When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, there are many options available today to improve the look of your smile. Some people might be thinking of complicated, expensive procedures, but the truth is, many cosmetic dentistry procedures can dramatically improve the look of your smile safely and quickly. One of those options is dental bonding.
If you have teeth with gaps, or teeth that are misshapen, cracked, or chipped, dental bonding might be the answer. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of dental bonding with your Glenview cosmetic dentist.
Dental Bonding Improves Smiles
Dental bonding uses a composite resin that is matched to the patient's natural teeth to provide a realistic and seamless blending with the surrounding teeth. The resin is applied to the tooth and cured into place, creating a beautiful smile for our patients in just one visit. Many patients find bonding is a good choice for them, as it can restore and beautify teeth while minimizing the number of appointments required for treatment.
Dental bonding can be used to improve teeth that are stained, chipped, cracked, misshapen or separated by unattractive minor gaps. Some of the benefits include:
- There is little to no removal of the tooth enamel, so the health and natural structure of your tooth is preserved.
- Dental bonding is a less extensive procedure than restorations such as porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
- The procedure can usually be completed in one appointment.
At Gallery Park Dental, we also use tooth-colored resin—like what is used for dental bonding—to fill teeth that have been damaged by cavities. Like the dental bonding procedure, tooth-colored fillings require limited preparation of the tooth’s healthy surface to complete. Tooth-colored fillings are an excellent option, particularly if you have a filling that is in the front of your mouth and shows when you talk or smile
