It’s common to have flaws in your smile that you aren’t totally comfortable with. Luckily, there’s a cosmetic dentistry procedure available for you. Your dentist, Dr. Curt Posey, in Fresno, CA, can help you choose from multiple procedures to get the smile that you’ve always wanted.

Different Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Depending on what flaws you struggle with, your dentist in Fresno, CA, can recommend a cosmetic procedure that can help give you a nearly perfect smile. Some common types of cosmetic dentistry procedures include:

  • Porcelain Veneers- If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities have such perfect smiles, the answer is usually porcelain veneers. Veneers are porcelain shells that are put over your teeth to correct most issues that you may struggle with. Your dentist will use veneers to cover any yellowing, crookedness, misalignment, cracks, or chips in your smile. The porcelain is also fairly stain-resistant and is easy to care for.
  • Teeth Whitening- Over time, it’s common for teeth to get stained or yellowed. It may feel embarrassing to show off your dull smile and you may want to brighten your teeth up. Professional teeth whitening is the best way to give yourself the bright smile that you deserve. Whitening can be done in-office by your dentist or through a take-home kit. With the in-office whitening, you should see results almost instantly after treatment is done.
  • Dental Bonding- If your teeth are chipped or cracked, bonding can help fill these gaps in. Bonding is done with a tooth-colored material and will be almost completely invisible to others.

There is a simple, non-invasive way to fix common dental imperfections.

You may imagine that cosmetic dentistry has to require a lot of time and invasive care in order to get the smile you want but it’s time you dental bondingheard about dental bonding. While there are no magical fixes, from the office of our Fresno dentist Dr. Curt Posey, find out the many ways dental bonding can improve your smile.

What is dental bonding?

The same tooth-colored material used to fill a cavity is what our Fresno, CA cosmetic dentist will also use to improve the overall color, size or shape of a tooth (or multiple teeth). This moldable, plastic resin is applied over the tooth and then reshaped to hide common issues such as discolorations, chips and cracks, and even gaps between teeth.

What does getting dental bonding entail?

What makes dental bonding such a great method for improving the look of your smile is that it can often be done in just one visit and is not invasive.

Once your teeth are thoroughly cleaned, we will apply a painless conditioning liquid over your teeth. This liquid makes it easier for the bonding material to stick to the tooth as we mold and sculpt the plastic resin.

Before the resin is placed over the tooth we will match it to the shade of your tooth so that you won’t even be able to tell which tooth or teeth were treated with dental bonding. Once the resin is perfectly shaped we will direct a dental laser over the tooth to harden the resin in place. The tooth is given a good polish and then your smile is good to go!

If you are ready to find out if your smile could benefit from dental bonding then call our Fresno, CA dental office today. Turn to Dr. Posey for all of your dental needs.
