Azusa, CA dentist offers dental bonding for aesthetic improvements of the smile
Imperfections of the smile can impact the overall appearance. A chipped, misaligned, or gapped tooth near the front of the smile often causes patients embarrassment and make them self-conscious. However, with cosmetic solutions such as dental bonding, Azusa, CA patients can quickly, easily, and affordably address these minor imperfections.
What is dental bonding?
Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry describes dental bonding as tooth-colored material that can be placed on the teeth, hardened with a curing light, and polished to look just like natural tooth enamel. The result? An aesthetic fix to a cosmetic problem!
Advantages of dental bonding
Dental bonding can be used in many situations and is a reliable choice for many of our patients because of the benefits. Dental bonding:
- Can provide same-day fixes for chipped, cracked, or gapped teeth
- Looks natural and can be difficult to discern from the natural tooth enamel
- Can last several years before requiring replacement
- Is an affordable alternative to other options such as porcelain veneers
- Provides coverage for a wide range of cosmetic dental concerns
Who is a candidate?
Most patients who have a healthy smile and are seeking cosmetic enhancement may benefit from the use of dental bonding. During the initial consultation appointment with Dr. Brianne Luu, patients are encouraged to speak to her about the desires they have for their smile. She may consider using dental bonding for a patient or talk to them about the other options available in the practice, such as porcelain veneers. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages that can be discussed during the first evaluation. Our team considers the goals of the patients, as well as their budget and expectations.
