Many of us deal with those smile imperfections that, although they may not pose a major dental concern, are nonetheless concerning to us. Our smile is after all one of the very first impressions we present to the world, and being confident with our own smile can do wonders for our own self-esteem if nothing else. Cosmetic bonding can handle many of these imperfections and do so much faster than other treatment options, so if you would like to learn more reach out to our Ranier and Lake City, Seattle, WA, cosmetic dentist Dr. Obiora Nkwonta of Lake City & Rainier Dental Center.
Composite resin is what is the restorative material used in dental bonding procedures. The fascinating chemistry behind the components that make up composite resin allows it to be a very versatile material that can repair and improve our teeth in a number of ways.
It can be made to match the color of our teeth and is applied in very thin layers and each of these is hardened with a special light. Our dentist builds up the resin in this way until there is enough structure to give our tooth its shape. It is finally polished and trimmed until it matches the rest of our smile's natural appearance. One of the absolute best parts about bonding is that it can often be performed in a single visit.
With cosmetic bonding, our dentist can make our teeth more uniform in size and in shape, and can even address slightly crooked teeth and small gaps between them. The final result is a smile free of these imperfections without having to undergo the waiting and expense of other restorations.
