Making Your Smile Look Fantastic with Composite Bonding and Veneers
September 23, 2013 by Dr. Emanuel Layliev cosmetic dentistry
Composite bonding is one of the simplest procedures that cosmetic dentists use to correct the look of teeth. It is a type of synthetic, colored resin that is applied to correct problems, such as misshapen or discolored teeth, fractured or chipped teeth, or to fill in areas of decay or wear. Composites have become very strong over the years, so the procedure is helpful for both front and back teeth.
The process is a relatively easy compared to cosmetic alternatives. The composite is placed on the teeth in a softened state. It is then hardened with the use of a special blue light. Often, the treatment can be performed in a single visit, and it is a painless procedure. It is also one of the more affordable ways to make your teeth look great. There is skill involved in making the composite look natural, however, so you want to choose a highly skilled cosmetic dentist with a great reputation. Composite bonding can be a great choice for people who want to get a beautiful smile quickly and affordably.
Dental veneers are a more permanent solution. Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the teeth to give them a natural look and a hardness that is similar to tooth enamel. They can be shaped to adjust tooth position, size and color. A small amount of the original tooth is removed to make room for the veneers and maintain a natural fit inside the mouth, so the process is a little more involved than composite bonding.
Veneers are a more long-term solution and are appropriate when the original teeth have gaps, fractures or misalignments. They can even correct minor problems with bite and cover up stains and discolorations that do not respond well to teeth whitening.
