Dental Bonding: A Cost-Effective Cosmetic Treatment for Minor Imperfections
What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment that uses composite resin to transform the size, shape, and color the teeth. We can customize the shade of the resin to precisely match the rest of your smile for a lifelike appearance. This treatment is ideal for concealing a range of cosmetic concerns, including:
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Dark dental stains that cannot be treated with teeth whitening
- Small gaps between teeth
- Teeth that are disproportionate in size or asymmetrical
- Cracks and chips
The composite resin can also strengthen and reinforce teeth that have sustained minor damage.
Choosing The Right Treatment
After an initial consultation to evaluate your candidacy for dental bonding and plan your treatment, Dr. Dovgan will select a shade of composite resin that will match the rest of your smile. Once he places a barrier between the teeth and gums, he can begin the resin application. He will expertly apply the material to each individual tooth, molding and shaping it as needed to achieve your desired results.
Using a curing light, he will harden the material, and then perform a final polishing to give the bonded teeth a lifelike appearance. The entire process can take as few as 30 minutes, depending on the number of teeth requiring treatment. At the conclusion of your appointment, you can leave our office with a smile free from imperfections that may have made you feel self-conscious.
