Maybe You Don’t Need Veneers…

An imperfect smile may make you self-conscious. If so, you have good reason. A study by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry found that an attractive smile makes a person seem more successful, intelligent, and friendly. Cosmetic dental problems, like small chips, odd spaces between teeth, or permanent stains are often addressed with porcelain veneers and crowns. Minor imperfections, however, might be repaired with bonding.

Cosmetic bonding is less invasive than veneers or crowns. The procedure usually requires little or no tooth reduction. In some cases, anesthetic isn’t necessary.

The material used for cosmetic bonding is the same tooth-colored resin that we place for white fillings. Dr. Seal custom-shades the resin to match a tooth’s enamel, so the bonding looks completely natural. In just one visit, bonding can close gaps, cover stains, or repair chips. Before making a final decision on veneers or crowns, ask Dr. Seal about cosmetic bonding.

Dr. Seal will evaluate you to determine if you’re a candidate for cosmetic bonding, or if another cosmetic dental procedure would be better suited to your case. Call Dr. Greg Seal Prosthodontics today at 214.361.0883 to schedule a consultation.
