Dental bonding is a leading affordable cosmetic procedure that is full of restorative benefits. Using composite resins, Dr. Castro can repair your chipped front teeth or hide minor aesthetic defects.
Direct composite bonding is used to recreate a smile in an additive manner, where little or no tooth reduction is needed. Direct bonding, in the hands of a skilled operator, is less costly than porcelain veneers and crowns and can be long-lasting with proper maintenance.
Bonding is a perfect solution for treating minor cosmetic flaws. At your preliminary consultation, you will see exactly how dental bonding is applicable to you. Candidates for this procedure usually have good oral health, but their smile needs corrections because teeth are chipped, discolored, crooked, gapped or misaligned.
Patients can opt for transitional bonding that is used for anything from a mock-up to a full-mouth rehabilitation. The transitional bonding allows the patients to transition into more permanent dentistry as he or she can afford.
When you have gaps between your teeth, this can cause issues with overall smile aesthetics. A gap between your two print teeth can lead to self-consciousness, for instance, as can gaps between your other prominent teeth.
In such cases, you may be reticent to smile, speak, or laugh, which can affect first impressions and social interactions.
Dental Bonding for Very Minor Gaps
If you have a very minor tooth gap that is purely cosmetic in nature, a good option to consider is dental bonding. Dental bonding uses a tooth-colored resin that is painted onto the tooth in order to build out tooth structure and fill the gap. The bonding material looks like natural tooth structure and can accomplish a great deal.
Porcelain Veneers for Cosmetic Spacing Issues
Porcelain veneers are also a great option for minor gaps that are cosmetic in nature. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental ceramic that are fixed in place over a tooth's front surface. These shells will help mask imperfections, improving the overall look and size of a tooth. The porcelain veneers blend in seamlessly with natural tooth structure as well, meaning that no one will realize that a veneer is place, even when up close.
Orthodontic Care Can Address More Serious Gaps
For major gaps between your teeth, the ideal option to consider is orthodontic treatment. The use of braces or Invisalign aligners can help shift the position of misaligned teeth, closing gaps and helping address issues with crowding and asymmetry as well. The ideal orthodontic approach will be determined by your dentist based on your age, the severity of your spacing issues, and other factors.
Which treatment is ideal for me?
The ideal treatment for you and your needs will depend on the nature of your dental problem. Cosmetic tooth gaps are better dealt with by bonding and veneers, while tooth gaps that impact the overall alignment of your teeth are best treated through orthodontic care.
Repair the Side Effects of Teeth Grinding with Cosmetic Dentistry
Whether it’s politics, parenting, or work that has you unconsciously grinding your teeth day and night, stopping this involuntary movement is the first battle. TMJ treatment is easily accomplished with a customized oral appliance or bite guard. But then you may discover that, even though your grinding has ceased, your teeth have been left in poor shape because of the habit. Cosmetic dentistry can help.
Smile Makeovers After Teeth Grinding
After the source of your teeth grinding has been addressed and treated, your cosmetic dentist will focus on correcting the damage teeth grinding created. Some of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments for teeth grinding patients include:
Dental crowns: The extreme forces of grinding and clenching teeth can lead to broken, chipped, or cracked teeth. But these solutions are not difficult to repair with porcelain tooth crowns, which can be used to make teeth uniform and even. Dental crowns, in fact, are one of the most durable and long-lasting cosmetic dentistry solutions.
Porcelain veneers: The go-to cosmetic dentistry solution for repairing teeth that have been worn down from tooth grinding, porcelain veneers recreate the natural look of teeth. Teeth that have been subject to grinding or clenching are usually similar in length and worn straight across. Porcelain veneers can correct these issues, making teeth the proper length, size, and color that will make your smile look amazing.
Cosmetic bonding: You don’t want teeth that have already been damaged to compromise the integrity of neighboring teeth. A simple tooth bonding repair will fix jagged or chipped teeth due to grinding so that your smile look like new with the least amount of invasiveness possible.
What Will Happen If You Avoid Teeth Grinding Treatment?
Eventually, if you leave your teeth grinding problem unchecked, this habit will just continue to damage your teeth. The wear and tear can move quickly once your tooth’s enamel has been completely stripped and the dentin layer of the tooth becomes exposed. Plus, opening that up to air is just downright painful.
Your oral health is important – you want to look good because your smile is stunning, but you also want to have a healthy mouth and gums

Whitening your teeth with a cosmetic dentist is a completely safe procedure. Some patient experienced discomfort which varies from person to person and depends on the method used. In most cases, adults experience very minor
discomfort that lasts 1-3 days after the treatment.
Is Teeth Whitening Permanent?
Teeth whitening is not permanent. It can generally last from a few months up to three years, however, this depends on your individual circumstances. The effect of the treatment will be impacted if you frequently smoke or drink dark liquids such as red wine, tea, or coffee.
Because teeth whitening is not permanent, you will need to maintain your bright smile with continued treatments. For regular patients, this upkeep can be costly in long terms
Who Can't Have Teeth Whitening Treatment?
There are potential risks associated with teeth whitening treatment, so it is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women. It is similarly not recommended if you are allergic to peroxide. If you have receding gums you may be more likely to experience tooth sensitivity.

Tooth loss can cause a number of problems ranging from oral health issues to self-consciousness and poor self-esteem. Fortunately, there are several restoration options available in cosmetic dentistry that allow patients
to replace a missing tooth with a durable prosthetic and enjoy a better quality of life. One of these options is a dental bridge, which fills a gap between two adjacent teeth by anchoring a false tooth to these surrounding
teeth. Patients who need restorative dental treatment after they’ve lost a tooth may be excellent candidates for dental bridges.
A dental bridge is designed to replace one or more missing teeth. It is an artificial tooth that is secured into place and supported by surrounding natural teeth. Fortunately, a bridge looks and feels like a natural tooth and can allow patients to chew and eat normally. In addition, a dental bridge may help patients speak without any issues, as bridges can fill in the gaps between teeth affecting positively the tongue’s placement and how patients sound.

Instant Orthodontics - Straight Teeth Without Braces
If you have crooked teeth and don't want to wear braces for years and retainers for even more years then there is a very good alternative. No, I am not talking about wearing Invisalign for years either and retainers after that. Some of us just don't want to pick food out of our teeth for years. We want instant orthodontics.
Instant Orthodontics is not a misnomer. It’s as simple as braces versus porcelain veneers. Braces can take 2 to 3 years to straighten your teeth. Porcelain veneers can give you that same look in as little as 2 to 3 weeks. Instead of wearing braces, we shape your teeth and apply a thin porcelain veneer. The result is a beautiful smile showing off your new, straight teeth.
Instant Orthodontics can also give you a brighter smile than you’ve been able to achieve with brushing or bleaching. Porcelain veneers are the color we love to see when people smile. And we love to see people smile!
