Addressing imperfections of the smile can be done in many ways. Dr. A of Innovative Dental By Dr. A encourages patients who are interested in repairing problems with their smile to come into his Philadelphia-based practice and learn about the myriad of esthetic options available in his practice. From veneers to dental bonding, patients can have all procedures done under one roof. Patients who want a fast yet effective way of repairing the shape or appearance of a tooth may opt for a treatment known as dental bonding.
Dental bonding, or composite bonding, is a treatment that can be used on teeth that are permanently stained, broken, or unusually shaped. This material is like a clay that is applied to the prepared tooth, shaped into place, filed, and polished to blend in with the natural tooth enamel. Unlike porcelain veneers, which are custom-made facings bonded over a tooth to improve esthetics, dental bonding can be done in one visit, in just a matter of minutes. Patients also find dental bonding to be more affordable though it will not last as long as a veneer. Composite resin is also susceptible to staining over the course of time, so patients are advised to continue visiting Dr. A for cleanings and examinations and have the bonding material replaced as necessary. Some patients may choose to upgrade to veneers later on for a longer-lasting alternative.
A consultation appointment with an evaluation is the best way to learn about the procedures available. Patients will be able to ask questions about whether or not this treatment is the most appropriate for their specific needs and desires. Each dental treatment is unique, and it should be handled as such.
If you live in or around the area of Philadelphia and believe that cosmetic work can enhance your smile, contact the team at Innovative Dental By Dr. A. We encourage patients to learn about the ways they can improve the appearance of one or more teeth within their smile with solutions such as veneers and dental bonding. We also work with insurance companies to help patients get the coverage they need to reduce their out-of-pocket costs for services.
