A solution to create a beautiful smile for Azusa area patients despite imperfections of the natural teeth
When patients in the Azusa community want to create a Hollywood smile for themselves, they may be afraid to learn about the cost and work that goes into some cosmetic restorations; such as dental crowns, orthodontics, or porcelain veneers. This is why Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry of San Gabriel Valley encourages patients to consider consulting with her and her team to find out all she has to offer in terms of affordable solutions to address unsightly imperfections of the teeth. When patients are faced with gaps between teeth, misalignment, or breakage, they may feel self-conscious about their smile. Thankfully, there are options available to our patients including dental bonding.
Many patients in the Azusa area are unfamiliar with dental bonding. Dental bonding is often overlooked for more costly alternatives; such as porcelain veneers. Dr. Brianne Luu understands that sometimes, economical solutions may be just as effective at addressing cosmetic issues as those that are more expensive. This is where dental bonding comes into play. Dental bonding is the use of a composite resin material to form over a tooth to repair it. It is like a clay that is put in place, hardened with a special light, filed down, and then polished so that it looks just like natural tooth enamel. It can be used to disguise a number of issues within the smile, including teeth that are:
- Permanently stained
Dr. Brianne Luu will apply the dental bonding to the tooth and form it into place. It is fabricated to match the color of the existing tooth enamel so it looks completely natural once finished. She hardens it and files it to the correct shape and size over the tooth, and then finishes it off by giving it a polish. Polishing it allows it to have the same sheen as natural tooth enamel so it is not flat and opaque—making it look like an obvious repair.
Many patients love the ease of dental bonding and how it can be completed from start to finish in just one visit. We recommend patients in the Azusa area come to the Gentle Care Dentistry of San Gabriel Valley to learn more about composite resin bonding as an affordable alternative to more expensive considerations.
