Do you want to change the appearance of your smile, but are unsure about committing to porcelain veneers? Cosmetic bonding is a more conservative cosmetic dentistry solution than can accomplish similar results to veneers without requiring reduction of tooth structure. At Park West Dental Associates, we can use cosmetic bonding to change the appearance of your teeth without needing extensive dental work.
For cosmetic bonding, we apply a tooth-colored composite material to help cover over stains, chips and gaps. Dr. Hogan can use this to help reshape your teeth and even hide gaps in your smile. Once the composite is in place and shaped, it will be hardened and polished. The composite material will reflect light similarly to enamel, giving you a natural looking smile. Cosmetic bonding doesn’t require a dental drill, so if you experience dental anxiety, this could also be a good choice for you.
If you’re not happy with the appearance of your smile, cosmetic bonding could be a great way to improve your smile. With the proper care and maintenance, it will last between three and ten years. Give us a call today to see if this conservative treatment is right for your smile. Dr. Hogan wants all of his patients to have the bright, beautiful smiles of their dreams.
