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.

Just one of many tools

Some cosmetic dental problems are easier to fix than others. Surface stains and discolorations that develop from drinking too much dental bondingcoffee, tea, or red wine over time can be removed with professional teeth whitening treatments, making the teeth whiter and brighter than before. In addition to staining, chips, cracks, small gaps, sizing issues, and cavities are among the most common cosmetic and general dentistry problems. The dentists at East Boca Dental Implant & Specialty Care in Boca Raton, FL offer cosmetic bonding treatments for common smile problems, making the teeth look better than before, without conspicuous signs of extensive dental work.

Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry in Boca Raton, FL

Cosmetic dental repairs can be seen as both an art and a science because getting the teeth to look as natural as possible is as important for patients as restoring the strength and health of their smile. Composite resin can be used to fill cavities and fix small issues with your smile. In the past, fixing chipped or uneven teeth sometimes resulted in bulky or less than natural looking results. Tooth (enamel) colored composite resin is a combination of plastic and glass that can be molded to match the texture and hue of a natural tooth.

Dental bonding is one of the most affordable and non-invasive cosmetic treatments available and can be completed in as little as a single visit to the dentist. Cracks, chips, smaller spaces, and uneven teeth can be repaired with bonding, without altering the characteristics that make a smile unique. Bonding can also be used to treat cavities, helping to restore the look and function of your teeth.
