If flashing a beautiful smile is important to you, Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry in Royal Oak can help. You might mistakenly assume that cosmetic dentistry is far too pricey or takes too many visits to pursue.
Sure, a complete mouth reconstruction can be a significant investment and time commitment. Before you give up on improving your smile, however, think about a less celebrated but extremely effective and cost-effective cosmetic dental remedy: dental bonding.
Dental bonding has a wide range of applications for unsightly teeth. Bonding can repair a tooth that is damaged, chipped, short, or discolored. It can can also repair teeth that have gaps in between them.
How does the dental bonding procedure work?
First, your tooth will be slightly (but painlessly) roughed up to help the resin adhere. Your dentist will use a shade guide to know the perfect color of composite to match the existing teeth. Applying a liquid composite resin on the tooth, layer by layer, they will carefully shape and polish it before it hardens. Then, the dentist will cover the tooth with a condition liquid that helps with adhesion.
Once the resin is bonded, it is further molded to the perfect shape for your bite and appearance. A laser helps quickly bond the resin in place as it hardens. Further shaping and polishing, if necessary, complete the procedure. The result is a beautiful smile.
Bonding is a simple and cost-effective method for perfecting your smile and is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer at Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry in Royal Oak. Schedule an appointment today.
