Dental Bonding to Restore Your Smile
Beautiful smiles start with proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits, but some smiles require a little more help. Stains, cracks, chips, discoloration–even the smallest imperfection–can affect how you feel about your smile. Niles Family Dentistry wants you to have a smile you are proud of and quick to share. Cosmetic dentistry can give you that brilliant smile. We make it easy for boulder-area residents to receive the treatment they need. If you have a cracked or chipped tooth, we use composite resin to reshape your tooth. This procedure, referred to as cosmetic dental bonding, is one type of restorative treatment used for both cosmetic and health purposes. Dental bonding when combined with teeth whitening can makeover your smile just in time for the holidays!
What to Expect with Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is an effective treatment option for teeth that need only minor corrections. A special type of tooth-colored, durable resin is bonded to the tooth, improving your smile with natural-looking results. Compared to other cosmetic procedures, dental bonding is an inexpensive and simple alternative. Unlike crowns and veneers, bonding can be done in one office visit (unless multiple teeth are being treated). Dental bonding also requires the least amount of enamel removal, which lessens potential tooth sensitivity to hot and cold foods. Anesthesia is rarely required unless bonding is used as a cavity filling. There is no special aftercare required, besides proper oral hygiene and dental habits. Dental bonding should last between 3 to 10 years before it needs replacement or touching up.
Are You a Candidate?
A popular and economical procedure, cosmetic dental bonding is an ideal corrective dental solution for many patients. Dental bonding improves mildly imperfect teeth without requiring more involved cosmetic procedures such as veneers or crowns. Cosmetic bonding may be inappropriate or inadequate for badly damaged teeth. Dental bonding is not recommended for all dental issues because it isn’t as strong as veneers, crowns, or porcelain fillings nor is it as stain resistant. Dental bonding is usually done on the front or surrounding teeth, which endure the least bite pressure. Dental bonding is recommended by Dr. Niles on a case-by-case basis, depending on what your smile needs to achieve full restoration.
Cosmetic dental bonding is an ideal corrective solution for:
- filling dental cavities, as an alternative to amalgam fillings
- repairing mild chips or cracks in the teeth (ideally the teeth with the least bite pressure)
- improving the appearance of stained teeth
- closing spaces between teeth
- changing the shape or lengthening teeth
- protecting exposed teeth roots due to receding gums
During your initial consultation, we can determine if you are a candidate for cosmetic dental bonding.
Teeth Whitening for a Brighter Smile
Teeth whitening can safely brighten your smile by 8 to 12 shades in just one office visit. Teeth Whitening is a fast, safe, and gentle treatment that employs specially formulated whitening gels and the patented light technology to brighten your teeth. This whitening treatment is the perfect for patients that have:
- discolored and stained teeth
- a need for significant results in a short amount of time
- a busy schedule with no time for multiple office visits
- sensitive teeth and gums
If you would rather whiten your teeth at home, there are at-home teeth whitening options for our patients. Both methods offer you different benefits that can help take your smile to the next level.
