Cosmetic dentistry offers so many ways to enhance your smile that it’s possible to change virtually anything about the look of your teeth.
But what if you don’t need a “Hollywood” style makeover and only want to address minor flaws that have a significant impact on your smile? Cosmetic dental bonding in Wilmington, DE is a conservative, affordable dental procedure that helps perfect the look of your teeth.
How Does Cosmetic Bonding Work?
The tooth-colored material that your dentist uses to fill cavities looks very similar to dental enamel, which makes it perfect for dental bonding.
To perform dental bonding in Pike Creek, DE, your dentist matches the shade of the tooth-colored material to match your teeth. Before it’s set, the material is moldable, and your dentist expertly sculpts and shapes it to create seamless cosmetic repairs.
After your cosmetic dentist sets the bonded repair with a curing light, it is virtually indistinguishable from the rest of the tooth.
What Problems Does Dental Bonding Fix?
Dental bonding is an affordable, conservative treatment option that corrects many cosmetic smile flaws:
- Chipped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Teeth that are differently sized
- Severe tooth staining
If you’d like the look of dental veneers but aren’t quite ready to commit to the process, your dentist can use dental bonding to create direct veneers. Instead of taking impressions of your teeth and having a dental lab create custom veneers, your dentist creates a “direct veneer,” with cosmetic bonding by placing the material directly on the tooth to create a seamless repair. The process is so efficient that your dentist can often correct several smile flaws in one visit.
