Many people put off even getting a consultation for cosmetic dental work because they assume that the procedures necessary will be too invasive and time consuming. However, if discoloration, chips, crooked, or misshapen teeth are your issue, you may be a great candidate for a relatively conservative, but very effective procedure called cosmetic dental bonding. Dr. Brent Engelberg, your Northbrook cosmetic dentist, will explain more about the procedure of dental bonding, so you can discern if it might be right for you.
What is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding utilizes composite resin to sculpt teeth and cover over imperfections that will you’re your smile look straighter, whiter, brighter, and practically flawless. The tooth-colored resin is the same material that is used for most fillings these days, and is extremely versatile. Composite resin can be dyed to match the color of your surrounding teeth, and shaped to give you a beautiful, uniform smile. The material can be buffed and polished after it hardens so that the way light reflects off of your new teeth will look natural.
Why Do Patients Love Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding is a terrific option for many patients. Very little tooth structure has to be removed for the resin to stick, so teeth remain strong. Many patients are intrigued by the idea that dental bonding can be performed in just one office visit, and is so comfortable and gentle, anesthesia is usually not even necessary. If alignment issues or gaps are your dental plight, bonding can be a much quicker and easier (and usually much less expensive) route than traditional braces or other orthodontic procedures.
