Although Mother Nature does it best when it comes to teeth, a dental technique known as dental bonding is a close second! This treatment uses a special tooth-colored molding material bonded directly onto your teeth to rebuild damaged teeth or make cosmetic improvements to your smile.
The process is relatively inexpensive and is so natural looking, only we will know the difference! Best of all, a tooth can be bonded during a single visit to our office, and without anesthetic!
Whether or not dental bonding is a good choice for you depends on the size and the part of your tooth that needs to be treated.
With proper home care, bonded teeth can look as good as new for years before they need to be touched up.
It’s hard to pin down exactly what first impressions are made of. It could be the way a person dresses, speaks, or a barely noticeable mannerism. Teeth also have a lot to do with the way people judge us and form opinions about our character.
Studies have shown, for example, that the amount of tooth you show when you smile has a great impact on how old you look. In a more youthful smile, the front teeth are longer and help create a line that comes slightly downward in the middle and up at the corners. In an older smile the front teeth are worn, so the teeth appear straight across. Chips, discoloration, and stains can also age a smile.
Thanks to modern dentistry, bonding can turn back the clock on your smile. Our patients at Daniels Parkway Dental find bonding is an effective way to improve their smile by closing small spaces, masking stains, hiding chips and fractures, and even make a smile look more feminine or masculine.
Traditionally, men are more likely than women to ignore your oral health. An Academy of General Dentistry survey found that 34% of men aged 30-54, and 56% of males aged 55-90 have gum disease. This tendency toward dental neglect may be disappearing as more men are returning to the dentist’s office because of … surprise! … an increased interest in their appearance! In addition, three out of four individuals believe that an unattractive smile can hinder careers. Improving your smile power is an excellent reason to make dental visits a regular thing.
As your dentist, we have many ways to give you a confident, beautiful smile and help you achieve excellent oral health. We’re here to make sure you look and feel your best.
