Cosmetic Bonding in Bowling Green
Sometimes small changes can make a big impact -- and that couldn’t be more true than with how cosmetic bonding can work for your smile. If you’ve got slight imperfections in your front teeth, find out how you can have them improved quickly, easily and painlessly with cosmetic bonding from Dr. Derik E. Utz.
All About Cosmetic Bonding
Cosmetic bonding is an excellent solution that uses a natural-looking composite resin to improve the appearance of teeth. It can be used to correct a variety of dental problems, including the following:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Slightly gapped teeth
- Small tooth misalignments
- Misshapen teeth
- Noticeably stained or discolored teeth that haven’t improved with teeth whitening
To enhance the appearance of your smile with cosmetic bonding, Dr. Utz will first prepare your damaged or imperfect tooth by cleaning and roughening the surface to help the composite resin bond securely with the enamel. Then he’ll apply the resin directly onto the surface, and shape it as necessary to make sure it blends perfectly with the rest of your smile. Once the artistry is complete, the resin will be hardened with a special light. All in all, the process is completed in less than half an hour -- and you’re soon walking out of our office with your new and improved smile.
Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding
There are numerous advantages of choosing cosmetic bonding, especially for adults who don’t wish to invest in other, more involved aesthetic treatments. We’ve listed just a few of the most common benefits of cosmetic bonding below -- which would you enjoy the most?
- Cosmetic bonding offers beautiful results with no need for anaesthesia.
- Compared to porcelain veneers or other cosmetic solutions, bonding is by far the most affordable option for improving the appearance of an imperfect smile.
- Cosmetic bonding is completed in just one visit to Dr. Utz’s office, compared to two to three with porcelain veneers.
Dental bonding is often used for tooth-colored fillings, too. This option restores teeth after decay without marring the smile with a silver, or amalgam filling. In addition to repairing new spots of decay, old metal fillings can also be replaced with those made of composite resin to enhance the appearance of a smile or to prevent future problems with the filling.
