Do you want to spend this summer soaking up every chance you get to enjoy time with your family and friends? Whether your idea of a great summer vacation means catching waves at the beach or fireflies in the backyard, roasting s’mores over a campfire or hotdogs on your grill, chances are the best part of summer will simply be making memories with those you love. If you want to enjoy the time you’ll share and the pictures that will come from it, though, make sure your smile is ready! Cosmetic bonding can help get you closer to your dream smile.
What Can Bonding Do for You?
Cosmetic bonding can help address a number of imperfections, including minor alignment issues, permanent staining, or concerns with the size or shape of some of your teeth. In fact, much like porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding provides a rather comprehensive way to improve the smile’s overall appearance.
If you have jagged edges due to nighttime teeth grinding, disproportionately large or misshapen teeth, or even gaps between a few of them, cosmetic bonding can help.
Perhaps best of all, bonding is a fast and affordable way to correct these and other esthetic concerns.
In fact, for most patients, bonding can be completed in less than an hour, making it one of the fastest cosmetic treatments available.
Plus, the material used is durable. In fact, it’s also used for restorative dental fillings, to help protect teeth made fragile by cavities or other dental problems.
To determine if bonding is the right solution for your smile, talk to your dentist about your desires behind seeking treatment, and also your lifestyle. Since the resin is not as stain-resistant as porcelain, it is not an ideal choice for those who smoke or use other tobacco or staining products. If you are a frequent coffee or red wine drinker, you might also prefer the longevity and stain resistance that porcelain veneers offer.
