Coalinga, CA residents ask, "Will cosmetic bonding improve the appearance and health of my smile?"

Beautiful Smile with Teeth, Dr. Nikunj Raiyani, Lemoore with Hanford Family Dental Center Addressing misaligned, misshaped, or broken teeth does more than enhance the appearance of your smile. It improves the health of your mouth and restores the confidence you need to smile brightly. Cosmetic teeth bonding is an important service offered by Dr. Nikunj Raiyani of the Hanford Family Dental Center, to Coalinga, CA patients. While many people believe that cosmetic services are only important for a person’s appearance, in many cases they are also critical to the patient’s dental health. Some cosmetic treatments improve a patient’s smile, and restore proper oral health and function. For example, patients may ask Dr. Raiyani to fix teeth that are chipped, broken, or cracked because they don’t like the appearance. However, the repair can also keep the patient from experiencing sensitivity to hot and cold, and prevent further damage.

What is cosmetic bonding?

Composite bonding is a procedure that adheres safe, tooth-colored material to enamel, using a special light. There are several advantages:
  • It is the easiest and least expensive option for cosmetic dental procedures.
  • Little preparation or anesthesia is needed. Unless several teeth are being bonded, the process can be performed during one office visit. Applying the bonding material and using the UV light to harden it is a straightforward and pain-free procedure.
  • Very little enamel needs to be removed prior to placing composite bonding.
  • Bonded teeth do not require special care. Daily brushing and flossing, along with regular checkups and cleanings, are all it takes to care for bonded teeth.
  • The lifespan of bonding materials can be up to 10 years, depending on the amount of bonding that took place and whether you have habits that can damage the material, such as biting on hard items.
