5 Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic Bonding Wyoming Mi

Interested in a smile makeover? Cosmetic bonding is an affordable, painless, simple procedure that can help you achieve the smile of your dreams. 

Cosmetic bonding uses composite resin to correct small chips, cracks, or stains on your front teeth. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of choosing dental bonding to transform your smile.

1. Noninvasive Dental Procedure

One of the best parts of cosmetic bonding is that it is a noninvasive dental procedure. That means that you won’t need anesthesia to undergo the procedure.

In fact, many of our patients don’t require any type of pain relievers for cosmetic bonding. If you do feel any discomfort, let our dentist know and we can use a local anesthetic if necessary.

2. One Simple Solution

Do you have a tooth that’s chipped? What about a tooth that’s stained? If you have multiple dental issues, you don’t always need multiple solutions. Tooth bonding can solve many dental problems at once.

We recommend tooth bonding for many dental issues, including:

  • Discoloration
  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Misalignment
  • Gaps
  • Misshapen teeth

3. Durable, Long-Lasting Treatment

Your time is valuable, and although we enjoy seeing our patients, we don’t want them to have to come into the office more than necessary. Many patients appreciate that cosmetic bonding is a durable dental solution that can last years to come with proper care.

On average, cosmetic bonding can last anywhere from ten to 15 years. That could be up to double the life you could get out of other cosmetic procedures, such as porcelain veneers.

You should take care of any teeth with composite resin on them the same way you would take care of the rest of your teeth: brushing for two minutes twice a day, flossing daily, and getting your teeth cleaned professionally every six months. You should also avoid using your bonded teeth to open packages, chew on ice, or any other habit that is damaging to teeth in general.

4. Reversible Without Risking Your Oral Health

Cosmetic dental procedures are, by definition, usually not medically necessary—they’re more concerned with the appearance of your teeth, not the health or function of your teeth. But some cosmetic procedures can actually put your oral health in jeopardy if you aren’t committed to maintaining them.

For example, to place porcelain veneers, our dentists have to remove some of your tooth enamel. This is safe as long as you’re committed to wearing your veneers.

However, if you decide one day that you don’t want veneers anymore, the health of your teeth will be diminished because they don’t have veneers or enough enamel to protect them. Tooth enamel doesn’t grow back, so it’s important to be confident in any procedure you choose that sacrifices some tooth enamel for the sake of your smile.

With cosmetic bonding, we often don’t have to remove any tooth enamel at all. That means that if you change your mind later on, we can remove your cosmetic bonding without risking the health of your teeth. If you’re unsure about cosmetic dentistry, dental bonding is a safe, easy way to transform your smile without lasting consequences for your oral health.

5. Quick, Easy, and Affordable

Cosmetic dental procedures can be expensive. If you want to get the smile of your dreams without emptying your bank account, cosmetic bonding is a great solution. 

At some dental offices, dental crowns and veneers have to be made in a lab, which increases both your wait time and your bill. At Family Dentistry, we can apply dental bonding directly to your teeth during your appointment, eliminating the need for a lab altogether.

This means you can transform your smile in a single visit without paying extra for the quick turnaround. In fact, you’ll probably pay less than you would have for lengthier procedures.
