Nobody’s perfect—or so the saying goes. But can you have a perfect smile? The answer to that question may indeed be “Yes!” If you look at your smile in the mirror or in a photograph and see a slight imperfection that annoys you, then your cosmetic dentist in Aurora can help.Dr. Mauck and Dr. Ricci are experts in the dental art of cosmetic bonding. With this fast and easy treatment, they can repair the slightest imperfection, so your smile looks absolutely perfect to others and in your eyes, too.
The material that is used to reshape your tooth with cosmetic bonding is the same material we use to fill a cavity with a tooth-colored filling. Using composite resin, Dr. Mauck and Dr. Ricci can fill in spaces, reshape your teeth, or cover up stains without having to modify your natural teeth. And if the composite resin is strong enough for a filling, which is usually in a spot that must withstand the pressure of biting and chewing, then this same material is certainly appropriate for the dental bonding Aurora residents want to rejuvenate their smiles.
As a sculptor would use clay to create a masterpiece, our Aurora cosmetic dentists can use cosmetic bonding to sculpt more beautiful teeth. Most often, it’s used to address small dental imperfections, such as cracks, chips, stains, and gaps. Of course, the best way to find out if this cosmetic dental treatment is ideal for your smile goals is by scheduling a consultation. That way, we can make sure no existing oral health concerns (like tooth decay) are present and determine if cosmetic bonding is the best smile-enhancing solution for you!
Naturally, the first step in the cosmetic bonding process is your consultation. When it comes time for the actual treatment, one of our dentists will take a small dab of composite resin and bond it to your tooth. Then, the material is molded, quickly dried with a curing light, and filed into shape. This process can be repeated several times until the optimal shape for your tooth is achieved.
Cosmetic bonding is a more conservative option for those whose cosmetic issues don’t warrant porcelain veneers, which require permanently altering a tooth by removing a small amount of enamel. Conversely, cosmetic bonding does not require any tooth preparation and can usually be completed without any anesthesia!
Another noteworthy benefit of cosmetic bonding is that it’s extremely versatile. If all your smile needs is a little pick-me-up, cosmetic bonding could be the answer. On the other hand, it can also be an essential component of your complete smile makeover. Plus, it can correct numerous dental flaws at once, from small chips and stains to noticeable gaps.
Last, but certainly not least, cosmetic bonding is cost-effective, delivers beautiful results, and can be completed in as little as one appointment.
So, if you’ve been thinking about correcting that little imperfection in your smile, then go ahead and do it! After all, why settle for less when cosmetic bonding can easily and affordably give you the smile you want? The first step toward your dream smile is simple: schedule a consultation with our team .
