Small imperfections in the appearance of our teeth is nothing unusual, yet this issue can still cause us to feel self-conscious or even embarrassed about the appearance of our smile. Since there is more pressure than ever before to own a perfectly white and attractive smile, when we aren’t happy with the way that our teeth look, we can inadvertently let it hold us back in life – personally and professionally. This is because without confidence in our appearance, it becomes very difficult to grab opportunities and follow our dreams.
Fortunately, there is absolutely no need to leave with cosmetic imperfections in your smile. Cosmetic dentistry enables virtually any aspect of our teeth to be improved, including any minor imperfections. One very popular dentistry treatment that is used to correct such issues is known as cosmetic bonding and we can perform this service at our Virginia dentistry office locations.
Also sometimes referred to as dental bonding, this simple and effective technique is used to cover various types of imperfection so that teeth appear more uniform and more attractive. Some of the issues which composite bonding can help to address include:
Covering cracks, chips, and other superficial damage
Improving the color of the teeth by hiding stains and discoloration
Adding thickness to thin or eroded teeth
Closing small gaps between teeth
Adding height to undersized teeth
Since is it non-invasive and very quick and easy to perform, composite bonding is a very popular choice amongst patients with minor cosmetic concerns. The process involves using a special composite resin bonding agent which is applied to the enamel of the teeth and then spread and molded to the teeth in order to achieve the desired goals. Despite sounding very easy, a definite degree of skill and experience is needed if a natural and successful result is to be achieved. Once the resin is appropriately applied, it is then cured using a special light. This hardens it permanently to your teeth. Your teeth are then polished so that they look shiny and beautiful, and you are able to leave with your new and improved smile.
There are various advantages to choosing cosmetic bonding for your smile transformation. These include:
A solution that is minimally invasive. In. most cases, no natural tooth enamel needs to be removed before bonding can take place. This means no injections, no anesthetic, no drilling, and no worries!
Your treatment can be completed in just one visit. Unlike veneers and other similar solutions that require multiple appointments, your bonding will be carried out in just one visit to our offices.
You can add strength to your teeth. This is because the composite resin that is used in dental bonding is strong and durable and requires little maintenance.
In the event that your bonding requires some degree of repair or replacement, the process is very simple. Rather than removing the existing resin, it is instead ‘topped-up’ to resolve the issue.
The effects of cosmetic bonding are completely natural and have no impact on the way that your teeth feel. Instead, you can simply get on with enjoying your new smile!
