Your smile is the first thing that most people see when they meet you, but unfortunately your teeth can be subjected to a lot of wear and tear over the course of a lifetime! Whether it’s from eating hard foods, consuming hot drinks, or being subjected to an accidental impact – your teeth have probably accumulated some cracks and chips over the years. The good news is that cosmetic bonding at Smiles For Life is a great way to fix this minor damage in a way that leaves your mouth looking great!
Cosmetic Bonding Procedure
When performing the cosmetic bonding procedure on your teeth, we use a very hard dental resin that can be matched to the natural color of your teeth and can be applied to very specific areas of damage. The first step with a cosmetic bonding procedure will involve applying a mild etching solution to the area that needs to be repaired. The etching solution will seep into the enamel of your tooth just enough to slightly roughen its surface. The roughness of this area will allow the dental resin to adhere to it for a secure bond. Once the resin has hardened, we will sculpt it to conform to the overall shape of the tooth and then polish it for a natural appearance.
Cosmetic bonding has the advantage being a quick procedure that produces extremely durable results! The entire bonding procedure takes only an hour or two to complete during a single visit to the Smiles For Life office. Yet, with proper care, you can expect this form of restoration to last up to 7 years!
