How Dental Bonding Repairs Teeth
Find out how this simple cosmetic procedure could improve the look of your smile.
It can be frustrating to deal with small imperfections in your smile. If you’ve been dreaming of a way to fix these issues without having to deal with invasive, time-consuming or painful procedures then the answer lies with our Lakewood, CO dentist Dr. Ronald L. Morse, who can give you the smile you’ve been dreaming about.
What is dental bonding?
Through dental bonding our Lakewood, CO general dentist applies a tooth-colored dental resin over the tooth, sculpting it to get the proper color and shape. This dental resin is the same kind used for filling a cavity, except that when it is used for cosmetic reasons there is no need for anesthesia or needles, making it a simple, quick and painless way to improve the overall look of a tooth or teeth.
How is dental bonding applied?
The resin we use is very much like putty, which allows us to mold it over the imperfections you have to mask them and to improve the overall shape of your smile. Once we have the right shape we will use a dental laser to painlessly harden the bonding to your tooth. After that, we may need to trim it and make some minor adjustments to the shape. Finally, we will polish the tooth so that it has the same sheen as the rest of your smile.
Who should get dental bonding?
Anyone dealing with small cracks, chips, discolorations or gaps between teeth could benefit from dental bonding. If you are looking for a way to lengthen or improve the shape of your teeth dental bonding may also be the right choice. When you come into our office for a consultation we will be able to examine your smile and determine if your teeth could benefit from this non-invasive cosmetic treatment.
Dental bonding can be a great and easy way to revamp your smile. If you want to find out if you should get cosmetic dentistry in Lakewood, CO call Dr. Ronald L. Morse to schedule your evaluation.
