Direct Bonding Dentist – Angier, NC

Invest in a Beautiful Smile with Cosmetic Bonding

When you look in the mirror, does your attention instantly turn to your imperfect teeth? If you’re feeling the weight of embarrassment, you can invest in a confident smile with the help on your cosmetic dentist in Angier, Dr. Gong. Dental bonding is a minimally invasive solution to drastically enhance your teeth. The composite resin material instantly improves the color, size, shape, and proportion of a tooth to give you the picture-perfect smile you deserve.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding goes by many different names. No matter what you call it, you’ll enjoy natural-looking results. A composite resin material is customized to match your enamel. It’s sculpted into the ideal shape to resolve a variety of cosmetic imperfections, like chips or cracks. It’s a patient-preferred treatment because it’s minimally invasive and creates drastic results after just one appointment.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Bonding?

If you’re unhappy with your smile, you might be a candidate for dental bonding if you have minor aesthetic concerns, such as:

  • Dark tooth discoloration or stains
  • Shorter than average teeth
  • Chipped, cracked, or abnormally shaped teeth
  • Exposed tooth roots
  • Tooth decay
  • Minor gaps between teeth

We’ll perform a thorough consultation and discuss your desired results to determine if you’re a candidate for direct bonding in Angier.

What Can I Expect?

After your initial consultation, we’ll schedule you for your procedure. On average, you can expect your appointment to take 30 to 60 minutes depending on how many teeth are being treated. If you’re fixing multiple teeth, we may recommend more than one visit.

First, your teeth are cleaned and dried before applying a weak acid to your tooth. This opens the pores in your enamel to ensure a strong bond. The acid is rinsed from your tooth before the resin material is applied to it, which has been previously customized to match your enamel. After the resin is sculpted into the ideal shape, a special dental light is used to quickly harden it. Your tooth is smoothed and polished to put the final touch on your new beautiful smile.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Your new smile can last for a decade or longer with the right aftercare. You can help to protect your investment by keeping a few tips in mind:

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste to clean your teeth twice a day.
  • Use a high-quality dental floss to clean in between each tooth nightly.
  • Visit your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.
  • Wear an athletic mouthguard if you play sports.
  • Limit your consumption of stain-causing factors, like coffee, smoking, and berries.
  • Don’t use your teeth as tools.
  • Don’t chew on inedible objects.
  • Treat grinding or clenching of your teeth.
