Do you usually smile with your lips closed? If the appearance of your teeth makes you feel self-conscious, you’re not alone. With dental bonding in Phillips, you can proudly flash a full smile.
This dental treatment uses a composite resin material that matches the color and sheen of your natural teeth. Your dentist applies the cosmetic material to your tooth during the procedure until it dries out. Moreover, they’ll use ultraviolet light to ensure that the resin solidifies and bonds with your tooth enamel.
Since cosmetic dental bonding creates a seal that acts as a barrier between your mouth and bacteria, maintaining high oral hygiene standards is necessary to protect them from staining and keep them longer.
Dental bonding involves a safe and straightforward outpatient procedure with no adverse risks. Moreover, since composite resin is a biocompatible material made of organic and inorganic compounds, it eliminates mercury-related health concerns. The best part about this treatment is that your dentist won’t have to shave down a portion of your tooth before applying the bonding resin.
Unless your teeth require more extensive corrections, cosmetic dental bonding usually takes around 30 to 60 minutes to complete. First, your dentist will roughen your tooth by applying a chemical compound to ensure that the bonding material adheres better to it.
Next, they’ll apply the composite resin in layers before using a UV light to harden it. Since your dentist will only work on the surface of your tooth, the process for applying the bonding material is completely painless.
This relatively non-invasive cosmetic treatment can last for years. Besides restoring dental function, it yields pearly white results that match the color of your existing teeth.
