A chipped tooth can be an unattractive distraction from the beauty of your smile—especially if it sits right in the front of your mouth. Thankfully, Aesthetic & Family Dentistry has a dentist in Washington DC that offers the services you need to improve those small imperfections in your smile. For instance, if you’d like to cover flaws that have impacted the appearance of your teeth or even length your smile, consider getting cosmetic bonding from Dr. Yelena Obholz.
What do I need to know about cosmetic bonding?
Cosmetic bonding is the application of a composite resin to repair flaws in your smile. This cosmetic procedure can be used to repair teeth that are decayed, chipped, discolored, and even make your teeth look longer all while matching the same shade of your natural teeth. Sometimes, dental bonding is used as a cosmetic alternative to fillings. Sometimes, your cosmetic dentist in Washington DC may recommend cosmetic bonding to protect a portion of a tooth root that has been exposed from gum recession.
What can I expect during the bonding process?
The beginning of every cosmetic process all starts with a consultation with Dr. Obholz. By communicating openly with your cosmetic dentist, we can work with you to develop the best dental plan to fit the structure of your face and smile. If cosmetic bonding is the right treatment for you, you’re in luck! Cosmetic bonding is one of the easiest, effective treatments in dentistry.
You can improve your smile with bonding in a single visit. Dr. Obholz will first use a shade guide to match the composite resin to the exact color of your natural teeth. From there, your cosmetic dentist will gently remove a thin layer of your surface tooth. This leaves the outer layer of your tooth more susceptible to bonding with the composite resin. It helps for the cosmetic bonding to last for years to come. Then, the tooth will then be coated with a light conditioning liquid to help the bond adhere.
After your natural teeth have been prepared to receive the composite resin, your dentist will apply the tooth-colored dental materials and mold it to create your new and improved tooth. After the bonding has been solidified, the process will be completed with a natural looking polish.
How can cosmetic bonding help me?
Bonding is one of the easiest and least invasive cosmetic dental procedures available to patients. IF you’ve struggled to feel confident in your smile, you can gain that reassurance in your teeth in a single dental appointment and at a low cost! Not only is the price a great reason to move forward with your interest in cosmetic bonding, but a lot of patients are ecstatic about their results. When you smile, people won’t be able to tell the difference between your natural teeth and your applied bonding.
