Cosmetic dentistry includes everything from veneers and crowns to teeth whitening and Invisalign. They are effective treatments that can make your smile look significantly better. But when those treatments are not possible, you may be a candidate for dental bonding. Learn about dental bonding, a cosmetic option offered by Dr. Adel Mansour at Central Florida Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Kissimmee, FL, and proudly serving the Hunters Creek, FL area.
What Does Dental Bonding Do?
Dental bonding reinforces targeted areas of your smile (usually the front teeth) using a special composite material. It also helps improve the shape and appearance of your teeth. The dentist layers the material onto the tooth and bonds it to the surface. While the results aren’t always as perfect as other treatments, like veneers or crowns, bonding will give your smile a significant upgrade.
Can Bonding Help My Smile?
There are a few specific cases where bonding can help. See if any of these cases apply to your smile and then make time to see your Hunters Creek, FL dentist:
- A broken or chipped tooth due to a sports injury.
- A tooth that is too small and doesn’t fit in with the rest.
- A small gap between the front teeth.
- Minor dental stains that can’t be whitened.
What You Can Expect at a Dental Bonding Appointment
You will be pleasantly surprised to learn that dental bonding often requires just 30 to 60 minutes in the dentist’s chair. It is a painless and quick procedure. The dentist will apply the composite material and use a curing light to bond it to your teeth. After a few more minutes of shaping and polishing, you can check out your new smile. Sometimes dental bonding can be combined with other treatments, like crowns or partial dentures.
