Whenever you look into the mirror and grin at your reflection, do you like what you see? Many people may struggle with self-esteem issues and if you are one of the fortunate ones who can see past slight imperfections, consider yourself lucky. For some, the wrong shade of white can cause high levels of anxiety. For others, they are quite satisfied with their smile and want it to stay that way for a while. Dental bonding procedures can easily become something that can either enhance or maintain the standard you already have. At David Crumpton, DDS, we want you to feel good about your teeth and know how to help you do it.
Bonding over Your Smile
It is very common for many of us to reveal our teeth during strong emotions, which means it can occur not only with joy but also with annoyance or frustration. For many who lead high-impact and busy lives, the ability to multi-task and handle stressful situations with grace can be a source of pride. There can be many things on our mind daily, but for those who choose to grin and bear it, you might as well look good at the same time. With cosmetic bonding, you can easily have a brand-new smile that you can be proud to show off and give you one less thing to worry about.

Why Bonding Is Right for You
So, what is bonding, you ask? That is an excellent question. Dental bonding is the process of covering your affected tooth with a coating of resin that can mimic the appearance of flawless enamel. This means that if you are looking to improve your appearance due to obvious gaps, we can create a solution for that. Many smokers or coffee drinkers may have stubborn yellowing tooth enamel, but with dental bonding, we can help make them a shade whiter. Even if you have cracks, chips, pits, or holes in your teeth, you should know that bonding can help with all of that, too!
You would not believe how quickly you can give yourself a boost of confidence with dental bonding. First, we carefully examine your teeth so we can assess the proper shade so that the bond can match your tooth color exactly. Then, we gently etch your tooth with a bit of phosphoric acid to give it some texture so that the bond can adhere better. Once the resin is applied, we will shape it to look just like the rest of your teeth. Next, we cure it with a special ultraviolet light to set the bond, then polish the tooth. The result is an incredible smile that looks perfectly natural in less than an hour!
Cosmetic bonding can be a complete game-changer for those who work with the public or people face-to-face regularly. When others can see how much effort you put into taking good care of yourself, they may also understand the amount of hard work you put into everything that you do.
