Repair Damaged Teeth Quickly and Affordably with Tooth Bonding

Tooth BondingWhen you have a newly damaged tooth, you want it to be repaired immediately. When you have oddly shaped or jagged teeth, you want to finally fix the smile that has always made you self-conscious. Many cosmetic dentistry solutions take more than one visit to your Burke, VA, dentist to complete. While these long-lasting, natural-looking solutions are worth the wait, sometimes patients just don’t have the time to be patient. Tooth bonding, however, makes it possible to get fast, economical tooth repairs since the procedure can often be completed in just one visit to LifeTime Smiles.

The Versatility of Cosmetic Tooth Bonding

While speed is one of the most appealing elements of a tooth bonding repair, the beautiful simplicity and effectiveness of this cosmetic dentistry solution cannot be overlooked. Minimally invasive and painless, cosmetic tooth bonding is also a versatile smile makeover solution.

Bonding is often used to repair problems such as:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Decay
  • Discoloration
  • Fractures
  • Gaps
  • Odd shapes

Tooth bonding is simpler than porcelain veneers or dental crowns, but no less effective. The goal in every tooth bonding repair is to sculpt a tooth back into a natural-looking shape, bulk, and color. The repair should be aesthetically pleasing as well as functional.

Above all, tooth bonding makes it possible for people who have long been dissatisfied with the appearance of their teeth to get an amazing smile makeover solution. Uneven teeth, short teeth, gapped teeth – any of these complaints and more can be repaired with cosmetic tooth bonding which is capable of lengthening teeth, protecting teeth that have developed gum recession, and working as an alternative to silver amalgam fillings.

How Tooth Bonding Is Applied

The process of cosmetic tooth bonding, on average, takes 30 minutes to one hour per tooth to complete. There are several steps for your Burke cosmetic dentist to carry out during this cosmetic dentistry repair:

  • Prep the tooth by sanding then conditioning the surface.
  • Apply a tooth-colored resin to the problem tooth or teeth to match the shade of natural teeth.
  • Shape the tooth after curing the resin and bond it to the tooth with a special light.
  • Polish the tooth so it looks clean and natural.

Are You a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Tooth Bonding?

If you are desperate to have your damaged tooth or unsightly teeth repaired, tooth bonding can provide a speedy solution. There are many cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures that may be better options for your smile – such as Invisalign or Lumineers – but cosmetic tooth bonding is the preferred choice for many patients.

Perhaps you have a high-profile position that requires you to be in front of people or cameras daily. You need your teeth fixed, stat. Maybe you’re a busy stay-at-home parent who is unable to schedule time for multiple visits to the dentist. Whatever your position professionally, socially, or otherwise, you want your smile to look good, and you want to be confident in your appearance. Cosmetic tooth bonding provides a fast, solid solution that can last up to 10 years.

You aren’t settling for the “cheap” solution by opting for tooth bonding. For many patients, this is the smart solution, the best solution. Each tooth bonding procedure, after all, is like a miniature sculpture crafted by your Burke cosmetic dentist. Bonding is not one-size-fits-all. This is a highly individualized and customized dental repair. It’s a perk that bonding is also extremely affordable.
