Jenkintown PA Dental Bondings
Montgomery County Pennsylvania Cosmetic Dentist
Dental bonding is an alternative to veneers, but still can correct the appearance of your smile. Tooth-colored composite resin is used to repair minor cosmetic imperfections to your teeth. Just like veneers, our Jenkintown cosmetic dentists can:
- Fill gaps between teeth
- Fix chipped teeth
- Cover deep stains
Most of the time the bonding procedure is done in just one office visit and can give you the appearance that you want, however it is important to keep in mind that dental bonding is not as durable as veneers or crowns. Typically, dental bonding will last 3 to 5 years before needing repair. That is why it is important to weigh your options when it comes to enhancing your smile.
What Is Involved In The Process Of Dental Bonding in Jenkintown?
Just like in the application of veneers, the procedure is very similar. First, the area is lightly etched and a bonding liquid is applied. Second, the composite resin is applied to the area in layers until the desired thickness is achieved. Next, the resin is trimmed to the desired shape. Finally, it is buffed and polished for the natural look that is virtually undetectable.
Again, dental bonding is a cost-effective alternative to veneers. It is meant for small cosmetic changes and not meant to be a replacement for such things like a crown. In order to keep your dental bonding in shape it is highly recommended that you avoid chewing any hard food as it can easily damage the dental bonds.
