Are you embarrassed by your smile? If discoloration, unsightly dental chips, and gaps between your teeth have got you down, Dr. White may consider cosmetic dental bonding as a possible method to restore form and function to your smile.
Cosmetic bonding material is a sophisticated resin that your Broomall cosmetic dentist can use to improve your teeth. Made to mimic your teeth’s natural color and opacity, cosmetic bonding material is the same composite resin that is used to create tooth-colored fillings. Modern advances in cosmetic bonding have made the material more durable than ever before.
Composite resins can do more than create beautiful, seamless fillings. Here are just a few of the problems that can be repaired with cosmetic bonding.
Since applying cosmetic bonding involves adding to the teeth instead of taking away material, these procedures are quite comfortable. After the teeth are carefully cleaned, polished, and dried, Dr. White will prepare the surface of the tooth to improve adhesion between the repair and the enamel. After the area is cleaned, rinsed, and dried again, Dr. White will choose a color of composite resin that matches your teeth, and sculpt it into place. After shaping the resin, a small handheld UV light is used to set the material. After the repair has hardened, it will be polished and shaped to blend in with the rest of the teeth. Cosmetic bonding is a relatively quick procedure, and many repairs can be performed in under 30 minutes. With proper care and maintenance, your cosmetic bonding will last many years.
