In Southern California, we’re surrounded by people with perfect, Hollywood smiles. While we would all love to have naturally straight, well-shaped teeth, the reality is very few of us have that naturally gorgeous grin. Luckily, there is an easy procedure to correct gapped, chipped, or uneven teeth, and get you that brilliant smile: dental bonding.
When it comes to improving your smile, dental bonding can be used in a variety of ways. Dental bonding is a painless, quick and affordable treatment that requires minimal prep. The bonding, which is a tooth-colored plastic and glass mixture that bonds directly to the surface of your tooth, can correct a number of cosmetic flaws. Here at Couture Smiles Dental Group in Woodland Hills, California, our expert dental team uses a composite resin material that matches the color of your teeth to perform the bonding. Read on to learn why Dr. Nicole Sazgar is so fond of this procedure and how you can get started.
What is tooth bonding?
Dental bonding is a super simple procedure and only requires one visit to the dentist, unlike some other tooth-replacement procedures (like dental implants). Here’s what you can expect during your tooth bonding appointment:
What concerns can bonding address?
Bonding has the unique ability to address dental concerns that are purely cosmetic as well as those that threaten your oral health. Here are some common reasons why dental bonding may be suggested:
- Fix chips, cracks or other minor fractures
- Lighten a dark, yellowed or discolored tooth
- Correct minor gap between two teeth
- Change the length of a tooth that appears too short
- Repair a cavity
- Replace an amalgam (silver) filling
- Reduce sensitivity by protecting exposed root surfaces
Dental bonding is proven to be safe for both children and adults. It’s an effective way to get the smile you’ve always wanted, without having to come into our office multiple times.
