When your teeth are not in their best condition, it can cause you to feel embarrassed and stressed. Problems that affect the appearance of your teeth do not have to negatively impact your self-image. There are a number of cosmetic dental procedures available from the team at Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry in Redlands, CA, and we can help you determine which approach to smile enhancement is best for your needs and expectations.
BONDING AND VENEERS, TWO POPULAR OPTIONS
Two of the most common ways that dentists disguise cosmetic flaws are with bonding and porcelain veneers. Essentially, bonding is also a type of veneer, often called a direct veneer. Each method of covering natural tooth structure has its benefits.
The dental bonding procedure is an excellent solution to small imperfections. The process is completed in a single sitting, which many patients find appealing. It involves placing a putty-like resin onto the tooth, and then shaping it. Once the desired shape has been achieved, the resin is cured with light. Hardened on the tooth, bonding should last for several years. Because it is not distinguishable from natural enamel, your smile will look authentic and attractive!
This cosmetic treatment is well suited to larger imperfections. The transformative process occurs over two visits. First we discuss the desired outcome and prepare teeth for their new covers. Molds are also taken, and are sent to the dental lab that will make veneers from this model of your teeth. The final restorations are typically ready for placement in about ten days. Before bonding veneers onto your teeth, we will temporarily affix them so you can observe the final outcome. If adjustments are necessary, we may be able to make them during this visit, and send you back into the world with an attractive new smile that you feel confident about. Bonding and veneers can treat concerns such as:
- Resistant staining
- Cracks and chips
- Narrow teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Unusual shape or size
- Worn enamel
