How dental bonding from your Pasadena dentist can enhance your smile
As you age, your smile ages right along with you. You may have noticed some cracks, chips, discolorations and other defects that weren’t there before. Fortunately, there is any easy, relatively inexpensive solution to give you back your beautiful smile. It’s called dental bonding! Dr. Kevin Gill in Pasadena, TX wants to share the many benefits of dental bonding.
Dental bonding is dental artistry in action. Dr. Gill will match the color of bonding material to your teeth, ensuring a seamless, natural look. Then he will sculpt and shape the bonding material perfectly and cover dental issues like these:
- Excessive wear and erosion due to aging
- Cracks, chips or breakage due to trauma
- Discolorations due to lifestyle or medications
- Jagged, uneven teeth due to poor bite alignment
Dental bonding is one of the most versatile cosmetic dental treatments available. Dr. Gill can even cosmetically correct small spaces or gaps between your teeth.
Dr. Gill begins your bonding treatment by applying an etching solution. This solution creates tiny pore-like openings to retain the bonding material. The next step is the bonding cement. This cement works like glue to attach the bonding material to your tooth surface.
The bonding material is called composite and it is a unique liquid resin that is color-matched and shaped to match your teeth as closely as possible. The composite is applied, shaped and then hardened using a high-tech ultraviolet “curing” light.
As a final step, Dr. Gill will further shape and polish your bonding treatment to be virtually invisible on your teeth. People will notice your teeth look so much more attractive, but they won’t know why! Your smile will look naturally great!
There are many benefits of dental bonding and you deserve to discover them for yourself! Don’t visit just anyone because you need the services of a dental artist like Dr. Gill. For more information about what dental bonding can do for you, call Dr. Gill in Pasadena, TX today!
