Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Dental Bonding Benefits
Patients looking for a conservative alternative to porcelain veneers will be interested in learning more about cosmetic dental bonding. Using composite resin material, Dr. Mark Landau will transform the look of damaged or esthetically displeasing smiles. Composite resin is a tooth-colored material that can be molded to fill in gaps, cover cracks, fix chips, and change the shape of teeth.
Cosmetic dental bonding is a fairly simple procedure. First, teeth are prepared with an etching solution that makes the surface of the tooth better able to bond with the composite resin material. The composite resin is then applied to the tooth and shaped, and a curing light is used to facilitate bonding and hardening of the resin. More layers of cosmetic dental bonding material can be applied and cured until the desired results are achieved.
Candidates for cosmetic dental bonding are those with small gaps between teeth or patients with small chips or cracks. Cosmetic dental bonding is also used to repair teeth that have been worn from teeth grinding, tooth decay, and staining. For larger repairs, though, Dr. Landau will most likely recommend porcelain veneers or crowns.
The advantages of cosmetic dental bonding include:
- Less discomfort
- Long lasting
Cosmetic dental bonding can help to greatly improve your smile’s appearance, making it look straighter and whiter.
Dr. Landau lectures on cosmetic dental bonding to dentists around the country. He does this because he believes in the power of this cosmetic dentistry procedure, and he’s known for achieving artistic results with cosmetic dental bonding. With cosmetic dental bonding, Dr. Landau can cover a number of smile imperfections, and this specific cosmetic procedure is extremely versatile, offering help for those suffering with a broad array of dental issues.
Dr. Landau may mingle cosmetic dental bonding with other procedures such as teeth whitening and crown lengthening for a complete smile makeover and full-mouth reconstruction.
