Did you know that direct bonding in Reno is a more affordable option than other cosmetic solutions? Not only is it quicker and less invasive, but it is much more cost-effective, making it a popular and attractive option for individuals looking to hide a few minor cosmetic flaws. Dr. Josh Branco and his team at Sage Dental Care want to help you look your very best, so if you are ready to learn more about direct bonding and what it can do for you, contact our office today!

What is Direct Bonding?

Composite resin

Instead of relying on custom-made restorations to cover your imperfections, direct bonding uses a composite resin that is placed directly onto your tooth enamel and sculpted to perfection. This easy to place substance covers a wide variety of flaws, including chips, cracks, discoloration, stains, and even minor spaces that exist between teeth.

Direct bonding is less invasive than porcelain veneers or a dental crown, and it only takes one appointment to apply, allowing you to leave with a new and improved smile the same day you come in for treatment.

When is Direct Bonding Beneficial?

Direct bonding is most beneficial when patients have only a few problem areas on specific teeth. If you have large gaps or many imperfections, it might be best that Dr. Branco recommend a more extensive treatment to achieve desired results. However, during your consultation, he will examine your smile to determine if this type of treatment is right for you.

If your teeth have any of the following, you will most likely see successful results with direct bonding:

How Does the Process Work?

When you arrive for your appointment with your cosmetic dentist in Reno, he will start by using a shade guide to match the composite resin to your natural tooth color. This will ensure your teeth look completely natural and beautifully blended when finished. Once the resin is the appropriate shade, he will begin to place it directly onto the tooth enamel. At this point, he will use his artistic eye and skillful hand to shape and sculpt the resin so that it lays flat and effectively covers the imperfection on the surface of the tooth.

A special UV light is used to harden the resin into place before Dr. Branco gives your teeth a final polish.

With proper care, your direct bonding can last years, but it is important that you maintain good oral hygiene and avoid stain-causing foods and beverages, as these can cause the resin to become discolored over time.
