What Is Tooth Bonding?
Bonding is a malleable plastic resin material that your dentist bonds to your tooth. The bonding is molded into the desired shape while on the tooth allowing for a more precise outcome.
What Issues Does Tooth Bonding Address?
- To repair decayed teeth
- To repair chipped or cracked teeth
- To improve the appearance of discolored teeth
- To close spaces between teeth
- To make teeth look longer
- To change the shape of teeth
- To protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed when gums recede
Is tooth Bonding A Permanent Solution?
Dental bonding is a semi-permanent solution for repairing minor damage or cosmetic blemishes that impact the appearance of the smile. Dental bonding can help to restore a tooth’s natural aesthetic without the financial or long-term commitment of dental veneers.
Claremont Dental Institute provides dental bonding for children, teen, and adult patients. Our dentists integrate dental technology with their advanced skill set providing patients with natural-looking results that improve oral health and boost self-confidence.
Benefits Of Tooth Bonding
The dental bonding treatment is simple, quick and effective. Patients are usually able to receive treatment with only a local anesthetic for their optimal comfort. Typically, patients can have the appearance of their tooth restored in just a single visit to our office.
- Little to no removal of enamel, retaining the health and natural structure of your tooth.
- Less extensive procedure than restorations like porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
- Can usually be completed in one appointment.
Does Bonding Require Special Aftercare?
Bonded teeth do not require special care. Simply follow good oral hygiene practices. Brush teeth at least twice a day, floss at least once a day, rinse with an antiseptic mouthwash once or twice a day, and visit Claremont Dental Institute for regular professional check-ups and cleanings. Because bonding material can chip, it is important to avoid such habits as biting fingernails; chewing on pens, ice, or other hard food objects.
