Everyone wants to look picture-perfect for their wedding. Even if you don't have much time left before your wedding, you can still make a substantial impact on your smile by opting for dental bonding procedures. In this procedure, tooth-colored resin is adhered onto the surface of your teeth in an attempt to alter their shape, color, and size. The results will last approximately 10 years. There's plenty of different changes that you can make on a whim using dental bonding that can improve the appearance of your smile. Here are 3 specific differences you can make.
Look Younger by Adding More Length to Your Teeth
You can easily shave several years off of your face by using dental bonding to lengthen the shape of your teeth. Rectangular teeth that are approximately 10 – 12 mm in length with rounded edges tend to make a person appear younger and more spirited. As you age, your teeth will become shorter and shorter from regular wear. You can expect to lose anywhere from 1 to 5 mm of length. Adding just a little bit more length to your teeth with dental bonding is easy and not time-consuming at all.
Fill in Gaps for a Fuller of Smile
Consider how well positioned or shaped your teeth are before making a decision. If your teeth tend to be rather small and there are plenty of gaps between each tooth, you can remove the gaps with dental bonding. The dentist will simply use the ceramic resin to fill in the gaps between each tooth in an attempt to make each teeth appear just a tad bit wider. Depending on the size of the gaps, your dentist might recommend adding a bit more length to the teeth as well if the width of each tooth has been noticeably increased.
Remove Permanent Stains and Discoloration for a Brighter Smile
Teeth-whitening procedures cannot whiten and brighten every tooth. Stains that extend far below the surface of the tooth can be difficult to reach and cover. As a result, professional teeth-whitening procedures may not be able to do much for them. However, you can still have a bright and white smile on the day of your wedding with little hassle by simply covering up the discoloration via dental bonding. A thin layer of tooth-colored resin is applied on top of the discolored tooth in an attempt to conceal the discoloration.
Dental bonding procedures don't take a lot of time or hassle at all. They're easy to complete and can make a huge difference and impact on your overall smile. You can get these procedures just days before the wedding. For more information on dental bonding, contact a dentist such as Richard M Holmes DMD PA.
