If you think about, regardless of what language we speak we can all universally communicate that we are happy through one simple expression: a smile. However, if you are embarrassed by your smile, you may choose to hide it from those around you rather than show it off. This is where our Lawrenceville, GA, dentist, Dr. Tu Nguyen, can help. Get cosmetic dentistry and be proud to show off your smile.

What is dental bonding?

When our general dentist talks about dental bonding, we are talking about a procedure that uses a tooth-colored material to cover small cosmetic defects that may not affect how your smile functions but can affect your smile’s appearance, as well as your confidence. Of course, bonding isn’t right for more serious imperfections but can handle minor problems like small gaps between teeth, stains and little cracks or chips.

What kind of material does dental bonding use?

Have you ever had to get a cavity filled? If so, then the tooth-colored resin that we used to fill your tooth is the same material we will use for dental bonding. The only change is that instead of needing to drill or use anesthesia, as we do to fill a tooth, dental bonding is completely non-invasive. By just applying the resin and molding it into the proper shape we can improve the color, shape or size of one or more teeth.

What should I expect if I get dental bonding in Lawrenceville, GA?

If we deem you an ideal candidate for bonding you will undergo a professional cleaning. Then we will apply a special and painless solution over your tooth or teeth that will make it easier for the resin to stick to the surface of the tooth.

Then the resin is applied to the tooth and shaped. Once the resin has been shaped we will use a special light to harden the material permanently. It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour per tooth.

Not all cosmetic dentistry has to be expensive or invasive in order to achieve the perfect results. If you want to find out if dental bonding is all you need then call AT Dental in Lawrenceville, GA, today to schedule your consultation.
