TULSA, OK, April 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Cosmetic bonding is a dental procedure that involves the careful application and sculpting of tooth-colored resin onto teeth that have flaws or damage. Perfect Smile Tulsa, a Tulsa cosmetic dentistry practice, has seen the benefits that cosmetic bonding can provide patients and believes the procedure can help to notably improve certain patients' smiles.
Cosmetic bonding is most commonly used to repair tooth decay or cracks, chips and other breakage teeth may have suffered. However, the procedure also can help to whiten discolored teeth, fill in gaps between teeth, add length to teeth and protect a tooth's root against exposure caused by a receding gum line.
The Tulsa, Okla., dentists at Perfect Smile Tulsa find that their patients appreciate cosmetic bonding because it helps to quickly and easily fix their issues while removing minimal enamel. Typically, cosmetic bonding can be performed in a single visit and it has minimal preparation needs. Often, anesthesia is not even required.
The procedure itself is quite simple. Your Perfect Smile Tulsa dentist will roughen the surface of your tooth's enamel with a chemical solution. This rough surface helps the bonding resin to attach to and remain attached to your teeth.
Once the chemical solution is done working, the dentist will sculpt and mold the bonding resin on your tooth until it has reached the desired shape. They will then harden the resin with an ultraviolet light and polish your newly bonded tooth.
"Cosmetic bonding acts much like your natural tooth will, so it can chip and stain over time," says Marianne Davis, Director of Marketing for Perfect Smile Tulsa. "Our Tulsa teeth whitening specialists recommend maintaining a regular dental hygiene regimen and scheduling regular visits to the dentist to ensure that your bonding continues to look its best."
