A Faster Route to a Straighter Smile

Cosmetic Bonding Bangor ME | Maine Family Dental Practice

When you found out you were passed over for a promotion again, you finally asked why. You were told that it's because you're not approachable, and that was when you decided to take action. You tend to hide your smile because your teeth overlap and you've always felt self-conscious about it. This must be why your co-workers perceive you as unhappy or unapproachable. You've decided it's time to do something about your teeth and you are visiting your cosmetic dentist in Bangor to learn more about your options.

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding can be a great choice for patients who have small repairs to make to their smiles. It's efficient, as it can typically be done during one appointment. It's cost-effective, as it's one of the less expensive cosmetic treatments. It's also non-invasive, as it doesn't require the loss of any tooth structure to complete.

Composite resin is custom shaped and shaded to repair small imperfections such as:

  • Small chips and fractures
  • Root exposure due to recession
  • Stains or discoloration
  • Slight misalignment issues
  • Misshapen teeth or size discrepancies

This is the same material used for dental fillings, and it adds strength and longevity since it is bonded directly to your teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are another great option for restoring your smile. Veneers are thin layers of porcelain bonded directly to your existing tooth structure, and they can cover many of the same imperfections that cosmetic bonding does. The difference is that a porcelain veneer can be designed to completely change the shape, shade, and size of your tooth. This allows you to completely enhance the appearance of your teeth and create the smile you've always wanted.

Veneers may also be able to take care of certain misalignment issues saving you the time and hassle of wearing braces for orthodontic treatment. Because veneers can typically be completed in only two to three appointments, this allows you to enjoy your dazzling new smile much faster.

When you have so many great cosmetic options to choose from, there's really no reason to live with a compromised smile any longer! Feel free to email or call our office to learn more about our option!
