Obtain dental composite bonding to enhance one or more teeth
Imperfections in the smile can leave patients feeling less than thrilled about how they look when they laugh, smile, and socialize with others. In situations such as this, Dr. Mark A. Miller and his team at Snow Park Dental in Albuquerque, New Mexico, may suggest solutions such as composite resin bonding. Dental composite bonding, also known as resin bonding or dental bonding, is a fast, easy, and affordable way to address a range of imperfections that may appear near the front of the smile and impact one’s otherwise beautiful teeth!
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a method of restoring a tooth that might be imperfect due to unusually-shaped teeth, stained teeth, or chipped and broken teeth. Using a composite resin material, the dentist will prepare the tooth and roughen the surface. Then, the composite resin material is applied to the tooth and shaped in place. A special light is used to harden the resin or “cure” it, after which Dr. Miller will then file and polish it so it looks just like natural tooth enamel! The composite resin matches the teeth for perfect integration and to ensure the results are unnoticeable as dental restorations.
What alternative options may be available?
If you are looking to improve the smile’s radiance, quality, and overall appearance with dental bonding, you may find it an excellent solution for your unique needs. However, dental bonding is susceptible to staining and will need to be replaced after a few years. That is why some patients might consider alternatives such as porcelain veneers, which use thin ceramic shells bonded over the front of a tooth to disguise imperfections. This method lasts longer but takes longer to place and is more expensive than dental bonding. Dr. Mark Miller can help you choose the solution most appropriate for your individual needs.
