Using bonding and white filling solutions for enhancement of the smile and filling cavities
Even the most minor imperfections in the smile can negatively detract from its appearance. This is why cosmetic dentists such as Drs. Chris and Robin Post of Centre Place Dental in Lincoln, Nebraska, may encourage you to book a consultation appointment to speak about the areas of your smile that you want to improve. Our team is experienced in offering aesthetic treatments designed to enhance the smile, including dental bonding for smile repair and as a white filling for cavities.
What is dental bonding?
Dental cosmetic bonding is the use of a composite resin material that improves the appearance of minor imperfections in teeth, such as chips and cracks. The composite resin material is matched to your natural tooth color, so it blends seamlessly with the rest of your smile. During this treatment, our cosmetic dentist applies the composite resin to your tooth and then shapes it into place. A curing light can harden the resin and bond it securely onto your tooth. Dental bonding can be used for bonding gapped teeth but also as a tooth-colored filling material to avoid the unsightly appearance of metal or silver amalgam fillings often used at other dental practices.
Who is a proper candidate for dental bonding?
The dental bonding treatment is a quick procedure typically completed within one visit to Centre Place Dental. It is a fantastic solution for those who want immediate results without undergoing more extensive treatments, such as porcelain veneers or crowns. Dental bonding also comes at a much lower cost than other treatments!
How long does dental bonding last?
Composite resin is designed to stay in place for many years before needing to be replaced. Patients will want to be mindful of enjoying foods and even beverages that stain and discolor their composite resin, as this may require replacement sooner rather than later. This includes blueberries, teas, coffee, and red wine, some of the more common culprits of stained resin.
