Cosmetic Bonding: Knoxville, Tennessee Dentist, explains the benefits of this customized treatment
Do you have chips, broken teeth, small gaps, or other aesthetic issues with your teeth? If you have been searching for “cosmetic dentistry near me” and live in the Knoxville, Tennessee area, the team at Knoxville Smiles at Malone & Costa Dentistry is here to help! For many patients, cosmetic bonding can be just the right solution. This customized chairside procedure is an easy, painless, and affordable way to enhance your smile. Dr. Stephen Malone and Dr. Michael Costa also use cosmetic bonding as a “Trial Smile” option for patients who are considering porcelain veneers or other more permanent solutions for their teeth.
What is cosmetic bonding?
During cosmetic bonding, our dentists use composite resin (the same material used in tooth-colored fillings) to adjust the shape, size, and color of one or more teeth. The composite material is placed onto your teeth, molded into a natural-looking shape, and then cured with a special light for a durable finish that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Patients love cosmetic bonding because:
- It is an affordable option that you can fit into your budget
- It can be reversed later on if needed because it does not require the removal of tooth enamel
- It is 100% customized for your unique smile, including the shading and shape of the bonding
- Provides excellent results, transforming your smile in just one visit to the dentist
Am I a good candidate?
Cosmetic bonding can be a great solution for people who have minor cosmetic issues with their smile that they would like to correct, such as small chips or cracks, discoloration, small gaps, worn-down teeth, or unevenly sized or shaped teeth. For people with more widespread or severe issues in their smile, other treatments such as porcelain veneers or orthodontics may be the best option. Our dentists will perform an in-depth evaluation and consultation to learn about your goals for your smile and help you determine whether cosmetic bonding is the right choice for you. If you opt for porcelain veneers, we can use cosmetic bonding as a way for you to “trial” your new smile so you can be assured that your new smile is exactly what you want.
