Walnut Creek Dentist | How Important is Cosmetic Dentistry?


Many individuals assume that brushing and flossing are the most effective ways to maintain good oral hygiene and an ideal smile. However, Drs. Barmby and Frick highly encourage their patients to invest in cosmetic dentistry procedures that include teeth whitening, teeth bonding, dental veneers, and implants. When an individual’s teeth are suffering from decay, it is vital that the proper measure be taken to ensure that the permanent loss of teeth does not occur. Cosmetic dentistry not only refers to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, but includes the enhancement in the function and durability of teeth.

Drs. Barmby and Frick are trained professionals with the years of expertise needed to preform cosmetic dental procedures. Drs. Barmby and Frick also guarantee that each cosmetic dental procedure is unique to fit the condition of the patient. For example, teeth whitening may be an option for patients with discolored teeth, while dental bonding may be considered for patients with chipped or cracked teeth. For this reason, Drs. Barmby and Frick stress the importance of cosmetic dentistry because it drastically improves the look and feel of a patient’s teeth.

Bonding is a great way to improve your smile! | Walnut Creek, CA

Bonding is a great way for you to regain confidence in your smile if you have chipped or broken one (or more) of your teeth. Bonding is a tooth colored restoration process of directly applying a tooth-colored composite to your tooth. Once the composite is applied, our dentist will sculpt and shape it to make a perfect looking tooth. A high-intensity ultraviolet light is then used to harden the composite and is finished off by a fine polishing.

Not only is bonding useful for chipped and broken teeth, but it is great for stained teeth that are resistant to professional whitening treatment.

Although bonding does not last as long as veneers or crowns; with proper care, bonding composites can last for years.

For more information on bonding or other tooth colored restoration procedures contact Walnut Creek Prosthodontics at 925-934-5526.
