Do you have injured teeth? Are there small chips and cracks in your tooth enamel? Dental bonding may be the right cosmetic dental treatment for you. Teeth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry service that we provide at Perfect Smiles in Doylestown, PA. During a dental consultation, we will examine your teeth and discuss your cosmetic goals. Taking your dental history, goals, and current oral health needs into account, we will create a treatment plan for you. This plan acts as the blueprint for your bonding treatment.
What Does Dental Bonding Do?
Dental bonding may be used to:
- Cover small gaps between teeth
- Add structure to chipped or cracked teeth
- Reshape misshapen teeth
- Cover deep tooth stains and discoloration
Tooth bonding has many advantages. With dental bonding treatment, patients can:
- Improve the look of their smiles
- Create straighter and more uniform teeth
- Brighten the tooth enamel
- Improve bite function
If you want to create a brighter and more uniform smile, contact our office. We will work with you to customize your treatment.
Dental Bonding Treatment and Care
To begin the bonding process, we will prepare the teeth to ensure that the bonding material adheres to the tooth. We will etch into the tooth enamel and apply a conditioning liquid to the tooth. Then, we will use a shade guide for the composite resin to select the correct color to match your tooth. We apply the tooth-colored resin to the prepared tooth, molding and sculpting it into the right shape. Then, to harden the material, we will use a special light that cures the bonded tooth. Finally, we will trim and polish the bonding material for a natural sheen. Dental bonding treatment takes about 30 to 60 minutes for each tooth.
Directly following the treatment, you should stay away from foods and beverages that stain the teeth. Avoid tea, coffee, wine, berries, and tomatoes. You may gently brush bonded teeth using non-abrasive toothpaste. Remember to floss between your teeth to remove decay-causing bacteria.
