Dental Bonding Is a Conservative and Affordable Way to Enhance Your Smile
A beautiful smile can rejuvenate your entire appearance and give you a big boost of confidence. If you want an easy, affordable way to enhance your smile, consider dental bonding at our Lakewood, CO-area practice. During this treatment, Dr. Brian J. Polidori will apply composite resin to the teeth, concealing chips, cracks, and other small imperfections. Bonding offers realistic cosmetic results, and it can be a great way to determine if you would eventually like to receive porcelain veneers, a more permanent solution.
Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Bonding?
Dr. Polidori uses bonding to serve a diverse range of cosmetic functions. The treatment may be appropriate if you wish to address:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Worn dental enamel
- Dramatic intrinsic discoloration that will not respond to teeth whitening
- Small gaps between your teeth
- Minor misalignment
- Slightly crooked teeth
Bonding is a conservative treatment, and Dr. Polidori will not need to alter the structure of your teeth. As a result, it is suitable for a wide range of patients. If you have been told that you do not qualify for veneers due to enamel erosion, bonding may be the answer.
What Happens during Dental Bonding?
As the first step of your treatment, Dr. Polidori will cover your teeth in a mild solution, which will lightly etch your dental enamel. The solution will create tiny grooves in your teeth, which will increase the surface area and foster a stronger bond with the dental resin.
If you have been told that you do not qualify for veneers due to enamel erosion, bonding may be the answer.
Next, Dr. Polidori will apply the composite resin. This material is the same that is used for composite fillings, and it comes in various shades. Dr. Polidori will select a shade that is a near-perfect match to your smile. He will apply the resin carefully, completely concealing flaws. He will also make sure that the material has a smooth and realistic finish. Finally, Dr. Polidori will use a curing light to harden the material, and he will polish it to achieve a natural-looking appearance.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding can dramatically transform your smile. The treatments is effective, conservative, and versatile. Because it involves virtually no alteration of your teeth, it is a painless treatment.
As you consider your cosmetic dentistry options, you should note that bonding is not as durable as porcelain veneers. To maintain your enhanced smile, you will need to replace the composite periodically.
