A smile is very important to a person’s confidence and self-esteem. Small dental imperfections can make a big difference. Fortunately, there is a simple and affordable restoration option for many dental imperfections. Dental bonding is able to improve the look of many issues and is something we offer here at Bishop & Bishop Dental in Silver Spring, MD.
Dental bonding is the process of using a composite resin to smooth over imperfections. The resin may be chosen in the shade that matches your tooth so that the improvement is not noticeable in your smile. In the case of whitening purposes, the resin will be chosen in a shade that is brighter than your current shade. The restoration will blend in with the rest of your teeth. For cracks, chips, misaligned teeth, gaps, and more, the resin is smoothed over the imperfection to complete a more aesthetically-pleasing look. When the resin is shaped accordingly, a curing light is used to harden the resin. The tooth is then polished so that it shines like natural teeth. Preparation for the tooth is minimal, light etching is all that is needed.
With great dental care, dental bonding can last for over ten years. To set up an appointment at Bishop & Bishop Dental of Silver Spring, MD, call our office at (301) 608-9270 or visit our website, www.bishopdental.com.
