If you have been dealing with small chips and cracks or teeth that cannot be lightened with professional tooth whitening products, cosmetic dental bonding may be the answer.
Cosmetic dental bonding is a procedure that repairs broken teeth, cracks, and chips and can even be used to fill small spaces between teeth. Your cosmetic dentist in Anaheim Hills may even recommend cosmetic dental bonding for small cavities.
According to Dr. Jack Ringer, past president and an Accredited Fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, cosmetic dental bonding is something that takes a trained eye to administer. Dr. Ringer is a licensed and preferred Orange County cosmetic dentist who has had hundreds of hours of continued education and cosmetic dentistry training.
If you follow the Dental Cosmetics Blog, you will remember that the American Dental Association does not consider cosmetic dentistry. That means that any general dentist can legally apply dental bonding material and even porcelain veneers.
Sadly sitting in the chair of an inexperienced dentist can have far-reaching consequences. Teeth that are too big or too small or teeth that are too white are often the results of a poor cosmetic dentistry application.
Cosmetic dental bonding takes place in one appointment and is less invasive. Cosmetic dental bonding requires little if any removal of the natural tooth.
Before the process begins, pictures and x-rays are taken. This gives Dr. Ringer the opportunity to check out your smile to determine if you are a good candidate for dental bonding. If you are, the tooth or teeth to be bonded will be conditioned with a liquid to help the bond adhere. Once the liquid is applied, the magic begins.
After pictures, a shade guide will be used to match the bonding material to the rest of your smile. Once satisfied the dental bonding material is applied to the tooth. Dr. Ringer will sculpt the tooth before securing it into place with a light or laser. After the tooth has been bonded, it will be polished to perfection.
If you have been considering cosmetic dental bonding, or any other type of restorative or cosmetic dental procedure, call and schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Ringer.
