For many Vista Dental Care patients who have several minor cosmetic flaws they want to correct, we may be able to provide dental bonding as a viable, same day treatment alternative to porcelain veneers. Dental bonding uses the same composite resin material we use to create tooth-colored fillings. The resin can be applied directly to the flawed part of the smile concealing cracks, stains, and other issues. Then, we use a curing light to harden the bonding material into position before smoothing and polishing the treated area. Once in position, dental bonding can last for many years, but unlike porcelain veneers, bonding may be subject to staining. Contact us to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation in our Sparks office. We’ll examine your smile carefully and work with you to determine whether or not bonding is the best option to reach your smile transformation goals.
