Even the smallest cosmetic dental alterations can produce amazing results.
It’s amazing how even the tiniest chips or discolorations in a smile can feel so noticeable to everyone around you. Of course, because the problems seem so minor, you may not think cosmetic dentistry is the right approach for you. However, given how quick and simple the cosmetic treatments in our Providence family dental office are, you may be surprised to learn how easy it really is to obtain your perfect smile!
What is Dental Bonding?
Dealing with tiny, chips, cracks, discolorations, or gaps between your teeth? If you said “yes” to any of these issues, dental bonding might just be the treatment for you! Sure, we know that a small chip may not seem like the end of the world to some, but it can definitely make some people feel self-conscious about their smile.
Luckily, there exists dental bonding, a completely painless technique in which a tooth-colored material is applied over imperfections in order to hide them. Our Providence cosmetic dentist can use this procedure to improve the shape and size of a tooth, consequently enhancing the symmetry and appearance of your smile.
What Materials are Used?
The material used during dental bonding is the same material used to fill a cavity. Composite resin is a durable material that is applied and easily molded and shaped over small chips, gaps, and discolorations. The material is then permanently hardened into place. Since the material is first matched to the tooth, this means that no one will even notice which tooth has received bonding treatment.
How Long Does it Take?
Dental bonding is the fastest and least expensive cosmetic option out there to enhance and bolster your smile. We understand that everyone has different needs when it comes to improving their smiles, and simple measures such as dental bonding can go a long way for some people who don’t need major cosmetic alterations.
Dental bonding treatment takes anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour, depending on which tooth we are treating. Bonding can even be performed when you come in for your next six-month cleaning, meaning you won’t have to take more time out of your busy schedule to book a separate dental appointment to get the procedure done.
