When looking at a person’s smile, discoloration stands out. When a person has stains on their teeth, this could be from a variety of factors. Some of the factors could be genetic – for example, there are people predisposed to have discolored teeth. Other folks could have discolored teeth due to smoking or drinking coffee. There are a variety of environmental factors at play. Generally, cosmetic bonding is used for smaller scale teeth whitening issues. It is also used for obvious ones as well, so if you have discoloration on the front of your teeth, then you are a prime candidate for getting cosmetic bonding treatment. This simple procedure is perfect for people who don’t want to go through bleaching and veneers for something smaller.
At The Art of Dentistry in Park Ridge, we will begin with an evaluation. At that time our professionals may recommend cosmetic bonding because of how simple the procedure is and how small the area to bond is. The bonding is basically a compound that gets affixed to teeth. The surface of the bonded teeth feels as natural as the normal teeth. The dentist will mix the compound to get the right shade of teeth so that the bonded areas don’t stand out compared to the other, non-bonded surfaces. The dentist will smooth out the area and it dries pretty quickly. Just make sure not to bite into something really hard, as that may damage the bonding.
If there are any problem areas bothering you, call The Art of Dentistry in Park Ridge today. This is an easy way to learn if you are an appropriate candidate for cosmetic bonding.
