Tooth bonding is a process wherein your dentist applies a composite resin to one or more teeth that have become discolored or physically damaged. The plastic resin will be tooth-colored to blend in, and your teeth can be bonded for numerous reasons. Teeth that are chipped, fractured, discolored, decaying, or simply to close gaps can benefit from composite bonding. This cosmetic solution can be a great supplement to an improved oral care routine. Dental Bonding can be done in a single visit. Placement of a thin plastic coating on the front surface of the teeth can hide teeth gaps as well.
Teeth Bonding Consultation
Before starting the treatment our doctor will discuss if you are a candidate for the cosmetic problems that bonding can resolve, such as decayed teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, gaps, tooth discoloration, “short teeth,” and more. If you have teeth that are extensively damaged your dentist may recommend other restorative or cosmetic procedures that meet more long-term goals.
Dentistry Bonding Care After Treatment
After bonding, care should be taken per the guidelines of your dentist. You should still follow your regular hygiene routine which should consist of brushing at least twice a day and flossing. Bonding can help cover stains, close holes and even adjust warped or distorted teeth. It can be utilized to change the shape or color of a single tooth or if necessary to reconstruct the entire smile.
Teeth Bonding Cost
Costs of dental bonding vary depending on your specific dental conditions, amount of teeth that need cosmetic repair, and additional procedures performed in conjunction.
