It is said that a person’s smile is often the first thing that we notice when we meet someone new. A smile says a lot about who you are, is a source of confidence and is uniquely yours. It is only natural to want to achieve the best smile you possibly can. On this page, we are going to discuss one treatment that is available to help you with this, and that is dental bonding. If you have any questions about this service, or you would like to book an appointment, all you need to do is give us a call.
Just because your teeth are not causing you any pain does not mean that some dental work wouldn’t be helpful. If you have cracked teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth, and discolored teeth, some cosmetic options are available. You will be surprised by how much of a difference having a gap closed or a chip fixed makes in your life. You will be more confident, and you will find yourself smiling more often as well.
Dental bonding is one cosmetic procedure you should certainly think about if you require some minor cosmetic dental work. This involves fixing structural imperfections and minor dental issues are repaired and restored.
Composite resin is the material that is used for dental bonding. We can select from a vast range of resins, ensuring you have the correct one to match your teeth’s natural color. Polishing your teeth is the first step. Your dentist will then apply phosphoric acid to make the surface of the teeth rough. This rougher surface is going to help to keep the composite resin in place once it is applied to the area.
The application of composite resin in a manner that looks natural and matches your current teeth is a skill that we have perfected here at Chappaqua Dental. It must be applied and then smoothed and shaped until it looks perfect. This requires a supreme level of attention to detail, resulting in a beautifully shaped tooth that will match the shape of your natural teeth, enhancing and completing your smile.
Dental bonding is a relatively simple procedure. There are cases where anesthesia isn’t even necessary to complete a restoration. Most dental bonding procedures are quickly completed, unlike other restoration processes, it can usually be finished within just one visit. Plus, the improvements that have been made to your teeth will be noticeable right away.
You can use dental bonding to replace amalgam fillings
It is also worth pointing out that dental bonding can be used as a method of replacing amalgam fillings, which can be unsightly. A lot of people opt to replace their amalgam fillings because they want something that looks like a natural tooth in shade and coloring. It is long-lasting, durable, and reliable, ensuring your teeth will be protected. Plus, it will be almost impossible to tell that you even have a filling because it will be the same color as your teeth.
