Dental bonding available from Punta Gorda area dentist
Imperfections such as broken or stained teeth can detract from an otherwise beautiful smile. Punta Gorda area patients with aesthetic issues such as these are encouraged to speak to a cosmetic dentist to learn about the options available to them. For many patients seeking an affordable way to hide these problem areas, dental bonding may be the treatment of choice.
Dental bonding is completed using a material called composite resin. The material is close in color to natural tooth enamel and is almost like a clay. Dr. Houman Dehdashti applies the composite resin material to the tooth, shapes it in place, and hardens it with a special light. Then he files it down and polishes it so that it has the sheen and shine of natural tooth enamel. The final results are practically indistinguishable from the natural smile, ensuring a beautiful restoration.
Dental bonding is just one of two solutions for imperfections of the smile. Another alternative patients may want to consider are porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin ceramic facings that the dentist bonds over the front of a tooth. By doing this, patients can cover up problem areas. There are benefits to porcelain veneers including longer lifespan and stain resistance. However, they are costlier. Patients seeking an economical option, as well as one that can be achieved in the same day, often turn to dental bonding instead.
Both dental bonding and porcelain veneers are acceptable ways of addressing imperfect smiles. Both of these options are available for patients. Scheduling a consultation visit with Dr. Houman Dehdashti is the first step in learning more and determining which one is right for you.
