Enjoy cosmetic dental bonding for your teeth with a Pflugerville, TX dentist
Imperfect teeth can impact the appearance of the smile, even if it is healthy. Discoloration, unusually shaped teeth, or chips and cracks can detract from an otherwise beautiful smile. To combat this, many Pflugerville, TX area, patients discuss the benefits of cosmetic resin bonding.
What is dental bonding?
Dental bonding is a method of covering or disguising imperfections of the smile. It is a resin material for your teeth that can be shaped onto the tooth, cured with a special light, and then polished to look exactly like natural tooth enamel.
Who might benefit from cosmetic bonding?
The best uses of composite resin bonding are to address:
- Spaced/gapped teeth
- Chipped/cracked teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
Who is a candidate?
The best candidates for composite resin bonding are patients with a healthy smile who are looking to disguise certain imperfections of the smile. To determine candidacy, patients are urged to call Elite Smiles of Pflugerville in Texas to schedule a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with our team. Dr. Jordan Tucker may also suggest other options including orthodontic work or porcelain veneers.
What can I expect from my dental bonding procedure?
First, patients are made comfortable in the dental chair. The teeth are cleaned, and then the area being treated is filed down to create a rough area on the tooth. The resin material, which looks like clay, will be applied to the area, and then shaped by the dentist. With a special curing light, the resin is hardened, which then allows the dentist to polish the bonding to blend it with the natural tooth. When cosmetic dental bonding is performed by an experienced dental professional, the results will be natural-looking and extremely aesthetic. Most patients have a difficult time telling where the restoration was placed in comparison with their natural teeth.
