Some people are unhappy with the way their teeth look and mistakenly assume that cosmetic dentistry is far too expensive to pursue.
Sure, a complete mouth reconstruction can be an expensive investment. Consider the cost of dental school and post-graduate training for a master level cosmetic dentist. Consider the expense of individually creating multiple restorations at a high-tech dental lab. Consider the cost of setting up and maintaining a full-service dental practice or laboratory.
But before you give up on improving your smile, look at a less celebrated but extremely effective and cost-effective cosmetic dental remedy that we offer at Cary Family Dental in the Raleigh and Cary, North Carolina areas: dental bonding.
Dental bonding provides a wide range of applications for unattractive teeth. Bonding can fix a tooth that is damaged, chipped, short, or discolored. It can can also repair teeth that have gaps in between them.
How does the dental bonding procedure work?
First, your tooth will be slightly (but painlessly) roughed up to help the resin adhere. Your dentist will use a shade guide to determine the specific color of composite to match the existing teeth. Your dentist will apply liquid composite resin on the tooth, layer by layer. He or she will carefully shape and polish it before it hardens.The tooth is then covered with a conditioning liquid that helps with adhesion.
Once the resin is bonded, it is further molded to the exact shape for your bite and appearance. A laser helps swiftly bond the resin in place as it hardens. Further shaping and polishing, if required, complete the procedure. The result is a beautiful smile.
Bonding is a simple and cost-effective method for perfecting your smile.
