Whether the setting is professional or social, with family, friends, colleagues or new faces, you always try make a good impression. And can you guess what the leading indicator is of the impression you give? If you answered, “my smile,” then you’re correct. A smile is similar to body language—it quietly speaks volumes. Is your smile relaying the message that want people to receive? Or is there just a little something you need to fix in your smile? With cosmetic dental bonding, Dr. Heather Dubitsky-Timchak at Dubitsky Family Dental in Hillsborough, NJ, can provide quick solutions for imperfect teeth, so your smile sends the message you want others to see.
The smile flaws that cosmetic dental bonding can repair include:
- Chipped or slightly cracked teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth that have not responded to teeth whitening
- Teeth that have gaps in between them
- Somewhat crooked teeth
- Teeth that are misshaped
The Cosmetic Dental Bonding Process
You may not even realize that the same material Dr. Dubitsky-Timchak uses to repair a cavity with a tooth-colored filling is the same material used for cosmetic dental bonding. Made of composite resin, this material can be blended to exactly match the color of your teeth. (Actually, if you’re considering teeth whitening, do that before dental cosmetic bonding, because this material does react to the bleach in whitening gel.) These composite materials are directly applied to the teeth in your smile zone. Working quickly, Dr. Dubitsky-Timchak sculpts and polishes the material for a perfect finish that is as lustrous and translucent as your natural teeth. The process can usually be completed in just one office visit.
With a little bit of tender loving care, your cosmetic dental bonding can last for years. Be sure to brush and floss your teeth daily and maintain your regular dental checkups, so we can ensure the integrity of your bonded teeth. Also, try to avoid using teeth with cosmetic dental bonding to bite or chew on hard objects such as ice and nuts or fingernails and pens.
