When it comes to improving your smile by using cosmetic options. There are a few ways to accomplish it without going through an invasive procedure. If you are looking for ways to improve your smile without a bunch of trips to the office. Look no further.
How Bonding Can Improve Your Smile
Dental bonding is a quick way to address flaws in your smile. If you have minor gaps or blemishes that are visible and bothering you, dental bonding can address them. When you come in for the procedure, we will x-ray your teeth. Once we can verify that your teeth are solid (no signs of decay), we can begin the bonding procedure. If you have any signs of decay, it's not a deal-breaker.
We will need to fix the decay and then, we can bond the blemishes. Dental bonding involves applying a tooth-like material to your teeth. It's the same material that is used for a dental filling. The material is bonded to your slight gaps or blemishes. Ultraviolet light is sometimes used to speed up the hardening of the material.
An In-Office Whitening Procedure Can Brighten Your Smile
Those at-home whitening kits may be all the rage, but they can take months to see results. With an in-office visit, we can accomplish roughly what would take months with an at-home kit. The kits you can purchase at home contain a limited amount of hydrogen peroxide. 6% is the limit that is allowed to be included.
When you come to our office you have the supervision of a dental professional which allows us to use a mixture of 30% of hydrogen peroxide and sodium bicarbonate. Not only is it safer to whiten your teeth at the office, but you also receive faster results. At-home kits can remove the enamel of your teeth. We are able to visually watch the process and reapply layers of whitening until the desired shade of white is reached.
