Read more to discover how bonding can help you in your resolution to be more confident.
What Is Cosmetic Bonding?
During a cosmetic bonding procedure, your dentist will apply a tooth-colored composite resin to your pearly whites. This material is quite malleable and can be molded to improve the size, shape, and color of your tooth. Whether you have gaps between your teeth, chips, cracks, or stains, bonding can most likely fix the issue.
Advantages of Cosmetic Bonding
Some of the benefits of cosmetic bonding in Fort Worth include:
Bonding requires very little, if any, of your natural tooth structure to be removed. It also usually does not even require anesthesia.
Other cosmetic dentistry treatments like veneers and crowns take more than one appointment, as the tooth has to be prepared. Then, the restoration must be crafted in a dental lab. Bonding can be completed in just one appointment. In fact, many patients get several teeth bonded in the same visit.
Bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures.
How Do You Care for Your Bonded Teeth?
Luckily, teeth that have been bonded do not require any special treatment than your non-bonded teeth. Simply brush and floss as normal, and attend regular checkups and cleanings to make sure your bonding stays intact. One thing to keep in mind is that dental bonding is susceptible to stains, so it’s best to reduce your consumption of highly pigmented foods and beverages, like coffee, wine, tea, berries, and dark sauces.
If you’re looking to improve your smile just in time for 2020, there’s no better way to do it than cosmetic bonding in Hulen. Call your dentist and schedule an appointment today!
