Improve the appearance of your teeth with composite teeth bonding in Twin Falls
While dental bonding was designed to fill cavities in your teeth, a skilled dentist can improve the aesthetics of your smile with this malleable, tooth-colored material. Dental bonding is easy to shape, fast to harden, and durable enough to withstand the typical bite force in your mouth. Dr. Cress is happy to share his composite teeth bonding technique for patients in the Twin Falls area who are unhappy with the look of their smile.
How composite bonding can improve your teeth
While a professional teeth whitening can address many stains that dull the shine of your teeth, certain stains deep in your tooth or discoloration caused by weakened enamel won’t respond to bleaching agents. Dental bonding can disguise stubborn staining, as well as treat issues such as tooth gaps, chips, or uneven and misshapen teeth.
Dental bonding is a cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers that is easily reversible and doesn’t require removing any of your existing tooth structure. Because dental bonding is performed in-office without the use of a dental lab, it can improve your smile in a single appointment, so you can prepare for special events or photoshoots even if you’re in a time crunch.
What to expect during your procedure
Your appointment time will vary depending on the number of teeth you are treating, but typically it takes about 30 minutes per tooth. Dr. Cress will select the shade of bonding that best matches your teeth and then polish the treatment area to help the bonding stay in place. Next, he will apply the dental bonding and sculpt into shape so it will blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. Once it’s in place, he’ll use a curing light to help it harden and polish it to match the shine of your adjacent teeth.
With proper care, dental bonding can last from 4-8 years.
