Learn More About Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
Anything deemed “cosmetic” usually falls under the category of “unnecessary” or “optional.” But just how “unnecessary” is it to repair a smile riddled with cracks, discoloration, gaps, and more?
At Parkway Dental, we’re pretty confident that just about anyone would want to repair issues with their smile as soon as possible, thinking that doing so is anything but optional.
Cosmetic tooth bonding is a great way to do just that. If you look in the mirror and are distracted by imperfections in your smile, don’t wait another day to learn how we can fix it. We can help repair your teeth and give you a smile you can show off with confidence, every chance you get.
What Is Cosmetic Tooth Bonding?
Cosmetic tooth bonding is a procedure used to fix minor dental problems and improve the appearance of your smile. It’s one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to fix small cosmetic issues.
For tooth bonding, we use a composite resin material to repair various kinds of small cosmetic problems. The material used for bonding is similar to what we use for tooth-colored fillings.
The resin material is tooth-colored which means no one will be able to tell you’ve gotten work done unless you tell them! They’ll likely just end up asking you can’t stop smiling!
How Does Cosmetic Tooth Bonding Work?
If you’re a good candidate for tooth bonding, we’ll start the process by cleaning the surface of your tooth and preparing it for the bonding material. Next, we’ll add the resin and shape it as needed to fix whatever problem we are taking care of. A special light is then used to harden the resin, creating a permanent restoration.
We’ll work hard to make sure the restoration looks natural and solves the issue you’re concerned about. You’re then free to go on your way. That means you’re able to come into our office with a cosmetic issue and walk away with a completely restored smile after just one appointment!
What Is Cosmetic Tooth Bonding Used For?
Generally, tooth bonding is a great option if you’re looking to:
- Repair decayed teeth
- Repair a cracked or chipped tooth
- Fix discoloration
- Close gaps between teeth
- Make your teeth look longer
- Improve the shape of your teeth
- Protect part of your tooth’s root that has been exposed because of receding gums
With so many uses for cosmetic tooth bonding, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that there are several benefits to choosing tooth bonding as the cosmetic procedure to repair your smile.
Benefits Of Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
There are several benefits to choosing dental bonding as your go-to cosmetic procedure for various, less-severe dental issues. One of the main benefits of dental bonding is that it’s one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic procedures to perform in dentistry.
In most cases, we can take care of the entire process in just one office visit, compared to two or more for most other cosmetic dental procedures.
Additionally, for tooth bonding, very little enamel needs to be removed. Unless we’re performing a bonding procedure to fill a cavity, you likely won’t even need anesthesia. But if you’re feeling nervous or suffer from dental anxiety, don’t hesitate to ask us about our sedation dentistry options. We want you to feel completely comfortable during your time at our Snellville, GA dental office.
