If you're not happy with the way your teeth look, you can invest in a stunning smile without requiring extensive dental work. Dr. Rebecca Long can fix a variety of minor aesthetic flaws using a minimally invasive procedure that produces natural-looking results. Cosmetic bonding provides a lot of bang for your buck because it is affordable and effective. Whether you're embarrassed by stained, chipped, or decayed teeth, cosmetic dental bonding may be right for you.
Cosmetic dental bonding offers both restorative and aesthetic benefits. A composite resin is shaded to the color of enamel to blend in with a tooth when used to fix various issues, like:
Cosmetic bonding creates results that look natural and can last for 5 to 15 years with the right aftercare, like brushing and flossing.
Dr. Long will examine your mouth to determine if you're a candidate for cosmetic bonding. The procedure takes 30 to 90 minutes, depending on how many teeth you are treating. Dr. Long may administer a local numbing agent to block any pain, but it isn't always necessary.
After cleaning your tooth, she will place a weak acid on it to open the pores in your enamel to ensure a strong bond. Your tooth is rinsed and dried before the resin is placed on it. After molding it into the ideal shape, Dr. Long will use a special dental light to harden it in a few seconds. She'll smooth and polish your tooth, and you'll walk out of our dental office with a beautiful smile that you'll be proud of.
Cosmetic bonding is a great option for people wanting to improve their smile, but don't want to undergo complex dental procedures. It's also a great solution for patients looking for a budget-friendly procedure to address minor concerns.
Cosmetic dental bonding continues to be one of the most popular elective services performed every year. The procedure is quick and there's no downtime. After just one appointment, you can have dramatic results using a biocompatible material. Only a trained dental professional will know the bonding isn't part of your natural tooth. Cosmetic bonding is a great investment because it is affordable, and it can even be partially covered by your dental insurance.
You don't have to spend several months at the dentist to achieve the smile of your dreams. Cosmetic bonding can create an attractive smile that you'll love. Request an appointment through her website or call (512) 856-1886.
