Your Farmington Hills cosmetic dentist, Dr. Aziza Askari, offers many preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental procedures. Amongst them is dental bonding. If you feel disconnected with the way your smile looks, you find that you avoid grinning even when you want to, and you run in the other direction when someone tries to take your picture, perhaps you just need to bond with your teeth.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding is typically a less expensive and quick way to cover up flaws on the surfaces of teeth. If you have a great many problems such as chips, cracks, fractures, or deep stains, you may need something like porcelain veneers. However, if your issues are more minor, dental bonding is an option that will provide noticeable positive changes, sometimes in just one visit to Comfort Dental Spa. Dental bonding is done with the same material used for filling cavities: composite resin. Composite materials are initially liquid and completely moldable until they are exposed to a curing light that permanently hardens the substance. Dr. Askari can expertly shape and color-match the bonding material to look like your surrounding tooth surfaces.
Dental Bonding or Porcelain Veneers?
As we mentioned above, there are definitely similarities between cosmetic dental bonding and porcelain dental veneers. If you are on a budget, though, dental bonding is more affordable because it uses composite-resin as opposed to porcelain wafers which need to be fabricated in a lab. If dental bonding has any negatives compared to veneers, the procedure is a bit less durable and more prone to stains. The issues that made you interested in the procedure in the first place (chips, cracks, etc.) can pop up again with dental bonding. Bonding on your teeth will most likely last about 5-10 years.
