Maybe you have a wedding or an important meeting come up. You have a minor flaw with your smile that you’d love to have corrected before then. But you’re worried that the procedure will take too long. So instead you trudge along to your event, and just hope that no one notices the flaw in your smile. Maybe you even cover your smile with your hand when you laugh.
But you may be surprised that they are options available in cosmetic dentistry that don’t take very long at all, and can actually be accomplished with a single dental appointment. At Eugene Family Dental in Eugene, OR, we offer tooth bonding for when you need to look great in a hurry, without any delays or complications.
Tooth bonding is one of the fastest cosmetic dentistry procedures available. But it’s not just quick; it’s also trusted by thousands of dentists and patients every year. Tooth bonding involves using composite resin to help restore your teeth’s appearance. Composite resin is applied to your teeth while it is soft and spreadable; it is then carefully shaped by our top-notch team.
Bonding is an excellent option for patients who don’t have time for porcelain veneers, or are just looking for a less expensive option than veneers. Bonding does not require any preparation of your teeth, or the removal of any enamel. Because of this, it is actually a completely reversible cosmetic procedure.
Bonding is an ideal solution for many minor cosmetic flaws in your smile. It can be used to fix chips, cracks, discolored teeth, misshapen teeth, or even to fill small gaps in your teeth. Best of all, the entire procedure can completed in as little as an hour. That allows you to walk in on your lunch break and then leave with a great new smile.
We begin any bonding procedure with a complete examination of your teeth. We do this to ensure your teeth are healthy enough to receive the composite resin. We then carefully match the composite resin to the exact color of your natural teeth; this ensures that procedure results in a completely natural looking smile.
After brushing on a bonding solution, we place the resin onto your teeth. We then shape it so it will give you the results you desire. We then use a light which helps to harden the material into place; we then further shape the resin and carefully polish it. Once we’ve created an amazing smile for you, we finish hardening the resin into place.
Dental bonds can last several years with the proper care; on occasion certain hard foods may damage them during the chewing process. Composite resin is not as strong as your natural teeth, but if you have any issues with the bond we can easily repair it or replace it.
Are you ready to have a smile that you can love? Dental bonding is a great and inexpensive choice for minor cosmetic dental work. For more information, contact our office. At Eugene Family Dental, we’re proud to serve the residents of Eugene, OR. Make an appointment by calling us at 458-205-5189.
