What You Need to Know About Dental Bonding
Most of us have seen the perfect smiles of celebrities and wondered how they do it. One method to achieve such beautiful teeth is dental bonding. In this process, Dr. Robertson uses a dental material to change the color or shape of an existing tooth. Thanks to the dental bonding procedure, Dr. Robertson can repair teeth with defects, increase the size of teeth, or whatever else is necessary to achieve a beautiful result. After applying the dental material, Dr. Robertson uses a special light to harden the bond between the dental material and your natural tooth.
Dental Bonding is Simple
Another great benefit to bonding is the fact that it is a relatively simple procedure – one that creates very little if any discomfort for the patient. Bonding requires very little drilling and is usually performed in a single visit to our Elgin, TX office without the need for any anesthetic whatsoever.
Care and Maintenance of Bonded Teeth
Unlike some other dental material (such as that used in fillings and crowns, for example), the material used in dental bonding can be stained much the same as a natural tooth. That means that if you indulge in habits that might produce stains on your teeth – such as smoking or drinking too much coffee or red wine – your bonded teeth might become stained.
Bonded teeth are also somewhat susceptible to damage, so you should avoid chewing on extremely hard foods (such as ice cubes or hard candy, for example). With proper care and attention, dental bonding should last for quite some time, but the exact longevity will vary depending on the patient’s habits.
