See Stunning Results With Bonding

Sheridan, WY, dentist offers cosmetic bonding

Do you have stains on your pearly whites that cannot be lifted with professional treatment? These can be frustrating as it can interrupt your smile’s appearance. The team at Grinnell Street Dental in Sheridan, WY, can help disguise these flaws with the use of cosmetic bonding. This is a non-invasive enhancement that can address several imperfections in a single appointment.

Getting Started With This Process

Before any cosmetic changes can be made to your smile, you will first need a consultation with your dentist. They will examine your oral cavity to ensure that your teeth and gums are in good health. If there are any noticeable signs of concern, they may recommend having restorations done first. This is because cosmetic treatments target aesthetic concerns and cannot improve your oral hygiene. If your smile is in good health, the treatments can move forward. Each patient’s needs and goals are unique, so your dentist will discuss what these are for you and what the best method may be to reach them. Bonding is suitable for many patients because it is non-invasive and can be done in as little as one appointment.

Bonding The Resin

We use composite resin for this cosmetic bonding process. Imperfections such as worn teeth, discoloration, uneven teeth, or more can be corrected with this procedure. The dentist will take a small amount of the biocompatible material and add it to your tooth’s surface. This material can be shaped to fit properly to the area, and the color will blend in naturally with your pearly whites. After it has been added to your tooth, the dentist will polish it to create a lifelike finish. This treatment should last for many years and can be repaired if it wears down over time. Remember to continue doing your oral hygiene routine after having this done to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Composite Resin Has Other Uses

As mentioned earlier, bonding may also be done to address minor damage. If your teeth have been worn down or mildly chipped, we can add this material to the area to correct it. At our office, we also use composite resin for dental fillings due to their lifelike appearance and durability. This helps the filling blend in while repairing your tooth. However, if the damage is more severe, a dental crown may be required instead. Dental crowns are caps that can be placed over the biting surface of your tooth to restore it after harm. Problems such as fractures or severe cavities may benefit from this type of restoration.
