Phoenix Cosmetic Bonding - Repair Fractured Teeth in One Ahwatukee Foothills Dental Visit
Improving the aesthetic appeal of your smile doesn’t have to require multiple visits. At Ahwatukee Foothills Dental Care
, our team offers an affordable alternative to traditional cosmetic procedures with in-office cosmetic bonding.
What is Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding is a non-invasive
method of restoring a chipped, cracked or fractured teeth. During this procedure, tooth-colored composite resin is applied to the damaged areas of the tooth. Unlike traditional aesthetic procedures, bonding does not require that the tooth is altered, thereby protecting the structural integrity of the tooth.
What are the Benefits of Cosmetic Bonding?
There are a number of benefits associated with cosmetic bonding. In particular, the affordability of this procedure makes it a popular option among individuals who are not ready to make the long-term financial commitment to veneers or crowns. Unlike traditional cosmetic restorations that may require shaving or filing down the tooth to ensure a proper fit, cosmetic bonding does not require extensive preparation that may compromise the health of the tooth and is easily reversible or modified.
Another benefit of cosmetic bonding is the treatment’s versatility. Cosmetic bonding can be used to close gaps left after orthodontic treatment, ensuring the correct proportions and dimensions that may not be thoroughly addressed with braces. Bonding can also be used as a restoration following cavity treatment or to repair chipped teeth, leaving patients with a seamless looking smile that helps improve their long-term oral health.
How Do I Get Cosmetic Bonding?
At Dr. Pulsipher’s Ahwatukee dental office, it only takes one appointment to correct your smile with cosmetic bonding. During this non-invasive procedure, our Phoenix dentist first uses a shade guide to determine the right color for the resin. The affected tooth is then lightly buffed and the conditioning liquid is applied to help the bonding material stick to the tooth. Next, the composite resin is applied to the tooth and molded to fit in seamlessly with the tooth. Once the resin has hardened, it is polished to match the surrounding teeth.
