Not everyone has a cosmetically perfect smile. In fact, most people have teeth that vary in shade, shape and resiliency. However, some dental bondingvariations are true defects and detract from personal appearance and self-confidence. That's where cosmetic dentistry from East Boca Dental Implant & Specialty Care can help. The team of four highly skilled dentists offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services in their Boca Raton office, including one of the simplest and most effective: cosmetic bonding. Learn the details here.

What is cosmetic bonding?

You also may hear it called direct bonding or composite resin bonding. Whatever the term used, this remarkable treatment repairs defects such as gaps, chips, hairline cracks, overcrowding and more in just one short visit.

Bonding utilizes a resilient and realistic material called composite resin. It combines glass particles and acrylic, closely mimicking the hardness of tooth enamel and the flexibility of inner dentin. Your dentist at East Boca Dental Implant & Specialty Care will examine your flawed teeth to ensure they are healthy and then proceed to recreate their shape with a procedure that's quick, economical and painless.

The bonding process

Your dentist shapes your teeth, smoothing rough edges and other irregularities. Then, he or she uses a mild etching liquid to prepare the tooth surfaces, conditioning them for a superior bond. The resin itself is a tooth-colored putty and is varied in shade to match your natural tooth enamel.

The dentist applies the resin layer by layer, hardening each one with a special curing light. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry calls bonding an additive process, and the method ensures that the repair is exceptionally strong and long-lasting.

After a final sculpting and trimming, the doctor polishes the bonded teeth to a bright finish. Amazingly, repairs are totally seamless; it's impossible to tell where the natural tooth ends and the composite resin begins.

With routine at-home hygiene and semi-annual in-office care, expect your cosmetic bonding to last for five to ten years. Just don't bite into hard foods such as peanut brittle, candy apples or ice, and if you clench or grind your teeth, ask your dentist about a custom-made mouth guard to protect your beautiful smile.
