Dental Bonding Candidates
By Patrick Casey on May 04, 2012
Dental bonding is a simple way to enhance your smile and mask minor cosmetic imperfections in your teeth. When you visit a skilled Montreal cosmetic dentist at Smile Montreal, we can determine if you’re a candidate for dental bonding or one of our other high-quality treatments, such as porcelain veneers.
What is Dental Bonding?
A quick procedure with beautiful results, dental bonding uses non-toxic, tooth-colored bonding materials to fix cosmetic tooth flaws. Dental bonding requires only a single visit to improve the appearance of your teeth. With dental bonding, we can subtly correct teeth with any of the following minor problems:
- Cracks, crevices, and chips in the tooth enamel
- Gaps between teeth
- Stains or discoloration
When you visit Drs. Patrick and Charles Casey for dental bonding or any of our other cosmetic dental procedures, we’ll make your smile goals our priority. During a dental bonding treatment, Dr. Casey cleans and prepares the tooth, then applies the bonding materials in layers. The bonding material is hardened with a special dental light while Dr. Casey sculpts the tooth into the desired shape and size. Finally, the surface of the bonded tooth is buffed and polished to ensure it blends naturally with the surrounding teeth.
Who is a Candidate for Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a great way to touch-up your teeth. If you’re seeking to cosmetically mask minor smile concerns without undergoing extensive dental work, you may be an ideal candidate for dental bonding. Patients should also consider the advantages of dental bonding. Our dental bonding treatments are:
- Fast - Treatment is usually completed in one visit.
- Natural-looking - We use tooth-colored bonding materials for superb results.
- Painless - No drilling required!
- Affordable - Dental bonding is a relatively cost-effective cosmetic dental procedure.
- Long-lasting - With proper care, your bonded teeth can last for several years.
A consultation with Dr. Casey at Smile Montreal is the best way to determine if you are a candidate for dental bonding. Bonded teeth require daily brushing and flossing to prevent decay and stains, just like a natural tooth. To help ensure the longevity of a bonded smile, patients should also avoid chewing on certain hard foods and objects (including hard candy, ice, and pens) to prevent damage to the dental bonding material.
Additional Cosmetic Treatment Options
If dental bonding isn’t the best way to meet your cosmetic dental needs, we offer a variety of procedures that are guaranteed to give you a smile you’ll be proud to show. Drs. Patrick and Charles Casey specialize in the latest cosmetic dentistry procedures, including porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers– When your teeth need more than a touch-up, porcelains veneers are an excellent way to correct the color, shape, and alignment of your teeth. Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are custom-crafted to look just like natural teeth and are stain-resistant, so your smile stays beautifully bright.
