If a new smile is something that you have been considering, call and schedule an appointment with Ericson Dental who can help you come up with a plan for a new toothy grin that is much more affordable than you think.
The American Dental Association explains that dental bonding, also known as cosmetic bonding, can help fill that unsightly gap between your front teeth or fix teeth that have been chipped. If your teeth are stained or dull, dental bonding could be the answer. Dental bonding can also be used for inlays, onlays, tooth colored fillings or to lengthen or shorten your teeth.
When you schedule an appointment with Ericson Dental for cosmetic bonding, Ericson Dental will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums to make sure you are a good candidate for cosmetic bonding.
If you have been given the all clear with healthy teeth and gums, Ericson Dental will use a tooth colored composite resin to repair your chipped, worn, or stained teeth. The material actually bonds to your teeth giving you that red carpet smile that you have always dreamed of having.
If Ericson Dental has determined that you are a good candidate for cosmetic bonding, a shade guide will be used to find a color that best matches your natural teeth. Once the hue has been selected, your teeth will be etched or roughened up with a solution that will help the bonding material adhere to your teeth. After etching, the composite resin will be applied to your tooth or teeth. The composite resin is then placed on the tooth or teeth before sculpting and molding to the desired shape and size. Once Ericson Dental is happy with the result, your restorations will be polished to match your natural teeth.
Cosmetic bonding isn’t for everyone as it isn’t as durable as porcelain veneers. However, if you are searching for an affordable cosmetic dental solution, cosmetic bonding could be the answer.
Cosmetic bonding is not as durable as your natural teeth but can last anywhere between five to seven years. It is recommended that you keep those pens and pencils out of your mouth and keep the ice cubes in the glass as cosmetic bonding can chip or crack.
Cosmetic bonding could be the answer, and if you would like more information regarding the affordable way to give you the smile that you deserve, call or click and schedule an appointment with Ericson Dental today.
