Cosmetic Dentistry Made Easy with Composite Bonding
Everyone, whether it is Miley Cyrus, Jessica Simpson or Hilary Duff or any common man or woman, wants a beautiful smile which can make hearts throb. But everyone either doesn’t have a proper teeth structure or s/he doesn’t have enough fortune to spend on cosmetic dentistry to beautify his/her smile. But now there is a reason to smile for those wishing to dazzle people with their smiles and it is dental bonding techniques which can bring a complete smile makeover at much low costs than the pricey dental veneers. They can avail this type of dentistry in Brentwood or Louisville or anywhere, because it is widely available.
With dental bonding, the dentist can refurbish a perfectly aesthetic and functional smile within a few hours and the cost ranges from $125 to $1,500, which depends on the kind of procedure and the amount of work done.
Usually composite dental bonding is brought in use to correct chipped and broken teeth, to fill in gaps between teeth and cavities and to reshape teeth. It is so popular because its color and texture matches perfectly with that of the natural teeth. Bonding also ensures that your refurbished teeth will keep on their natural translucency and won’t look opaque and fake as they do with certain cheap dental crowns.
Tooth-colored composite bonding is an ideal solution when you want an even smile. The job of the dentist is just to replace the old metallic/silver fillings with composite and your teeth will become even in texture and color to make your smile beautiful. However, you will have to keep in mind that bonding doesn’t work in case of very large filings; it cannot be used to rebuild big tooth surfaces.
Before applying the composite material, the dentist first performs a complete cleaning of teeth to remove any plaque and tartar. Next s/he will choose the most natural and matching color or shade of composite material and begin the reconstructive dental work.
The bonding material is generally applied on the tooth even in many thin layers till the dentist accomplishes the desired tooth structure, size, color and translucency. To smooth out the tooth and give it a natural look, a polishing process is used by the dentist as a last step.
Usually all dentists, and not just cosmetic dentists perform composite bonding. So, you will have to check whether a general dentist of your area does the procedure, because that will reduce some cost. You will first have to ensure whether s/he is really skilled enough to do the work proficiently, for which you can meet his/her previous clients. Otherwise better get the procedure done by a cosmetic dentist.
Small composite fillings are pretty cheap and dentists can even make composite veneers which cost only a fraction of that of a porcelain veneer for instance. The dentist should be experienced in these types of cosmetic and reconstructive work to perform a perfect dental work. You can ensure about the dentist’s skill by observing the before-and-after pictures of his/her patients or meeting some of the patients in person.
