A gorgeous gown, a blinding ring, the happy couple….and a discolored tooth? The last thing a bride wants to see on her special day is flawed wedding photos. This is supposed to be a day to remember forever, but your insecurities about your smile are stopping you from making this a night for you to remember. Luckily, you have Exceptional Smiles by Gregory M. Solich to fall back on for all your dental needs—especially cosmetically. Our dentists are more than ready to bring your smile and confidence to the next level with cosmetic bonding in Colorado Springs.
What is cosmetic bonding?
Cosmetic dental bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) used to repair flaws in your smile. This cosmetic procedure can be used to repair teeth that are decayed, chipped, discolored, and even make your teeth look longer. Sometimes, dental bonding is used as a cosmetic alternative to fillings. In some situations, bonding can be used to protect a portion of a tooth root that has been exposed because of gum recession.
What is the procedure like?
The beginning of every cosmetic process all starts with a consultation with Dr. Solich or Dr. Orban. By communicating openly with our dentists, we can develop the best smile transformation plan to fit you specifically. If cosmetic bonding is the right treatment for you, you’re in luck! Cosmetic bonding is one of the quickest treatments available in cosmetic dentistry! Imagine wanting to hide your wedding photos from your kids in the future—that’s embarrassing! Not only should you be proud of that moment in your life, but have a lot of happy, healthy smiles to accompany it.
This procedure can be completed in one dental visit. Your dentist in Colorado Springs will first use a shade guide to select the composite resin that matches your natural tooth color. From there, our cosmetic dentist will gently etch the surface of your natural teeth to create a long-lasting bonding experience. The tooth will then be coated with a light conditioning liquid to help the bond adhere.
When the tooth is prepared, your dentist will apply the tooth-colored resin and mold it to the improved, smooth shape. Your dentist will then harden the resin with an ultraviolet light or laser. After the dental materials have hardened, he will then shape and trim it more, finishing with a polish. If you’ve ever had acrylic nails applied before, or watched someone for that matter, the process is very similar with the same objective—to protect your natural nail (tooth).
How does cosmetic bonding help patients?
Bonding is one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures available. You have the option to fix the flaws that have made you feel less than you really are for an affordable price! Not only is the price a great reason to move forward with your interest, but a lot of patients are ecstatic about their results because the tooth-colored resin blends so well with their natural teeth. Your new smile can last you at least ten years with proper dental care!
