Your front teeth are most prominent when you smile, so you want them to look their best. Significant gaps between these teeth can detract from your smile’s appearance. Dental bonding can fix this problem fairly quickly without putting a dent in your budget. Cosmetic fillings from Bella Hanono Family Dentistry, Alpharetta, Georgia, can close gapped teeth naturally to give your pearly whites a lovely appearance.
Before the bonding treatment, Dr. Bella Hanono will examine your teeth to ensure they’re healthy. If you have cavities or early gum disease, we will treat these issues first.
Teeth bonding is a relatively simple procedure that can be completed in one dental visit. First, Dr. Hanono roughens the surface of your teeth to help the bonding material stick. Next, we apply the composite filling, smoothing it out evenly to fill the gap between your teeth. A UV light is then used to harden the filling, and your teeth are polished to give them an attractive sheen.
In addition to fixing a gap between your front teeth, cosmetic fillings can be used to:
Tooth bonding isn’t a permanent solution to fixing gapped teeth. Your lifestyle habits will impact the effectiveness and durability of this treatment. If you smoke, for example, or drink wine or coffee regularly, you risk staining your newly bonded teeth. If you bite your nails or chew on pens, bonding may not be the best treatment for you as you could chip or crack the composite material.
Overall, cosmetic bonding offers a quick, easy, economical means of correcting gap issues and improving your smile’s aesthetic appeal.
