COSMETIC DENTAL BONDING IN BOULDER, CO
QUICK & EFFECTIVE COSMETIC SOLUTIONS
Dr. David Evans believes in using a conservative approach whenever possible when enhancing smiles. One such approach is composite dental bonding. Dental bondings are used for fixing minor aesthetic problems such as chipped or cracked teeth, any discoloration on the tooth ís surface, or reducing the gaps between teeth. Dental bonding creates more aesthetically pleasing teeth and a brighter smile using composite material or resin, which is bonded to an existing tooth.
ADVANTAGES OF DENTAL BONDING
Unlike porcelain veneers or dental crowns, dental bonding removes little if any of the original tooth. Dental bonding is a quick and simple process and is also relatively inexpensive. Composite resins are available in many different shades and can be easily matched the natural tooth color of the original tooth improving the appearance of your teeth without damaging your natural tooth structure.
Composite resin is applied and sculpted to obtain the most esthetic form.
The resin is then hardened and polished to a natural finish.

THE COSMETIC DENTAL BONDING PROCESS
Boulder-based cosmetic dentist Dr. David Evans begins by examining and cleaning the tooth that will be bonded. He then rubs the tooth with a mild solution that helps the bonding of the composite resin to the tooth. The composite resin is then applied in several layers (or coats). Each layer is then hardened using a specially designed dental curing light. Once Dr. Evans has placed enough layers of resin on the tooth, the bond is then sculpted for the desired shape and texture.
CARING FOR DENTAL BONDING
Just like your natural teeth, teeth that contain dental bonding should brushed and flossed daily. This is especially important if you are a coffee/tea drinker, or smoke tobacco, all of which can stain dental bonding. It ís also important to know that dental bonding is not quite as durable as porcelain veneers or dental crowns and may need to be retouched or replaced every five to ten years.
