What Is Cosmetic Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding involves the use of a special, putty-like material known as composite resin, which is composed of tiny particles of glass and acrylic. Dr. Tad Morgan will apply it to your teeth and mold it to correct your problem teeth’s size and shape. The material can even be custom shaded to correct stains and blend in with the rest of your tooth enamel.
What Problems Can Bonding Fix?
Bonding is especially effective at correcting minor imperfections, like:
While bonding may seem like a purely cosmetic treatment, it can actually improve your oral health. This is because even a minor chip or crack can create a pathway for bacteria to gain easy access to the delicate center of your tooth, which may result in a painful infection that requires extensive treatment like a root canal. Cosmetic bonding repairs not just the appearance of your smile, but your oral health as well.
What Is the Bonding Procedure Like?
Getting cosmetic bonding is a fast and painless procedure. It can even typically be completed in one visit to our Bullard office. First, we’ll smooth out any sharp or jagged edges of your tooth. Next, we’ll work with you to select the shade of composite resin that will either correct stains or blend in perfectly with the rest of your enamel.
After that, our team will etch the surface of your affected tooth to help the resin better adhere to it. We then apply the resin in layers until the tooth is built up to your liking. The resin is hardened into place with a curing light. Lastly, we’ll polish the tooth, make any final adjustments if need be, and then send you on your way!
What Are the Benefits of Bonding?
Bonding comes with many advantages, including:
- Cosmetic bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedures.
- If you properly care for your bonded teeth, your results can last up to a decade.
- Natural-looking results. No one should be able to tell that you got dental work done.
- Bonding can correct multiple smile flaws in just one procedure.
- Conservative treatment. Compared to other procedures like veneers or crowns, bonding removes very little, if any, of your natural tooth structure.
How Do You Care for Your Bonded Teeth?
Fortunately, maintaining your bonded teeth is quite similar to caring for your natural teeth. Keep up with your regular oral hygiene routine of daily brushing and flossing. Also remember to visit your dentist in Bullard every six months for a checkup to ensure that your bonding is still in good condition. Finally, keep consumption of staining drinks and foods, like wine, coffee, and berries, to a minimum to keep your results looking natural.
