Dealing with small imperfections in your smile? If so, dental bonding might be able to bonding

Most people assume that cosmetic dentistry is expensive or invasive and so they don’t even consider it; however, our Bedford, TX, dentist Dr. Phu Le is here to tell you that cosmetic dentistry can also offer simple, non-invasive, and inexpensive ways to enhance and bolster your smile. Learn more about dental bonding and whether it’s right for you.

What is dental bonding?

Do you know the tooth-colored resin used to fill a cavity? If you said “yes,” then you know the same material used in dental bonding. During bonding, this putty-like material is placed over one or more areas of a tooth and then hardened to it with a dental laser to improve the shape, color, or length of your smile.

Who could benefit from dental bonding?

While this resin can be a great way to enhance and improve the appearance of one or more tooth it’s important to recognize that it won’t be able to make more elaborate or extensive cosmetic changes. It might be time to talk to our Bedford, TX, cosmetic dentist about dental bonding if you are looking to hide these dental flaws:

  • Small discolorations
  • Minor chips and cracks
  • Minimal gaps between teeth
  • Worn or short teeth (to lengthen them)

Dental bonding can even change the overall shape or size of a tooth to give you a more even and symmetrical smile. If your goal is to make aesthetic tweaks to your smile then dental bonding could be the best option for you.

What goes into getting dental bonding?

The procedure is completely painless and it will usually take no more than 30 minutes per tooth.

Here are the steps involved in getting dental bonding:

Step 1: We choose the resin that most closely matches the shade of your tooth

Step 2: We apply the resin to the tooth and contour it over the imperfections

Step 3: Once the resin has been shaped, we will direct a laser over the treated area to harden the resin

Step 4: We will polish the tooth so that the resin casts the same sheen as natural tooth enamel

If you are interested in learning more about dental bonding and how it can enhance your smile then it’s time you called Advanced Family Dental to find out how they can help you. We are happy to provide comprehensive dentistry in Bedford and Keller, TX.

How can I straighten my teeth? 
No matter the severity of your misaligned teeth or bite, your dentist can help you get the smile you have always dreamed of with orthodontic treatment. Orthodontics, which used to be limited to traditional metal braces permanently attached to the teeth during treatment, has come a long way in recent years. You now have options to straighten your teeth, including traditional metal braces, ceramic tooth-colored braces, and Invisalign. While orthodontics may bring up visions of teenagers and high school, braces are available for both children over 12 and adults of all ages.

How can I make my teeth whiter? 
Teeth whitening treatments take only about an hour of your time and can give you dramatic results in just one session. The procedure takes place in your dentist’s office. Though the results are not permanent, they last for up to two years without requiring a touch-up appointment, making your teeth whitening sessions few and far between and a small price to pay for a beautiful smile.
