A popular procedure to help teeth look whiter while keeping them natural-looking, is dental bonding. Using tooth-colored composites, our Germantown cosmetic dentist, Dr. Neil Weston, will fill cavities, repair cracks, close gaps between teeth, and build up any worn edges of your teeth. This material is placed wherever it’s needed to rebuild, resurface and whiten teeth. Because dental bonding requires such precise placement of the restorative material, the dental bonding procedure is normally done in one visit. For minimally invasive smile makeovers, Dr. Weston, at Weston Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, can apply the same composite materials directly to the surfaces of your teeth that show the most when you smile. The materials are sculpted to the surfaces of your teeth for an incredibly realistic look. Dental bonding is usually an excellent, less expensive answer for patients with gaps, chips, stained, or crooked teeth. Usually needing minimal prep work, no molds and no temporaries, the artistic skill and meticulous technique our Germantown cosmetic dentist has with dental bonding will give you the result you want without losing too much of your natural tooth.
Unlike porcelain veneers, which are manufactured in a lab and require our Germantown cosmetic dentist to remove a large amount of healthy tooth structure, dental bonding material can be applied in a single office visit with minimal tooth removal. Dental bonding is not only one of the easiest, least invasive, and most conservative of all cosmetic dental procedures, but it’s quick and shows immediate results. Dental bonding is also painless and usually performed without the use of an anesthetic since very little tooth removal is required.
An expert in the hand-on skills required for precise veneering and tooth sculpting, Dr. Weston prides himself on the most natural looking cosmetic dental restorations. Using state-of-the-art bonding material, it is easy to be polished and also stain resistant. The material stains similarly to your natural teeth and can be cleaned with a routine dental cleaning with our Germantown cosmetic dentist. Modern, high quality bonding materials can last ten to fifteen years, and in some cases even longer but, if need be, the dental bonding can be redone easily in a single office visit. Whatever the age or need, everyone can benefit from dental bonding and be left with an improved, bright smile.
