If you suffer from chips, cracks, spacing issues, and other dental issues, you may want to consider affordable dental bonding as offered by Dr. Brianne Fratantonio and the team at Chesterland Family Dental Care. Individuals in Chesterland, OH, and surrounding areas have been going into Chesterland Family Dental Care for their cosmetic dental bonding needs. Dental bonding is a procedure that involves the use of a specially crafted bonding material that is made to mimic natural tooth enamel. It is color-matched and then applied to a patient’s teeth to cover imperfections. And because of its pliability, it can be perfectly molded to the tooth for a truly natural appearance.
Dental bonding is great for patients looking to improve their smile without committing to more expensive or cumbersome dental treatments. Because dental bonding involves a process that allows your dentist to correct several different forms of cosmetic issues (stains, chips, cracks, etc.) using a specially crafted dental resin, it is pretty affordable. Let us look at some of the benefits offered by dental bonding.
Your dentist will place the dental resin material used for this procedure directly over your existing coating of natural enamel. The preparation for this is minimal and non-invasive. Your dentist will need to get the tooth’s surface ready for the bonding material by applying a roughing gel to the tooth and then coating it with a conditioning treatment to help the bonding material stick to the tooth.
Working together with your dentist, they will pick a shade of dental resin which will best match the shade of your surrounding natural teeth. Once the resin is applied, it will be quickly molded into a shape that fits how your tooth would look without the bonding. Once the material is dried and the bonding completed using a special UV light, the newly bonded tooth will be polished and buffed to provide a perfectly natural appearance.
Among regular and cosmetic dental work available to patients, dental bonding is one of the more simple and most affordable options available. Part of this is due to the simple nature of the procedure and the fact it can be completed in a single office visit, whereas other procedures (such as crowns or veneers) will require multiple appointments. Dental bonding can also save you money that would otherwise go into orthodontic work. That is because dental bonding is a perfect solution for closing unattractive gaps in your smile. And, unless your dentist is using bonding material to fill a cavity, no form of anesthetic is required.
If you are ready to renew your smile and upgrade to the smile you know you deserve, reach out to Dr. Brianne Fratantonio and her team at Chesterland Family Dental Care in Chesterland, OH, to ask about dental bonding. To schedule an appointment, please call (440) 491-4001.
