Dental bondings and white fillings are popular cosmetic procedures that help improve the look of smiles by fixing gaps, cracks, and irregularities. The use of tooth-colored resin makes the seal invisible and gives the repaired teeth a beautiful, natural look.
At Rejuvenation Dental Studio, our Falls Church, VA dentist recommends dental bonding and white fillings to individuals seeking an effective and affordable treatment to fix a damaged smile. In fact, bonding and fillings not only repair the aesthetic look of the teeth but also have the power to strengthen weakened areas in the mouth – resulting in a flawless-looking smile you can be proud of.
When to Consider Bonding and Fillings
Individuals who should consider bonding and fillings are those who would like an affordable and effective option to fix minor dental flaws, or need a tooth restored after cavity removal. This procedure can be used to correct multiple dental problems such as:
- Cracks, chips, and fractures
- Gaps in the teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Fillings after cavity removal
- Decayed teeth
The dental bonding procedure consists of using a composite resin on the affected tooth or teeth. The resin is sculpted and molded over an adhesive gel which is then placed over the selected tooth. Once the resin has been properly shaped to look natural, an LED light is used to harden the resin. As a finishing touch, Dr. Dang polishes the new bonded tooth in order to give your new smile a beautiful shine.
Investing in a bonding and filling procedure to help repair the aesthetic look of your smile is not only a great solution for your smile but is also a better cosmetic alternative to traditional amalgam fillings.
Additionally, with all the latest advancements in dental technology, cosmetic procedures have become even more reliable and durable. As a result, fillings and bondings may easily last up to 10 years with proper care and are not only safe but also affordable and can help solve many dental problems.
