It is nice when there are tooth restoration options that also keep cosmetics in mind. That is exactly what we have here at All Coast Dental of Pacific Beach, CA when we offer our patients dental bonding. Dental bonding is a dental procedure used to correct damage and imperfections while improving upon one’s smile aesthetics at the same time.
When there is a crack or chip in a tooth, for safety, functionality, and for the sake of a nice-looking smile, dental bonding is used to smooth over the chip or crack and make the tooth appear as good as new. Dental bonding can also be used for gaps and misaligned teeth. In addition, bonding can be used to whiten teeth for a long time.
To apply dental bonding, your dentist will etch the surface of your tooth. This is to create tiny grooves that the composite resin will bond with better. The composite resin chosen will match your tooth color so that it blends in with your smile and the restoration is not noticeable. The resin will be shaped over the imperfection or painted over the surface of the teeth for whitening. A light is used to harden the resin which is polished afterwards. Polishing the tooth makes it shine like a normal tooth. In one simple appointment without major surgery or dental work, your smile is fixed.
If you are concerned about your smile or want a smile upgrade, schedule an appointment for a dental bonding consultation. To schedule, call All Coast Dental of Pacific Beach, CA at (858) 270-4904 or visit our website, www.allcoastdental.net.
