How Dental Bonding for Gaps Improves Your Smile
You are not alone if you dream of that those dazzling, perfectly shaped pearly whites you can display with boldness. While we all yearn for a killer smile, the reality is that we are not all blessed with a naturally gorgeous grin. As a matter of fact, being born with a perfect smile borders the impossible.
Some people have discolored, chipped, decayed, lost, or damaged teeth, while others have spaces in their teeth. Fortunately, for those with gaps, dental bonding offered by Adams Dental Associates in Sacramento, California, can restore your smile.
What is dental bonding?
During this treatment, Dr. Kosta Adams places a composite resin material on the surface of the teeth. Once shaped and polished, the tooth-colored resin material closely resembles your natural teeth—working similar to veneers—although at a fraction of the price.
Dental bonding aims to improve the appearance and function of the teeth. This treatment also fixes gaps in your smile too. Since dental bonding is a minimally invasive procedure, it takes about 30 minutes to one hour. The quick turnaround for the procedure makes it ideal for everyone, including those hard-pressed for time.
What to expect from the dental bonding procedure
The first step in dental bonding is preparing your teeth. Here, Dr. Adams etches out the outer surface of your teeth so that the resin material can attach firmly. Then, a conditioning liquid is applied, after which your dentist applies the resin material in layers to fill up your gaps. Finally, Dr. Adams uses a special light to harden the resin, which is then shaped, trimmed and polished to match your natural teeth.
Why choose dental bonding?
American Dental Association estimates that about 25% of Americans have gaps in their mouth. Luckily, Americans who are unhappy with their “gappy” smile can turn to dental bonding and reap the below benefits in return:
- Dental bonding is affordable compared to veneers.
- It’s versatile, fixing multiple teeth imperfections, including cracked, oddly-shaped, damaged, and stained teeth.
- It’s fast
- Easy to maintain.
Besides, dental bonding is long-lasting. With proper care, cosmetic bonding can last up to 10 years!
