If you’re not in love with the smile you see in the mirror, you don’t need to feel weighed down by your insecurities any longer. You can get the smile of your dreams without needing a lengthy or invasive procedure. Your cosmetic dentist in Reno will transform your smile after just one visit using a popular alternative to more invasive options, like veneers or crowns. Instead, you can achieve drastic results with dental bonding.
Direct bonding is a common cosmetic treatment used to resolve a variety of aesthetic issues without permanently altering the teeth. A composite resin material is custom-made to match the color of your enamel. It’s placed on your tooth and sculpted into the ideal shape to improve its overall color and size. This is a simple solution that significantly enhances your smile after just one visit.
Direct bonding is a versatile treatment that can correct a variety of cosmetic concerns, including:
After an initial consultation to ensure you’re a candidate for the treatment, you’re scheduled for your procedure. Generally, the process takes 30 to 60 minutes, but if you’re treating several teeth, it may take a bit longer. We may even recommend more than one appointment if you’re treating multiple teeth.
In some cases, we’ll use a local anesthetic to ensure you don’t feel any discomfort, but it isn’t always necessary. First, we clean your tooth and apply a weak acid to it, which opens the pores in your enamel and dentin. After it’s rinsed from your tooth, we’ll apply the resin. The material is made to match the color of your enamel to blend in with your tooth when sculpted into the ideal shape. We use a special dental light to quickly harden it. After smoothing and polishing your tooth, you can walk out of our office feeling confident about your new smile.
Direct bonding in Reno can last for a decade or longer with the right aftercare. There are several things you can do to ensure your new smile lasts, such as:
