Contact our dental office for a consultation if you want to address your cosmetic imperfections. We will discuss your specific needs and create a custom treatment plan for you.
Dental Bonding Treatment
To begin, we clean the teeth and remove a small part of the enamel. This creates a good surface for the bonding material and does not damage the tooth. Then, we sculpt the biocompatible bonding material to the tooth’s surface. We mold the material onto the tooth, ensuring it is in the right shape and shade. Finally, we use a special light to cure the bonding material to the tooth.
Directly after you receive your bonding treatment, refrain from eating or drinking foods and beverages that easily stain, including coffee, tea, and berries. We also recommend that patients avoid sticky or hard-to-chew foods that can easily damage the bonding material. When bonded teeth are cared for, they stay bright and blend in with the natural smile. Bonded teeth can be gently brushed, just like natural teeth.
Why Choose Dental Bonding?
Bonding is one of the most easily accessible treatment options available. It’s also one of the few that’s completely removable and reversible. Almost everyone is eligible for dental bonding treatment. Even children can get dental bonding on their primary teeth, because it’s something that’s not permanent. We often recommend this treatment for children who have chipped or broken their teeth on the playground.
Bonding is extremely affordable, too. Because it’s a temporary solution, it doesn’t come with the cost of something like porcelain veneers. If you’re not sure how you feel about veneers or another restoration, dental bonding can be a good test run. You can try out a full restoration, but not have to commit to it permanently. Because it’s similar to porcelain veneers, it can treat many of the same issues.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that cover the front and sides of a tooth. Bonding material is moldable and malleable. It can be adapted to fix many problems in different areas. One benefit over porcelain veneers is that you aren’t required to cover the entire tooth. If you just have a small chip or break, that area is the only area that needs to be covered with bonding material.
