Sacramento dentist describes teeth bonding as a cosmetic approach to enhancing the smile
Cosmetic treatments are at the forefront of the offerings available with Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams in Sacramento. Cosmetic dentistry has grown in popularity as patients in the community are beginning to realize how helpful it is in addressing imperfections and how affordable it can be. Aesthetic treatments are often much more natural-looking than they used to be, making it a more desirable solution to a tired, dull, or imperfect smile.
Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams work closely with patients to find ways to enhance the natural smile, and for many, it can be achieved with cosmetic bonding. Bonding, which may be called dental bonding or composite resin bonding, is a quick and easy way to enhance the teeth. This clay-like substance is applied to the teeth and formed into the appropriate shape onto the surface of the tooth. It is then filed down and polished so that it has the same sheen as the natural tooth enamel for seamless integration. It is the same color as the natural tooth enamel, so it is difficult to discern from the structure of the tooth – making it completely aesthetic.
Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams of Sacramento encourage patients to consider dental bonding for enhancing their smiles. It can be a great alternative to porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are made of ceramic. They are thin shells that are fabricated to bond over the front of a tooth to disguise imperfections. However, they can take several weeks to complete and require the removal of natural tooth structure to accomplish the results. Dental bonding can be done in just one appointment with our team of professionals. It is also more affordable and easier to alter and replace than a traditional veneer.
Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams of Sacramento can use dental bonding in many situations, and can utilize it for covering up teeth that are spaced apart, misaligned, permanently stained, broken, or unusually shaped. This same material can be used in treating teeth with cavities and is a safer alternative than metal fillings commonly used in other dental practices.
