If you know even the littlest bit of information about cosmetic dentistry, then you’ve probably heard about bonding. It’s oftentimes compared to its more well-known cousin — porcelain veneers, but it offers a less invasive way to get the beautifully balanced smile you’ve always wanted and deserve.
How Does Bonding Work?
The process of bonding involves your Luma cosmetic dentist carefully and artfully adhering a composite resin material to the front surface of your teeth. We take the time to ensure the color of the bonding is matched entirely to the color of your other teeth for a seamless, natural look and flow. When it’s time for your treatment to begin, we start by gently roughening (or micro-etching) the surface of your teeth to make sure there’s a strong, durable bond formed. We then use a special gel that’s applied to the surface, followed by a primer or bonding agent. When everything is adhered properly and set on your teeth, we use a bright, UV-type light to harden the materials. For the final, feel-good step, your teeth are shaped and polished before your amazing results are revealed.
The Many Benefits of Bonding
Revamping your smile with cosmetic dentistry can do so much more than you think for both your oral and overall health. From the latest teeth straightening techniques to brightening teeth whitening, it’s all available to you along with the option of composite bonding. Here are some of the advantages of choosing this type of treatment:
- Improved Health and Confidence – You can feel your smile shine and your self-confidence soar when your cosmetic journey is complete. You’ll want to share your new look with the world all day, every day.
- Fast and Effective Results – Compared to teeth straightening, bonding is able to provide you with a more immediate outcome that you can see in as little as one comfortable, easy visit to one of our Luma Dentistry offices.
- Versatile and Affordable – Compared to some of the other cosmetic dentistry solutions we offer, bonding can be a great way to achieve your ideal smile without investing a lot of your time and money into the process.
