If you’re interested in having a cosmetic dental procedure done, you should compare your options. Talking to Dr. Gade at Dr. Teeth Dental Care can help you to find the right procedure for your needs. You deserve to have a smile that makes you look and feel your best!
One of your options is bonding. Bonding repairs teeth and improves their appearance. Bonding is a very common procedure that many people have done.
Bonding might work for some people, while others would benefit from another cosmetic procedure. By working with a dentist you trust, you can ensure that you get your teeth back into great shape.
You might not be familiar with how bonding works. A little bit of background information can help to put your mind at ease.
With bonding, composite resin is used. Prior to the procedure, our dentist will select a color of composite resin that looks similar to your natural teeth.
The next step is to roughen the surface of your teeth. When the surface is roughened, the composite resin will bond more easily.
Finally, our dentist applies the composite resin to your teeth. It will also be shaped. To help the material harden, a laser may be used. Before you leave your appointment, our dentist will polish your teeth.
In most cases, anesthesia is not needed. This is a quick and easy procedure that should take less than an hour.
Before you have bonding done, you should know that it is not permanent. There are ways to make the effects of bonding last longer, but it will not last long-term, even if you take good care of your teeth.
It’s important to practice good oral hygiene habits. In addition, be sure to follow any suggestions from our dentist. Our dentist can tell you how to care for your bonded teeth and will help you if you experience any issues.
