Some Salt Lake City people are unhappy with the way their teeth look but many mistakenly assume that cosmetic dentistry is far too pricey to pursue.
Sure, a complete mouth reconstruction can be a significant investment. Consider the cost of dental school and post-graduate training for a master level cosmetic dentist. Consider the expense of individually creating multiple restorations at a high-tech dental lab. Consider the cost of setting up and maintaining a full-service dental practice or laboratory.
Before you give up on improving your smile, however, think about a less celebrated but extremely effective and cost-effective cosmetic dental remedy: dental bonding.
Dental bonding has a wide range of applications for unsightly teeth. Bonding can repair a tooth that is damaged, chipped, short, or discolored. It can also repair teeth that have gaps in between them.
How does the dental bonding procedure work?
First, your tooth will be slightly (but painlessly) roughed up to help the resin adhere. Your dentist will use a shade guide to confirm the precise color of the composite to match the existing teeth. Your dentist will apply liquid composite resin on the tooth, layer by layer. He or she will carefully shape and polish it before it hardens. The tooth is then covered with a conditioning liquid that helps with adhesion.
Once the resin is bonded, it is further molded to the accurate shape for your bite and appearance. A laser helps rapidly bond the resin in place as it hardens. Further shaping and polishing, if necessary, complete the procedure. The result is a beautiful smile.
Bonding is a simple and cost-effective method for perfecting your smile. Call today at to set up an appointment at 801-938-8855.
