Are there chips and cracks in your tooth enamel? Do you want to treat the imperfections in your smile? Cosmetic dental bonding may be the perfect option for your dental issues. Thanks to the wide variety of cosmetic dental services available today, it’s never been easier to correct dental flaws and get the smile of your dreams! However, if you only need to fix up one or two minor imperfections, some of these treatments may seem somewhat excessive.
That’s why Dr. Michael Courter offers cosmetic dental bonding in Midland. With this quick, easy, and affordable treatment, we can help you say goodbye to chips, stains, gaps, and more.
Dental bonding treatment is similar to porcelain veneers because they can both address injured, weakened, or stained teeth. However, bonding often offers a quicker procedure and more economical treatment. Teeth bonding treatment benefits patients with smaller dental injuries who are looking for an efficient way to add structure to their tooth enamel.
What Can Teeth Bonding Fix?
Cosmetic dental bonding uses a composite resin to improve the size, shape, and color of one or more teeth. In fact, it uses the same lifelike and durable material we use for tooth-colored fillings! Composite resin bonds very well to natural tooth structure, which helps it stay strong and in place for a decade or more with the proper care. It can also be shaded to match the color of the surrounding enamel for seamless results. Cosmetic dental bonding can correct issues like:
- Minor cracks and chips in the enamel.
- Stubborn discoloration and stains.
- Noticeable gaps or spaces.
- Small or worn-down teeth.
- Misshapen teeth.
- Slightly crooked teeth.
- Small gaps between teeth.
Please contact our office if you have dental injuries, crooked teeth, or gaps in your smile that you would like to fix with dental bonding. We will take your budget, goals, and history into account to see if tooth bonding is the right treatment option for your needs.
Why Choose Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is similar to porcelain veneers in that it’s a good treatment for a variety of different uses. Bonding can fix anything that porcelain veneers can fix. The difference is that it’s a temporary option while veneers are a permanent solution. A dentist can completely remove the bonding material if you change your mind. We can also use it to fix issues in children, even on their primary teeth, because it’s completely removable by a dentist.
Because it’s temporary, it’s also a more economical option. It’s more affordable than veneers. It’s also nice because almost every type of patient is eligible for dental bonding. Whether you have budget constraints or aren’t ready to commit to a permanent restoration, bonding can take care of it. The material is malleable and the dentist can mold it into just about any shape for your needs.
More benefits of dental bonding include:
- Ability to erase different types of flaws. Thanks to its versatility, cosmetic dental bonding can be used to address many different types of issues with one easy treatment.
- Fast, beautiful results. Since composite resin can be applied so quickly, this service is a great option if you have an important event coming up, such as a wedding or job interview.
- Cost-effective solution. Even though cosmetic dental bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments available, you can expect to enjoy the results for many years to come!
Teeth Bonding Treatment
After you and your Midland cosmetic dentist have determined that dental bonding is right for you, it usually only takes one quick and easy appointment to improve your smile! First, we’ll provide a dental cleaning to prepare your teeth for bonding treatment. Next, we will create a custom shade of composite resin that matches the color of your teeth. Then, Dr. Courter will apply it directly onto your tooth and precisely sculpt it over the cosmetic flaw. Once it looks just like a natural part of your tooth, we’ll use a special curing light to harden it and bond it in place. Lastly, we’ll polish it up and ensure your bite feels comfortable, then you’ll be ready to enjoy your new beautiful smile!
Stay away from pigmented beverages as well as hard and sticky foods immediately following your treatment. These foods can damage the bonded teeth. Bonded teeth remain bright and uniform for a long time with proper care. You can brush and floss bonded teeth just like your natural teeth to maintain your results.
