It’s the most wonderful time of the year with invitations to parties and events for the rest of 2019. However, not everyone is so thrilled about Christmas and New Year, especially if a smile is getting in the way.
The first thing people notice when you walk into a room is your smile. If you don’t have one, you probably aren’t that excited about holiday parties. Twenty years ago, there wasn’t much you could do about your grin in a week or two, but these days you can have a new smile in a single dental appointment with cosmetic dental bonding.
What is Tooth Bonding?
According to your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist, cosmetic dental bonding repairs chips and cracks, and can be used to fill teeth. Made from tooth colored dental resin, the bonding material is matched to the rest of your smile before being applied to the tooth or teeth. Bonding can even be used to make teeth longer or to fill a small space between teeth.
Does Dental Bonding Look Natural?
Thanks to modern dental technology dental resin looks just as natural as your own teeth as it mimics the light the way your teeth do. While bonding is not as strong as porcelain veneers it is not permanent and can be reversed if necessary.
With proper oral hygiene, dental bonding can last a decade or more. Bonding is also less expensive than porcelain veneers and does not require multiple dental visits.
What is Dental Bonding Used For?
Your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach explains that cosmetic dental bonding can be used for a multitude of things including small fillings, inlays, and onlays. Cosmetic dental bonding is also used to restore cracked and chipped teeth and to fill small spaces. Dr. George Sanchez even uses cosmetic dental bonding to make teeth longer.
You really can have a beautiful smile just in time for your next holiday party. Call your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist for more information today.
