Our team at Marineland Dental Care wants every patient who visits our Kennewick, WA dental office to have a healthy, beautiful smile they love.
And we offer many restorative and cosmetic treatments to help you achieve that!
Today, we’re talking about one cosmetic dentistry option, tooth bonding, that’s often used as a faster, easier way to a great-looking smile!
Tooth Bonding: Subtle Change, BIG Difference!
One of the most overlooked cosmetic treatments is tooth bonding. Perhaps that’s because it’s such a quick, simple procedure that packs a powerful punch!
With this technique, you can make easy improvements to your smile such as:
*Cover teeth stains
*Fill small dents & dings on your teeth
*Smooth out rough edges
*Close tiny gaps between teeth
This treatment is quite affordable compared to dental veneers, yet it can do just as much to improve the appearance of your smile.
How Tooth Bonding Works
We use a tooth-colored resin material for tooth bonding. That means any tooth that’s treated will blend in nicely with the rest of your teeth.
After your tooth enamel is lightly and carefully prepared to optimize resin adhesion, the surface will often then be conditioned.
Dr. Hadley will gently and artfully apply the resin to your teeth, sculpt the surface and edges, harden the material, and then polish everything off to perfection!
The Pros Are Many!
Here are a few of the perks you can expect after your tooth bonding procedure:
*Your teeth will look whiter and brighter.
*The surface of your teeth will be free of dips, dings, and other wear for a smooth finish.
*Your overall smile will be beautifully enhanced.
*Since the resin in only applied to your enamel, bonding is a comfortable, easy treatment.
*You’ll experience an immediate boost in confidence when you see your new, improved smile.
The Cons Are Minimal!
This cosmetic treatment comes with very few cons or risks, in our professional experience, but you’ll want to be aware of certain lifestyle factors that could maximize, or minimize, the longevity of bonding.
The materials we use to administer the treatment is very strong, but if you’re looking for optimal strength, you’ll probably want to consider dental veneers instead.
That’s because veneers are bonding to cosmetically flawed teeth with fine porcelain shells that are more durable and longer-lasting.
You’ll also want to think about your oral hygiene routine and how dedicated you are to maintaining it every single day to keep your smile healthy and beautiful.
Also, patients who drink coffee, soda, or red wine pretty regularly should know that rinsing your mouth with water after drinking these beverages is needed, as the resin isn’t as good at resisting stains as veneers.
To recap what we’ve talked about today, this is a fast, simple cosmetic treatment that’s quite routine in our Kennewick, WA dental office.
Bonding is affordable, effective, and also reversible.
Although it must be said, we believe you’ll love the results so much that reversing the procedure won’t even enter your mind. Not only is tooth bonding risk-free, but we know you’ll be too excited to show off your beautifully enhanced smile when you leave!
Ultimately, it’s a decision you will make for yourself, and Dr. Hadley will be here to answer any questions you have to help you feel confident about your choice.
