Imperfections of the natural teeth can cause patients to feel self-conscious about their appearance. It may make them reconsider social situations, as they may feel embarrassed about issues such as breakage, gaps between teeth, or even permanent staining. With the help of a Redlands, CA dentist, patients can visit a dental clinic for treatment of these cosmetic issues with composite resin bonding.
HOW COMPOSITE RESIN BONDING WORKS
In aesthetic dentistry, dentists will want to provide a treatment that improves the appearance of the smile. Cosmetic solutions such as composite resin bonding provides this option. Imperfections such as breakage, staining, gaps, and other issues can be easily addressed in one appointment with composite resin bonding. This is a clay-like material that the dentist can use to address many aesthetic concerns. The tooth is prepared, the resin is applied to the tooth, and the dentist shapes it into place. Using a special curing light, the composite resin is hardened and then filed and polished to look just like natural tooth enamel. By the end of the treatment, the cosmetic issue is addressed, and patients can leave the office with a beautiful, brand new smile!
WHAT IS COMPOSITE RESIN BONDING USED FOR?
- Gapped teeth
- Stained teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Broken teeth
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HAVE BONDING COMPLETED?
In most cases, composite resin bonding treatments are relatively fast. They are completed in just one appointment, unlike other treatments used for imperfections such as porcelain veneers, which require a few weeks to complete. While porcelain veneers may be suggested as an alternative, composite resin bonding provides a more economical solution for many of our patients.
WHY CHOOSE COMPOSITE RESIN BONDING?
Composite resin bonding has many benefits. It is fast, effective, and natural-looking when done by a trained and experienced dentist such as Dr. Terry Vines. Additionally, it allows patients to address an issue quickly in a manner that will last many years before replacement needs to be done. Patients love that composite resin bonding provides a solution that is affordable, often a fraction of the cost of more traditional treatment such as porcelain veneers. However, patients should be aware of the downfalls of composite resin bonding. This material does not last as long as porcelain veneers and is more susceptible to staining and discoloration. Many patients find that the treatment will suit their needs and budget and choose to move forward with this and other cosmetic solutions available at our practice.
