So then, what really is dental bonding, you’re wondering to yourself? You’ve heard about it before but you don’t know that you necessarily really understand what it does for patients, what type of care it provides, or whether it may be able to help you and your smile. In short, it’s a cosmetic dentistry treatment that relies on composite (a moldable material) that we can use to add to your smile. As for the more intricate details and how it offers little repairs for big, impressive results? Our Ankeny, IA team is prepared to offer a hefty dose of information that will make you feel so much more knowledgeable!
It’s Strictly For Esthetic Purposes
Talking about smile repairs can become confusing for patients, when they find themselves asking if it’s an oral health repair or a cosmetic repair. When you’re learning about dental bonding, remember that it is strictly provided to help with the way your smile looks, which means it’s meant for esthetic improvement. It is not a treatment we provide to fix damage to your oral health (that’s what restorative care like fillings and crowns are for). Think you need a little fix for your grin? Call us!
It’s Mostly About Those Little Issues
Need to address widespread problems, discoloration, textural issues, spacing, and more? If so, you may be better off considering cosmetic care in the form of porcelain veneers, which can quickly address your entire smile, as you customize every last change. However, when you’re considering dental bonding, we remind you that this is most frequently used for a small repair or a handful of little issues. Maybe you have one or more chips, a stain (or a few stained teeth), a couple teeth that are an odd length or shape, etc. With the use of bonding, we can customize the shade of the composite, cover or essentially re-sculpt the problem site, and your smile will look dramatically improved as a result!
