For our patients who are interested in a conservative yet effective cosmetic treatment, our dentists may recommend cosmetic dental bonding. With this treatment, we can whiten teeth, correct imperfections in your smile, and improve the appearance of misshapen teeth. Call VIP Smiles today to schedule your appointment and learn if dental bonding is right for you.
What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?
Also known as cosmetic bonding, dental bonding is simple, quick, and requires no shots, needles, or drilling. To start the dental bonding procedure, our dentists will coat your natural tooth structure with a material called composite resin. This resin substance is matched to your natural tooth color to provide a natural-looking effect. If you would like to use dental bonding to whiten your teeth by correcting tooth staining and spotting, we may use a shade of composite resin that is lighter than your original tooth color. Our dentists will then skillfully shape the resin to fit the shape of your teeth and correct your smile’s imperfections.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dental Bonding Last?
Cosmetic Dental Bonding is an efficient and effective choice for repairing cracked, chipped or broken teeth. As previously mentioned, it is also a great choice for brightening up your smile. However, one might ask how long dental bonding lasts before deciding to undergo a cosmetic bonding procedure. Dental bonding typically lasts up to ten years before needing to be refreshed. An individual may need to get their dental bonding touched up as soon as three years depending on their habits and hygiene. If a person grinds their teeth or tends to chew on hard objects, they may need to get their dental bonding replaced earlier.
Is Dental Bonding Painful?
Cosmetic Dental Bonding is almost always a painless procedure. Most individuals experience sensitivity to hot and cold foods after a dental bonding procedure, but this discomfort can be relieved with simple over-the-counter pain medications. Although it is more likely that you will not feel a high level of pain during or after a dental bonding procedure, each person will experience different symptoms and have different levels of pain tolerance.
Why Choose Cosmetic Dental Bonding?
Cosmetic Dental Bonding can be used to:
- Fill in spaces and gaps in between teeth
- Correct teeth that are chipped, fractured, or broken
- Improve the appearance and functionality of irregularly shaped teeth
- Restore teeth that have become worn over time
- Lighten teeth that are spotted, stained, or discolored
Once the composite resin is shaped as you desire, we harden it with a special light and polish it to match your smile. This entire process can generally be completed in a single visit to VIP Smiles, and often in less than one hour. If you choose dental bonding as your choice for enhancing your smile and oral health, you will likely experience all of these great benefits along with greater confidence and great satisfaction with your appearance.
