Some people are unhappy with the way their teeth look but many assume that cosmetic dentistry is too costly. Sure, a complete mouth reconstruction can be expensive. But before you give up on improving your smile, consider a less celebrated but effective and economical remedy from the dentist at Town and Country Cosmetic Dentistry and Implant Center: dental bonding.
Dental bonding has a wide range of applications for unattractive teeth. Bonding can fix a tooth that is damaged, chipped, short, or discolored. It can can also correct teeth that have gaps in between them.
How does the dental bonding procedure work?
First, your tooth will be slightly (but painlessly) roughed up to help the resin adhere. We will use a shade guide to determine the specific color of composite to match the existing teeth. Next we will apply liquid composite resin on the tooth, layer by layer, and then carefully shape and polish it before it hardens. Then the tooth is covered with a conditioning liquid that helps with adhesion.
Once the resin is bonded, it is further molded to the perfect shape for your bite and appearance. A laser helps bond the resin in place as it hardens. Further shaping and polishing, if necessary, completes the procedure. The result is a beautiful smile.
