Cosmetic Bonding for Appealing Smiles in Ft. Collins

September 24, 2013

cosmetic bondingMany people visit their dentist to learn more about the options they have to improve the appearance of their smile. If you have some minor smile concerns and don’t want to commit to a lot of dental work, cosmetic bonding may be a great choice to help improve the appearance of your smile.

Cosmetic bonding is a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure that is best used when you have one or a few teeth that need attention. If you have a tooth or a few teeth that are chipped, cracked or slightly misaligned, this can be a great alternative to porcelain veneers. Your dentist will apply composite resin to your tooth that has been carefully color matched to the rest of your teeth. The resin will be shaped into place and then hardened with a special curing light. Your dentist will complete the procedure by sculpting and polishing your tooth.

While this is a quick and simple method to improve the appearance of your smile, it’s not the longest-lasting. Usually it only lasts five to 10 years, provided you’re taking proper care of your smile. Also, the resin won’t discolor the same as your natural tooth, so you may need teeth whitening to keep the color of your smile consistent. Despite these slight drawbacks, cosmetic bonding is still a great smile solution that can be the right choice for your smile. Call your dentist to learn more and see if this is the right solution for your smile.
