If you’re looking for a skilled cosmetic dentist in Rocky Hill, Hartford, Cromwell, or Wethersfield, we’d love to meet you and discuss how dental bonding can improve your smile!
Understanding Dental Bonding And Reshaping
Dental bonding is a cosmetic treatment that uses a special type of dental resin to restore the shape and color of your teeth. The resin is applied directly to your tooth, then Dr. Ahmed uses special tools to mold it into the correct shape.
Reshaping is also typically used alongside dental bonding. This procedure involves the removal of a small amount of enamel from surrounding teeth to give your smile a more seamless look. Together, bonding and reshaping are used to treat most cosmetic issues, ranging from gaps, minor chips, and misshapen teeth.
The Dental Bonding And Reshaping Process
The process begins with a thorough cleaning to prepare for the application of the resin. Numbing may also be required if you are having any of your teeth reshaped, but it is not usually necessary for dental bonding. Dr. Ahmed will select a dental resin that matches your teeth perfectly, and place it gently on your tooth.
The resin will be sculpted into the proper overall size and shape, then Dr. Ahmed will harden it onto your tooth using a special UV light. Once the resin has hardened, he will then trim and refine it further, until it looks just like a natural tooth. The bonded tooth will then be buffed and polished. The entire process typically only takes about 45 minutes per tooth.
The Benefits Of Dental Bonding And Reshaping
- Non-invasive – Unlike alternative treatments like veneers and cosmetic crowns, bonding requires no removal of your natural enamel, making it completely non-invasive.
- Affordable – Dental bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry treatments, making it ideal if you would like to restore your smile on a budget.
- Instant results – The process of bonding and reshaping usually only takes a single appointment, so you can restore your smile instantly.
