A New Smile with Dental Bonding

Cosmetic dental bonding is an excellent alternative to less conservative cosmetic dentistry treatments. Moreover, it can create a natural and esthetic transformation of shade and shape or can be less dramatic if you wish.

In addition, bonding can repair chips and cracks in a single appointment. This isn’t the case with other solutions such as porcelain veneers and dental crowns.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

According to cosmetic dentist Dr. Mike Morris from Chittenden Dental, bonding uses a biocompatible resin. The resin is custom formed to repair and brighten. It is also used to cosmetically enhance the shape of a tooth or fill a small cavity. Bonding is remarkable for cavities in the fronts or esthetic side of teeth as well.

If your chewing system is in good working order, dental bonding may also be recommended if you want to lengthen your teeth or fill a space that has been bothering you for years.

If your bite is not healthy, or your chewing system is not in great working order: dental bonding can be used to esthetically enhance your smile AS WELL as correcting your bite issues so you have the form and function needed for health and beauty.

Whatever the issue, cosmetic dental bonding is a wonderful solution and what makes it even better is that you can have the process completed in one dental visit in Burlington.

Enamel Shaping and Bonding

Another solution that won’t take multiple dental appointments with Chittenden Dental is enamel shaping.

Enamel shaping is as it sounds: During the process your cosmetic dentist in Burlington will reshape the enamel of your teeth and use bonding to enhance your smile.

Enamel shaping is also used if Dr. Morris wants to shape a tooth so that it looks more natural. Keep in mind that most people are not born with teeth that are perfectly proportioned. This is where enamel shaping and dental bonding come in to help both esthetics and function of your bite.

Bioesthetic Dentistry in Burlington

Dr. Morris is a bioesthetic dentist. With his knowledge and training, he will make sure that your jaw joints and bite are working as they should. If they aren’t there could be problems down the road.

Bioesthetic dentistry corrects any bite or jaw issues before restoring teeth. This means correcting the underlying issue long before proceeding with porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental crowns, bonding or enamel shaping.

People who are constantly dealing with restoration repairs or chronic grinding are probably dealing with a cross, under or over bite and corresponding a problem with their temporomandibular joints as well.

Schedule an appointment with a bioesthetic dentist. When you do you will be safe knowing that your new smile will be built on a solid foundation. A solid foundation that includes a balanced grin.
