The team at Premier Dental understands that even the smallest cracks and smile imperfections can leave you unhappy with your appearance. While there is a multitude of ways you can treat these types of cosmetic dental flaws, it’s natural to want something that is quick, painless, and easily affordable. After all, most dental procedures are not cheap, and insurance isn’t likely to cover cosmetic treatment. So, what can you do? Dr. Adam Jones and Dr. Giuliana Diaz Jones are pleased to offer dental tooth bonding as a way to cover your imperfections and restore your smile. To find out more about it or to learn if you are a qualified candidate, call us to schedule an appointment today.
Cosmetic dental bonding is a quick and easy procedure that uses composite resin to hide imperfections in your smile. The resin is matched to your natural tooth color, so it blends in beautifully without shining a spotlight on your teeth. Not to mention, this material is biocompatible and non-toxic, making it much safer to use and more environmentally friendly.
When our team evaluates your smile, we will be looking for various flaws that we believe will be easy to cover with the use of composite resin. Some flaws such as large gaps or severely crooked teeth may require the use of traditional orthodontics to achieve desired results, but in most cases, cosmetic dental bonding can easily hide many of the following problems:
In order to receive cosmetic dental bonding, it will be necessary to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists. This will allow you to discuss your goals as well as have your mouth examined to determine if you are a qualified candidate for the treatment. If so, our team will begin by roughening the teeth you wish to have covered. This will allow the resin to bond properly to the tooth. Don’t worry, this part of the process will not hurt.
Next, we will take the resin that we’ve matched to your natural tooth color and place it directly onto your tooth enamel. Your dentist will then begin to shape and sculpt the resin so that it lays flat against the tooth and properly covers the imperfection. A special curating light is used to harden the resin into place.
Finally, we will give your teeth a final polish to provide a smooth, clean finish.
With proper care and maintenance, you can expect your cosmetic dental bonding to last several years, but it is imperative that you maintain good oral hygiene. Immediately following your treatment, you will need to simply continue brushing, flossing, and rinsing as you normally do. There is no downtime after receiving cosmetic dental bonding, making it a great cosmetic solution.
