Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (PressExposure) May 18, 2011 -- Having a beautiful smile is an amazing thing and can have a significant impact on a persons self-confidence. However, teeth are quite sensitive and with the passage of time can become discolored due to the food and drinks people intake. Drinking tea or coffee on a regular basis, for example, can have an impact on the color of ones teeth as with smoking.
Another common problem many people have is chipped or cracked teeth, which can occur when one least expects it. And it doesnt take a significant amount of pressure for teeth to chip or crack. All it takes is a small piece of clam shell, for example, to make its way into ones food and the result can be a chipped tooth.
Of course, there are many procedures that can brighten teeth or repair chips and cracks, but the majority is quite lengthy and involved. Since many people simply dont have the time to spend hours at the dentist regularly, people tend to overlook these minor flaws, even if their self-confidence is affected.
The days of wishing for a perfect smile are over, though, as Dr. Kevin Rykard of Oklahoma City performs an amazing procedure for his patients that can offer them a wonderful smile quickly. Dental bonding is a process that uses resin to fix discolored, cracked or chipped teeth. During the procedure, the tooth is given a slightly rough surface, to allow the resin to properly adhere to it. Once the resin has been applied, it is shaped, then hardened with the help of a high intensity light and polished to create an amazing smile.
What makes dental bonding so unique, besides the excellent results, is that it doesnt even take one hour per tooth. Its true that one might need a few visits to the Dr. Rykards office if they are having a larger number of teeth worked on.
