A dentist’s toolkit is filled with handy instruments for fixing most types of dental issues. Cosmetic dentistry at Harris Dental in Phoenix is especially effective for improving the appearance of your smile.
In the past few years, procedures like teeth whitening, dental implants, and porcelain veneers have had a lot of attention. In this post, we are going to talk about an effective but rather ignored treatment that has been used successfully for decades. We’re talking about dental bonding.
Dentists use bonding to repair tooth issues caused by decay, chips, or cracks. Large spaces between healthy teeth can be filled with bonding material, and bonding can guard tooth roots if the gums have regressed.
Bonding involves a resin material that is durable and natural looking. It is applied to the teeth while soft and putty-like, and then hardened (or cured) with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.
Discolored teeth can be lightened with bonding. Since bonding material is easily molded, teeth can be lengthened or re-shaped to more pleasing proportions. Bonding is usually used as part of a total smile makeover.
Bonding is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures offered at Harris Dental in Phoenix. Other services include general dentistry. Schedule your next cleaning and checkup with us today.
