misshapen, it can be reshaped to look better with bonding. This process is also used to provide length to shorter teeth and it is used in place of silver fillings in some instances. Receding gums can expose too much of the tooth root and bonding can protect the root.
Bonding does not require the tooth preparation that is necessary for placement of crowns and porcelain veneers. The bonding process can usually be done in a short period of time with just one visit. It is also a very economical way to get beautiful results quickly. The final result looks and feels just like your natural teeth. Bonding is convenient because of the small amount of time required to complete the process. For many of the cosmetic purposes of dental bonding anesthesia is seldom required, though it is used when filling a cavity. Also, less healthy tooth structure is lost in the bonding process than with other procedures.
Dental bonding is an inexpensive means of attaining a great smile when you have minor flaws that need to be corrected. Contact Smile Avenue Family Dentistry today to set up a consultation appointment about dental bonding. We are happy to sit down with you and discuss your cosmetic dental options.
