San Jose Dentist Explains Dental Bonding

thumbs up smilingPeople can suffer discontent with their smiles for a variety of reasons, from small cosmetic issues to major health concerns that can endanger your entire dental integrity. If disease or damage threatens your smile, then you have options for returning your smile to its former glory, although more severe cases may require invasive dental restoration. If your teeth are marred by a small cosmetic issue, however, you probably won’t require a major overhaul to fix the problem. San Jose dentist, Dr. Randall LaFrom, explains a couple of methods he can use to improve your smile without the need for extensive dental work.

Minor Fix-Ups for Minor Cosmetic Issues

As far as minor tooth issues go, tooth stains are perhaps among the most common. Typically, professional tooth-whitening treatments can help you eradicate these stains; however, when stains are especially severe, or if your tooth is marred by a small chip or odd space, then tooth whitening will probably not resolve your issues.

Made from the same composite resin material that is used for discrete dental fillings, a dental bonding is placed on the offending area of your tooth to cover extreme staining, chips, and odd unsightly spaces. Once placed, the material is sculpted to match the desired shape and polished to mimic the shine of your natural tooth enamel. Once completed, a dental bonding will discretely cover your cosmetic blemish and allow you to smile with confidence once again.

More Involved Restorations

If a dental bonding is not sufficient to correct your blemish, then you may benefit from another cosmetic dental procedure, such as porcelain veneers, which are thin shells of dental porcelain that are bonded to the faces of your teeth. The innovation of porcelain veneers can allow you to address a number of cosmetic issues simultaneously, helping you restore your smile quicker and more effectively than if you were to address each issue separately.
