Dentist in Hanford, CA highlights the benefits of dental bonding

Think of your smile as a canvas. Your dentist is the artist who can brighten the smile or cover its imperfections with a natural looking-material called composite resin. After brushing the material onto the teeth, flaws can disappear and a new smile can emerge. Dr. Nikunj Raiyani has the artistic skills to transform the smile. He provides various cosmetic enhancements such as dental bonding at his practice, Hanford Family Dental Center, in Hanford, CA.

There are several benefits of dental bonding, also known as direct veneers, including:
  • Comfortable treatment – Most patients are treated without needing anesthetic.
  • Convenient treatment – The treatment can be completed in a single dental appointment. There are no impressions necessary and no need to wait on fabricated restorations from a dental laboratory.
  • Natural-looking results – We use composite resin, which blends nicely with the smile after it is placed on the teeth.
  • Restored teeth – We can perform dental bonding on chipped and cracked teeth, restoring their beauty.
  • Brightened teeth -- Over time, coffee, tea, colas, berries, and sauces can leave unwanted stains. We can transform the smile from dull to radiant.
  • Reshaped teeth – Some patients are not happy with the shape of their teeth. Composite resin can reshape the teeth and deliver the results they desire.
  • Closed gaps between teeth – Many patients prefer to have gaps between the teeth closed. Dental bonding can be the ideal treatment for minor gaps.
  • Straighter looking teeth – When teeth are mildly misaligned, dental bonding may be the solution. There are no metal brackets and wires or lengthy treatments required to deliver the appearance of perfectly straight teeth.
  • Lengthened teeth – The length of teeth can bother patients. Dental bonding can give patients the lengthened teeth they have always wanted.
Do you want to explore your candidacy for dental bonding? If you do, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Raiyani. He will thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, and gums to determine if dental bonding is right for you. For severe tooth damage or discoloration, he may recommend porcelain veneers. The wafer thin shells are used to cover smile imperfections. With proper care and maintenance, porcelain veneers can last up to a decade.

Are tooth imperfections keeping you from smiling for the camera? If they are, we recommend considering dental bonding or porcelain veneers. Dr. Raiyani would be happy to talk with you further about either treatment in a consultation. Call (559) 530-8080.
