Every patient deserves to benefit from a smile that looks healthy and attractive. Unfortunately, our teeth work very hard during our lifetime and this means that despite our efforts to look after them, damage and discoloration is still extremely common. Other cosmetic changes, such as gaps between our teeth, occur as a result of habits like thumb-sucking or are simply down to genetics.
Thankfully, it is now easier to change and improve our smile than ever before. There are a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions that can enable us to alter those elements of our smile that cause us the most concern. Composite bonding is just one of many cosmetic procedures that we can now offer patients performed here at our modern, comfortable dentistry offices in Marietta, GA.
Composite bonding is a lesser-known but very effective form of cosmetic dentistry that can transform the appearance of your smile. Composite bonding does this in various ways. It can:
Repair cracks, chips, and other superficial damage
Improve the color of teeth
Add thickness to particularly thin teeth
Close small gaps between the teeth
Make teeth across your smile seem more uniform in height
The process involves a special bonding agent being placed over the top of the natural enamel of your teeth, then is molded in such a way that any imperfections are covered. If the aim of your treatment is to make your teeth look more consistent across the breadth of your smile, the composite will be applied in such a way to do this. This takes skill and experience of the process in order to achieve the best result, something that our cosmetic dentists have in abundance. Once we and you are satisfied with the appearance of your new and improved smile, the composite is set using a special light. This hardens it so that it is permanently secured to your teeth. We will then polish your teeth to a high shine before you leave with your new and improved smile!
So, why should you opt for composite bonding over other potentially viable solutions, such as dental veneers? There are numerous advantages to selecting composite bonding for your smile transformation. These include:
Have your treatment completed in just one visit. Porcelain veneers usually require at least two visits to our offices, whereas composite bonding can normally be carried out and completed in just one appointment.
Minimally-invasive. While the process to receive veneers is minimally-invasive, that for composite bonding is even more so. This is because virtually no natural tooth enamel needs to be removed for the composite to be applied and molded.
Composite resin is strong and durable, and most patients find that they can go a fairly long time before any maintenance or replacement is required.
If and when maintenance and/or repairs are needed, they can be done simply and quickly. There is no need to remove the previous composite resin in order to carry out the necessary work.
Enjoy a smile that is improved subtly and looks and feels completely natural.
