Are you tired of hiding behind unattractive teeth? Would you like an attractive smile but feel cosmetic dentistry is out of your budget? What if you could get the result you want using a simple and affordable procedure? Now you can with the help of your cosmetic dentist at Distinctive Dentistry of Maitland. Cosmetic dental bonding in Altamonte Springs, FL is a minimally invasive treatment that provides a drastic improvement to the color, size, and shape of your teeth. We will give you the beautiful smile you have always wanted.
Cosmetic bonding involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin material to the teeth to correct imperfections. Unlike veneers, it does not involve permanently altering your teeth or a lengthy treatment process. In fact, you can often transform your teeth in just one appointment.
The resin is customized to match your enamel color to create natural-looking results. It is also easily sculpted to improve a variety of issues that cause you to feel insecure about your smile, such as:
To transform your smile, you first need a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Altamonte Springs to ensure you are a candidate for the procedure. A customized treatment plan is created to give you a picture-perfect smile.
A shade guide is used to select the ideal color for the resin material to match your natural teeth. After your teeth are cleaned, your dentist slightly etches their surfaces. This helps to create a secure bond between your tooth and the material.
Your teeth are coated with a conditioning liquid to help the material adhere to your teeth. The putty-like material is placed on your teeth and molded and smoothed into the desired shape. A special ultraviolet light is used to quickly harden it. The resin is then smoothed, reshaped, and polished to ensure you have a flawless smile when you walk out of our dental office.
On average, you can expect the process to take about 30 minutes to 1 hour; however, the length of time needed varies depending on how many teeth are treated. In some cases, you may need multiple appointments. To ensure your new smile stays bright, we recommend you avoid any stain-causing factors for 48 hours after your treatment, such as smoking, tea, coffee, and berries.
With the right aftercare, your new smile can last for several years; however, if your bonding should become damaged, we can quickly repair it. To protect its longevity, it is best to maintain your oral hygiene, regular care with your dentist, and avoid anything that may harm the bonding, like using your teeth as tools.
If you are ready to love the smile you see in the mirror, it is time to see if cosmetic bonding is right for you. Contact our dental office today to schedule your consultation.
