Do you avoid showing your teeth when smiling or chatting with a friend? You don’t need to let insecurities about your teeth hold you back from smiling your biggest. Your cosmetic dentist in Summerfield, Dr. Parry, has an affordable and effective solution to enjoy the smile of your dreams. Cosmetic dental bonding can revamp your teeth and self-esteem after just 1 or 2 appointments. You’ll have natural-looking results you’ll be proud to share with the world.
Also called direct bonding, the minimally invasive procedure uses a composite resin material with a putty-like appearance. It’s perfectly shaded to match to color of your teeth to blend in with your enamel. It can be sculpted to fix a variety of concerns, including:
Although the treatment is right for most patients, you’ll still require a consultation with Dr. Parry to ensure it’s suitable for your goals. He’ll examine your teeth and learn more about the results you want to create a personalized strategy.
After your initial consultation, you’ll be scheduled for your procedure. If you’re only treating 1 or 2 teeth, it generally takes 30 to 60 minutes. If you want to improve several teeth, Dr. Parry may recommend more than one visit.
Once your tooth has been cleaned, Dr. Parry will apply a weak acid to it to open the pores in your enamel to ensure a strong bond. Your tooth will be rinsed and dried before the resin is applied to it, which has been previously shaded to the color of your enamel. After it has been sculpted into the ideal shape, a special dental light will quickly harden it. Your tooth will be smoothed and polished, so you will walk out of the office with the stunning smile you deserve.
There are more options than ever to achieve a picture-perfect smile; however, cosmetic bonding continues to rank among the top elective procedures. Overall, you get a lot of bang for your buck because of countless advantages, including:
Dental bonding can last for a decade or longer with the right care, like committing to your oral hygiene at home and visiting your dentist regularly. It’s also a good idea to avoid anything that might damage it, such as sticky or hard foods, using your teeth as tools, or chewing on inedible objects, like your nails. Just like your enamel, the resin can discolor over time, so you’ll need to be proactive about staining.
Don’t let an unattractive smile prevent you from feeling your best. It’s time to make new memories with an attractive, confident smile. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation to see if dental bonding is right for you.
