Cosmetic Dental Bonding for Beautiful Results
If those small chips and cracks in your teeth are bothering you, call and talk to Sturm & Associates. Dr. Judy Sturm, Dr. Nancy Kang and Dr. Janice Lo have the experience to help you choose the best solutions for stained, chipped and cracked teeth. One of those solutions may be cosmetic dental bonding.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
This type of procedure is less invasive than porcelain veneers and cosmetic dental crowns. In addition, it is usually completed in a single dental appointment making the entire process fast and easy.
What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?
This restorative procedure that your dentist in Toronto uses is applied to the tooth. The bonding changes the color, repairs chips and cracks and is also used for tooth colored fillings.
Made from dental resin, the material, while not as strong as porcelain, will last for 5 to 10 years as long as you practice good oral habits. These include brushing twice and flossing once each day.
Cosmetic dental bonding, when used along with enamel shaping, can drastically alter the size and shape of a tooth without compromising it. In other words, there is no enamel removal.
Veneers and crowns require enamel removal. This means both cosmetic dentistry procedures are permanent.
How the Process Works
If you and your dentist in Yorkville determine that bonding is a good solution for your issue, your teeth are prepped with a conditioning liquid. The liquid strengthens and etches the tooth to prepare for the bond.
After etching, Dr. Sturm, Dr. Kang or Dr. Lo will apply the resin that has been matched to the color of the tooth.
After application, which takes minutes, the bond is hardened with a laser or light. Once cured the bond is inspected before being shaped and polished.
This wonderful procedure works great for small chips and cracks and for teeth that are permanently stained.
Sturm & Associates may also recommend bonding for tooth colored fillings and inlays and onlays. If you have a small gap between your teeth, cosmetic dental bonding is also a great solution.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
If you have not liked your smile for some time, but aren’t prepared to go the permanent route with veneers or crowns, talk to Dr. Sturm, Dr. Kang or Dr. Lo.
This treatment is a wonderful alternative that is less expensive and can also be completed in a single dental visit.
