Sometimes a few small improvements are all it takes to completely makeover and transform a dull or damaged smile. After all, a few minorSmile cosmetic improvements to fix chipped, stained, or uneven teeth may be exactly what you need to get the smile you want! Here at Rochester Dental in Troy, MI, your cosmetic dentists, Dr. William Carmody and Dr. Debra Halse, offer dental bonding to fix the minor flaws in your teeth.

 

How Dental Bonding Works

Even with the best of care, your teeth are still susceptible to damage from trauma from accidents, falls, sports injuries, or even from biting down while eating a hard piece of candy or food. Or maybe your teeth are not as white as they used to be or as you'd like them to be. You may brush and floss every day, but over time everything from your diet to the normal aging process will take a toll and slowly dull your teeth over time.

Cosmetic bonding has a few things in common with dental veneers, but there are several key differences. Veneers are usually made from porcelain, are designed from tooth molds, and prepared in a lab, a process that requires several visits to the dentist's office. Bonding, on the other hand, uses composite resin (dental plastic) that is applied directly onto the tooth, a process that only requires one appointment to our Troy office. The resin is cured (dried) with a laser or UV light, providing almost instant results.

While bonding typically doesn't last as long as veneers, a typical cosmetic bonding treatment can last from four to eight years depending on the person.

Are you wondering whether or not dental bonding could be right for you?Dental bonding

If you want to get cosmetic dentistry but are looking for an easy, inexpensive way to alter your smile then you may just want to consider getting dental bonding. Our Troy, MI, cosmetic dentists Dr. William Carmody and Dr. Debra Halsey are here to tell you a little bit about what to expect if you get this aesthetic dentistry procedure.

What is dental bonding?

Bonding is probably the simplest cosmetic treatment you can offer your smile. By just applying a little bit of tooth-colored moldable resin over these flaws we can hide them completely and improve the shape or color of one or more teeth. Since bonding is completely non-invasive it won’t be able to handle more serious defects but it can be a great option for someone dealing with mild-to-moderate flaws such as:

  • Chips and cracks
  • Discolorations and stubborn stains
  • Worn, short or asymmetrical teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

What are the benefits of getting dental bonding?

When people think about getting cosmetic dentistry they often worry that it could be rather invasive, uncomfortable or take up a lot of time in the dentist’s chair, but our Troy, MI, dentist is here to tell you that bonding is actually the easiest treatment you could choose to improve your smile.

It’s completely non-invasive. The only thing that we will have to do is apply the bonding resin, mold it over these problem areas and harden it into place.

Bonding is also the least expensive cosmetic treatment you can choose. We know that patients want to be able to improve their smiles but worry about the cost, but when you get dental bonding you won’t have to worry about this. Improving your smile shouldn’t break the bank.
