Cosmetic bonding beautifies smiles in Boise, ID
Not every patient needs or wants premier cosmetic dental procedures. Bonding is an affordable solution for a variety of tooth imperfections and repairs. Many of the lovely smiles you see in the Boise, ID area have had a little help from cosmetic bonding services at Horizon Dental Group – Dr. Sarah Enright & Associates.
What is cosmetic bonding?
Bonding gets its name from the chemical process of bonding a restorative material to tooth structure. The pliable composite resin can be molded to virtually any shape, restoring or refining contours of a tooth. It is hardened with a special light for strength and durability. A cosmetic bonding procedure typically takes an hour or less per tooth, and often numbing is not necessary. A bonded tooth requires no unusual home care – just brush and floss normally.
Are you a patient who prefers a holistic approach to dental care, with concern for toxicity and compatibility of materials placed into your mouth? Composite resin is BPA-safe, and sensitivity or allergic reaction is extremely rare. The material is biomimetic, meaning it mimics the structure and function of the natural tooth. It expands and contracts at a similar rate, and does not cause unusual wear to opposing dentition. Bonding does not transfer heat or cold to sensitive nerves or react with metals in other dental work.
