- Posted on: Nov 30 2018
When imperfections affect the appearance of the smile, many of our patients in the Beverly Hills, CA area are interested in cosmetic enhancements that are fast, affordable, and effective at disguising these problem areas. Dr. David S. Frey encourages patients to consider the advantages of using composite resin bonding to achieve a more beautiful smile regardless of the imperfections that arise!
What is composite resin bonding?
Also known as dental bonding, composite resin bonding is a method of restoring the smile in just one appointment with a long-term solution. Imperfections that often affect the smile include teeth that are:
- Permanently stained
- Unusually shaped
When these issues are present, composite resin bonding can be used. This material is a tooth-colored clay that can be applied to the teeth, shaped in place, hardened, and polished to cover problem areas while appearing as natural tooth enamel.
What are the advantages of composite resin bonding?
Composite resin bonding has many benefits. It is:
- Placed in one day
Alternatives to composite resin bonding
Dental bonding does have its flaws. This material is susceptible to staining, so many patients may have it replaced every few years to maintain a beautiful appearance. Because of this, sometimes patients consider an alternative such as porcelain veneers. These are ceramic facings that are custom-made to match the smile’s existing teeth. These can last a decade or longer and are stain-resistant. However, they are more expensive than dental bonding and require several visits to complete. It is important that patients take their time learning about their options so they can make an educated decision regarding the restoration most appropriate for their specific needs, timeframe, and budget.
