Composite Resin Bonding and How it Works
- Posted on: Sep 30 2018
Arlington, VA area patients who visit the team at Clarendon Dental Arts are excited to learn about the options available to them for cosmetic enhancement. Cosmetic dentistry has always been of utmost importance to Dr. Danine Fresch Gray. She wants all the dental work she completes to look as natural as possible. We want to ensure patients do not look like they have had “work done” on their teeth and gums. The same applies when she utilizes solutions such as composite resin bonding.
Composite resin bonding is a material that our team uses to address smile imperfections in a natural, yet simple, manner. Dr. Danine Fresch Gray evaluates a patient to determine if they are a candidate for dental bonding. This material is like a clay that Dr. Gray can mold around teeth, hardened with a specialized light, and then file and polish to look like natural tooth enamel. This material is often used to fix teeth that are spaced apart, broken, or have permanent stains. They are a faster and more affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, which can also be used on particular teeth to disguise problem areas.
What Are the Benefits of Composite Resin Bonding?
Composite resin bonding is a safe and natural-looking material for many areas of the smile. In fact, patients who have areas of dental decay may also use dental bonding as a filling. This is a much safer and more aesthetic alternative to more traditional fillings such as silver amalgam. Additionally, composite resin bonding can be done in one appointment and can provide results that last several years.
