Getting the beautiful smile you’ve been dreaming of doesn’t have to break the bank.
Patients in need of a cosmetic treatment have the more affordable option of composite dental bonding. Cosmetic dental bonding is a procedure that can fix a number of imperfections including stains, cavities, gaps, cracks, chips and more. It can rebuild tooth structure, fill in space, lengthen and improve the strength of your teeth.
If you have chipped, cracked, decayed, discolored, fractured, gapped, jagged, misshapen teeth and you have a budget you need to stick to, you may want to discuss the option of cosmetic dental bonding with your dentist as a less expensive treatment. In some cases, dental bonding is used as an alternative to fillings. With meticulous application, your dentist can restore decayed teeth with this process.
What is composite dental bonding?
It’s a simple and conservative cosmetic dentistry treatment—most of your natural tooth structure will be preserved. The process is affordable, quick and painless. It can usually be accomplished in just one appointment. Your dentist will prepare your tooth for the procedure, slightly roughening it. In this process, very little enamel is removed, if at all. Conditioning liquid will then be applied. Then, your dentist will apply tooth-colored resin to your existing tooth, carefully forming it into the right shape. The color of the composite resin will be matched to your teeth, making it look natural. It will then be cured with ultraviolet light to harden it and bond it to your tooth surface. It will then be sculpted to match your natural teeth. Then, your newly bonded tooth will be polished to make it shine. Your dentist will then check that your bite is comfortable and that your teeth do not rub together unnaturally because of the bonding. The entire process doesn’t take a lot of time: each tooth usually takes just half an hour to an hour to finish. You will walk out of the clinic with instantly improved teeth and the ability to smile, speak and eat with confidence.
After your treatment, it is essential to maintain good oral hygiene and continue with your regular dental checkups. While composite resin is a durable material, you can avoid damaging your bonded teeth by resisting the urge to bite your nails, chewing on hard objects or using your teeth to rip open packages. Wear a mouth guard when you engage in contact sports. If you grind your teeth at night, ask the dentist to provide a night guard. Cosmetic dental bonding usually lasts from three to 10 years but that will depend on your dental care habits. But don’t worry, repairs or replacements are easy and affordable.
You don’t need to feel self-conscious about your pearly whites. Cosmetic dental bonding is a versatile and pocket-friendly way to improve your smile.
