One of the most popular procedures we offer is cosmetic dental bonding. This minimally invasive treatment can address myriad concerns with natural-looking and long-lasting results. Teeth can be repaired and restored by applying a composite resin to the surface, disguising aesthetic issues, and rehabilitating damage and decay. Dr. Laskis performs this procedure for patients who want a simple, quick solution and prefer not to use porcelain veneers or a dental crown.
Cosmetic bonding can be a very effective solution for a number of concerns, but it is not right for everyone. Our experienced team will evaluate your needs and discuss your desired outcome to determine the best approach for you. We will explain all your available options and work together to find the ideal way forward.
What types of concerns can dental bonding treat?
As a versatile and minimally invasive treatment, cosmetic dental bonding can improve and restore a wide range of concerns, both aesthetic and functional in nature. Bonding can help strengthen teeth and rejuvenate the appearance of the smile, correcting irregularities, repairing damage, and brightening teeth. Depending on your unique requirements, dental bonding can:
- Reshape, restore, and reinforce damaged teeth
- Disguise stains and discoloration
- Conserve natural tooth structure while enhancing cosmetic appearance
- Fill in minor gaps between teeth
If your smile has more significant dental concerns, we can recommend a more effective technique that offers durable results and a beautiful outcome. In some cases, a dental crown or porcelain veneer may be recommended or, if gaps or crowding are an issue, Invisalign® may be an option. While we are dedicated to delivering professional guidance and advice, we will leave the final decision of what to do up to you.
Why Get Teeth Bonding?
Many patients coming to our Fountain Hills, Arizona, office know little about cosmetic dentistry. We provide information about our procedures so you can make an informed decision that benefits your dental health. Dental bonding can make your smile look nicer. It treats imperfections in your teeth and creates a better appearance.
If you want a more uniform appearance for your teeth, bonding may be the right answer. The procedure is often less expensive than other cosmetic dental options, which may be a factor in your decision. You do not need to prepare in advance for the bonding, either, though if you are getting a decayed tooth bonded, that may take some additional prep time for your dentist.
Are There Any Risks When You Get Teeth Bonding?
This is a question we frequently hear from Rio Verde, Arizona-area patients, and they ask it about all the cosmetic dentistry procedures we perform. Are you a nail biter or an ice chewer? You will need to give those things up to preserve the new appearance of your teeth. Bonded teeth are strong, but you can chip them if you do sudden, jerky movements, such as biting down hard. Maintaining excellent oral health habits can extend the life of your newly bonded teeth.
How does cosmetic dental bonding work?
Your care, comfort, and outcome are our highest priorities, and we utilize the most advanced techniques and technology available to ensure the best possible result. One of the many benefits of dental bonding is that it does not require the use of molds or impressions, nor will an anesthetic typically be necessary.
To begin, the tooth or teeth will be cleaned and prepared, then the bonding resin will be applied in several layers. Dr. Laskis will then shape the composite to achieve the most aesthetically appealing effect. A special curing light will be applied to harden the material, and the finished product will be polished for a natural-looking outcome that blends in impeccably with your surrounding teeth.
Cosmetic bonding uses a durable material to provide a strong and lasting result, but patients may need to have the restoration “touched-up” every five to 10 years, depending on your oral care habits and lifestyle. We can provide suggestions on how to preserve your bonding as long as possible and keep your smile beautiful for life.
