Cosmetic Dental Bonding – Hampton, NH
Hide Unsightly Smile Flaws in Just One Visit
You may need more than teeth cleaning to fix minor smile flaws. After all, some tooth stains can be pretty stubborn. On the other hand, clean pearly whites will still show any chips or cracks you have. All that being said, though, there is a solution: cosmetic dental bonding in Hampton! As performed by Oceanside Family Dental, this treatment can hide various tooth-related imperfections. To learn more, just keep reading or contact our office to book a consultation.
What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?
Cosmetic dental bonding is a treatment that hides mild-to-moderate flaws in your teeth. In particular, it relies on a tooth-colored resin to cover things like stains, chips, cracks, fractures, and more. Given the resin’s features, this procedure’s results look natural and blend with the rest of your smile.
Compared to other options, bonding treatment is pretty non-invasive. It doesn’t involve any removal of your enamel, nor does it take very long. In fact, you can see your new-and-improved smile after just one visit!
Who is a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dental Bonding?
Our dental team will assess whether you qualify for bonding at your initial visit. Still, you’ll likely be a good candidate if you suffer from one (or more) of the following:
- Small chips in your teeth
- Minor tooth cracks or fractures
- Gapped teeth
- Tooth stains
- Misshapen or misaligned teeth
The Cosmetic Dental Bonding Process
While cosmetic dental bonding in Hampton usually takes one visit, that meeting has two phases: the consultation phase and the treatment phase.
In the consultation phase, you and Dr. Ravi will discuss your dental needs and goals. More specifically, you’ll talk about what to expect from dental bonding and your desired results. From there, our office can solidify the details of your treatment plan, including the shade of composite resin you’d prefer.
Once the consultation is over, Dr. Ravi will move on to the treatment phase. First, she’ll prep your teeth for the procedure by cleaning and roughing up their surfaces. Her next step will be to apply a conditioning liquid to the treated tooth (or teeth). Afterward, she’ll mold the tooth-colored resin into place and cover up your smile flaws. Last but not least, treatment will end by hardening the resin with ultraviolet light and making some final adjustments.
