Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment in which a dentist applies a resin-like substance to teeth for aesthetic enhancement. This can be used to fill gaps or chips or whiten teeth. Cosmetic dental treatment has the potential to improve your entire lifestyle. The dental professionals at Owings Mills Dental Care in Owings Mills, MD describe the benefits of cosmetic dentistry treatment, and teeth bonding.
Enhance your smile
Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment, which means its goal is to enhance your smile. You can discuss your aesthetic goals during a consultation with your dentist to determine if tooth bonding is the best treatment for you. Dentists have developed bonding so that its appearance is similar to your regular teeth. This way, you can achieve a beautiful and natural-looking smile with this treatment. Tooth bonding can fill gaps between teeth, whiten teeth, and repair chipped teeth. When your smile is looking its best, it can boost your confidence. With improved self-esteem, you can approach each day with enthusiasm and enrich your entire lifestyle.
Safe for your teeth
The resin-like material of tooth bonding secures your teeth but does not damage your tooth enamel during the application process. The resin dries and adheres to your teeth so that it remains in place while you continue eating and drinking as you normally would.
Some cosmetic treatments require your dentist to shave some of your tooth enamel in order to secure the treatment to your teeth, but bonding does not. Some patients experience slight tooth sensitivity when bonding is first applied to teeth, but these symptoms should fade after a few days.
Requires less commitment
Tooth bonding is not a permanent cosmetic dental solution. Bonding will remain in place over your teeth for three to ten years. This makes bonding an affordable cosmetic treatment option compared to more permanent treatments such as porcelain veneers.
Bonding may not be permanent, but it allows you to enjoy the benefits of cosmetic dental enhancement for several years. During this time, you can evaluate your cosmetic goals with your dentist and determine whether further cosmetic treatment is right for you.
