Do you have gaps between your teeth? Do you have exposed tooth roots that are causing you pain? Perhaps you have a cracked tooth that is unsightly and unpleasant.
Tooth bonding can be used as both a cosmetic dental treatment and a restorative treatment to repair or protect teeth. Unlike veneers, tooth bonding can be done quickly and in office, with less expense to you.
How Tooth Bonding Works
The tooth bonding procedure is relatively quick and simple and is performed in our office.
Your dentist will first choose a tooth-colored resin or other composite plastic material that best matches your existing tooth. They will carefully abrade the surface of your tooth so they can then directly apply the resin to the tooth. Next, your doctor will shape and blend the material for a flawless, natural-looking restoration.
Immediately following the procedure, you will want to avoid coffees, teas, and cigarettes as they can stain the resin, leaving an unnatural coloration. Talk to your dentist about the best aftercare for your specific teeth.
