The flaws in a person’s smile aren’t always big ones. Often enough, they can be relatively minor – a little stain, a slight crack, etc. Still, having them fixed when they appear is always a good idea. That’s why Dr. Grill and our team offer cosmetic dental bonding! Thanks to this service, Northwest Family Dental of Huntsville can touch up your pearly whites. Please read on or book a visit to learn more about it.

What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

Cosmetic dental bonding is a way to hide small faults in your teeth. To work, it applies tooth-colored resin onto the relevant flaws – minor tooth stains, little chips, cracks, etc. This resin hardens afterward and hides your issues from view.

Cosmetic dental bonding (usually) only takes one or two visits. (However, some patients must get several sessions to hide severe tooth damage.) It starts by cleaning the affected teeth and removing their decayed bits. Our dentists then apply the resin onto your grin and sculpt accordingly. Next, they’ll harden this resin with a curing light once your results are verified. The last steps are a quick polish of your teeth and some last-minute adjustments.

Who is a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

So long as you're in decent health, you'll qualify for cosmetic dental bonding. This option doesn’t have strict criteria you must meet. That said, the best treatment candidates are those with slight smile flaws. You’re suited for cosmetic dental bonding if you have one (or more) of the following:

  • Moderate-to-heavy tooth stains
  • Small chips or cracks in your teeth
  • Teeth with gaps between them
  • Oddly-shaped teeth
  • Short or “stubby” teeth

To confirm your candidacy, you’ll want to see Dr. Grill. He can perform a close oral exam and see if treatment will help. Should he believe so, he’ll draft a custom treatment plan for you. You’ll then see a transformed smile in little time.

The Benefits of Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic dental bonding has many good upsides. In particular, the most notable ones are:

  • Versatile Effects – The treatment’s resin can cover the whole fronts of your teeth. That way, it’ll hide many of your smile flaws at once.
  • Quick Care – Compared to other aesthetic dental services, it won't take long for you to get a bonding treatment. You can finish the process in as little as two appointments.
  • Easy Maintenance  – It’s not hard to maintain the results of cosmetic dental bonding. To do so, simply brush your teeth twice daily and floss between them once daily.
  • Cost-Effective Service – Even as it enhances your grin, cosmetic dental bonding has a low price. That means it's one of the most cost-effective forms of cosmetic dental work.
