Cosmetic Dental Bonding could be the solution if you just aren’t sure about porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are beautiful, but are also permanent.
In order for veneers to fit snugly against your teeth a portion of your enamel needs to be removed. This will assure that your new porcelain veneers look and feel natural. However, not everyone is ready for a permanent solution to chips, cracks or staining caused from age.
According to Dr. Jeffrey Gilmor from the Glen Dental Center in Glenview, cosmetic dental bonding looks just like your natural teeth and although it is not as strong as porcelain veneers, can give you a long lasting smile as long as you practice good oral hygiene.
When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Gilmor for a dental bonding assessment, your teeth and gums will be checked for disease and decay. If you suffer from either, Dr. Gilmor will need to take care of those problems before continuing with cosmetic dental bonding. If a procedure, such as root canal therapy, or root scaling and planing is needed, Dr. Gilmor may decide to postpone your cosmetic dental bonding until your next dental appointment.
If your teeth and gums are healthy, enough for cosmetic dental bonding, the tooth or teeth that are to be restored will be etched so that the bonding material adheres to the teeth. After etching a liquid will be applied before the bonding resin is applied. Dr. Gilmor will mold the resin into place and when happy with the natural looking results, will bond or cure the resin with a light or laser to harden for the perfect smile.
