SOUTH PASADENA, CA, October 19, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Flashing a confident smile isn't always easy. Some patients feel self-conscious about their smiles. Take action to make a change. Drs. Chu and Lin, South Pasadena, CA dentists, work in many areas of dentistry: general, cosmetic and emergency. Their experience and expertise can help you grin ear-to-ear without any embarrassment. In regards to cosmetic dentistry, Drs. Chu and Lin's services include bonding, contouring and reshaping, veneers, tooth-colored fillings, whitening and dental implants in South Pasadena. And one material that has multiple uses is bonding.
"Bonding is used for many different reasons, and a procedure can usually be done in one visit. It's easy to blend in with a patient's tooth because we use tooth-colored composites," said Dr. Chu, South Pasadena cosmetic dentist.
Bonding, widely used in cosmetic dentistry, is a procedure where dentists attach dental materials to patients' teeth, and they do this by using dental adhesives and a curing light. There are two forms of dental bonding: direct composite or adhesive bonding.
Like Dr. Chu stated, bonding uses tooth-colored composites, and minor tooth problems are best taken care of by bonding. Cavities, a chipped or cracked tooth and worn teeth can all be fixed by bonding.
Composite bonding offers aesthetic solutions to cavity fillings and teeth. Drs. Chu and Lin match the bonding, a tooth-colored material, to the patient's tooth as an alternative to amalgam fillings (combination of metals). Amalgam fillings are more noticeable and used less often because of tooth-colored fillings. Drs. Chu and Lin use bonding to repair minor cracks and chips in a tooth. Bonding can also be the answer to a small gap between teeth. If patients don't need orthodontic work for a small problem, bonding cuts down the time and price.
Patients spend a lot of money for whitening products, but some teeth are difficult to whiten. Yet again, bonding is an ideal and inexpensive treatment option for stubborn tooth discoloration. A bonding procedure rarely calls for anesthesia, so patients know it's a painless process.
Drs. Chu and Lin advise patients consider this alternative for the front teeth because of low bite pressure.
"Dental bonding can be done in one sitting. We improve patients' smiles in about 30 to 60 minutes, per tooth, depending on the dental issue. It's a treatment option we like to use for minor dental problems. If your teeth need extensive repair, we are happy to discuss alternative cosmetic treatments," said Dr. Lin.
