What is dental or tooth bonding?
One of the most popular and cost-efficient cosmetic dental procedures, tooth bonding or simply bonding is a corrective treatment employed by dentists all around the world for addressing a variety of different dental problems. At Arden Park Dental Care, our highly experienced and reputed dental surgeon, Dr. Shahnaz Formoli employs her years of expertise and technical know how to perform highly efficient bonding procedures for extraordinary results.
Bonding may be described as a procedure in which a tooth-colored composite resin such as plastic is applied directly onto the damaged tooth for repairing chips, cracks, decays, fractures or any unsightly discolorations. The resin is adhered to the tooth with the help of a high-quality adhesive and hardened with a special high intensity curing light that ‘bonds’ the resin to the tooth.
What to expect?
Dental bonding does not often require the use of anesthesia, except in cases where bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth. The Doctor will examine and color match a resin that fits perfectly with your tooth color. The bonding procedure at Arden Park Dental Care can usually be completed in one visit. Proper care is important to maintain your newly restored teeth after now having addressed chipped, discolored or stained, or simply decayed teeth.
Avoid eating hard candy, ice cubes, or similar foods. Chewing your nails, pen caps or similar objects can also shorten the lifespan of your new teeth. Proper care of your teeth, regular brushing and flossing, and regular cleanings every 6 months will ensure you get plenty of mileage and use out of your newly restored smile.
