It’s perfectly natural to have lots of questions about the details of dental bonding, even though you may have already gathered a general understanding that bonding is efficient, effective, and absolutely safe for your smile! Instead, you may hope to bring up your concerns and uncertainties with our Southlake, TX team as we respond to details that pertain to just how this cosmetic care treatment is going to work for you. Of course, a consultation is always a good choice … but for now, let’s cover some topics frequently brought to our attention!
Can Bonding Really Whiten My Teeth?
Yes, of course, you may most certainly rely on dental bonding to whiten your teeth. So, how to know if it’s the right choice? Remember that by coming in to see our team, we can talk with you about whether bonding is a better choice over traditional teeth whitening and why. If bonding is right for you, we will customize the shade of the material we use and then apply it to your teeth for a brighter grin.
What If I Need The Composite To Match My Tooth?
Now, you may be wondering, what if you don’t want dental bonding in a shade brighter than your natural teeth because what you need is material that matches the tooth in question? This may happen if you have one small stain on a tooth that you’d like to cover. Again, remember: We can customize the shade, which means we can either make it brighter than your tooth or match it to your tooth’s natural shade.
How Does It Add Tissue?
So, as you may have already realized, dental bonding does not literally add dental tissue to your tooth. However, what it does provide for you is the addition of the aforementioned composite. The material is an acrylic resin that we also use for tooth-colored fillings. You know that we can customize the shade. Now, realize that we can also customize the way it works for your needs. We may use it in a paint-like fashion to camouflage problems with a very thin layer (such as stains or craze lines). Or, we may sculpt it (think of it more like clay) in order to help your tooth appear longer, to help it look wider as we fill gaps, etc. Once finished, we will cure it (which means harden it), we will polish it (so it shines like dental tissue), and you’ll be done!
