Some St Charles IL people are unhappy with the way their teeth look but many mistakenly assume that cosmetic dentistry is far too expensive to pursue.
Sure, a complete mouth reconstruction can be a steep investment. Consider the cost of dental school and post-graduate training for a master level cosmetic dentist. Consider the expense of individually creating multiple restorations at a high-tech dental lab. Consider the cost of setting up and maintaining a full-service dental practice or laboratory.
Before you give up on improving your smile, however, examine a less celebrated but extremely effective and competitively-priced cosmetic dental remedy: dental bonding.
Dental bonding has a wide range of applications for unappealing teeth. Bonding can correct a tooth that is damaged, chipped, short, or discolored. It can can also correct teeth that have gaps in between them.
How does the dental bonding procedure work?
First, your tooth will be slightly (but painlessly) roughed up to help the resin adhere. Your dentist will use a shade guide to find out the precise color of composite to match the existing teeth. Your dentist will apply liquid composite resin on the tooth, layer by layer. He or she will carefully shape and polish it before it hardens.The tooth is then covered with a conditioning liquid that aids in adhesion.
Once the resin is bonded, it is further molded to the perfect shape for your bite and appearance. A laser helps rapidly bond the resin in place as it hardens. Further shaping and polishing, if required, complete the procedure. The result is a beautiful smile.
Bonding is a simple and cost-effective method for perfecting your smile. Call today at to set up an appointment at 847-741-2353.
