Are there any small chips on any of your teeth? Do have any discoloration or maybe a slight misalignment? Do not worry; you are not alone. Even those patients who have healthy gums and teeth can get dissatisfied with the cosmetic appearance of their smiles.
For dental bonding, it uses a flexible, tooth-colored material also known as a composite resin that will repair some mild tooth damage. It is the low-cost alternative to that of porcelain veneers. At Peak Dental in Pflugerville, we have been improving our patient’s smiles with cosmetic dentistry for a long time.
If you are not happy with the shape or color of one of your teeth to its relationship to the teeth that surround it, then expensive reconstruction work should not be necessary. Dental bonding is an affordable, but simple cosmetic dentistry process offered by Peak Dental at Pflugerville.
The dental bonding process is only one of the cosmetic procedures that Peak Dentalin Pflugerville offers to our patients.
You could well be a candidate for the tooth bonding procedure on one or even more of your teeth if you are not happy with your smile because of issues like:
After Peak Dental preps the surface of your tooth, Peak Dental will take care to form the resin and then harden it to the place where it is needed. Further adjustments can be made to this material if required so the bonded spot will have a natural fit,feel, and look.
Tooth bonding is one way for conservatively improving that smile of yours. It will require little or no removal of your tooth enamel.
It is less expensive when you compare it to other cosmetic procedures or porcelain veneers.
There is almost no pain, and anesthesia is almost never necessary.
For a bonding appointment, it will take very little time with a visit lasting not much more than one hour per tooth.
The process can be done in our Peak Dental Office in Pflugerville.
If you have any teeth bonded, they will not require any special care in keeping them healthy. You will brush and floss like normal, but be mindful when biting down hard when chewing on food or candy that is hard. The composite resin is hard, but it can still break and chip off if exposed to some extreme pressure.
The resin of composite is a high-quality, versatile, tooth-colored substance that is used in cosmetic and restorative dental procedures. A good example is if a tooth has a cavity or even suffered a mild trauma, the dental bonding will replace the lost or damaged enamel.
Most patients will choose to have their metal amalgam fillings taken out and replaced with composite. For a cosmetic procedure, this bonding will conceal minor cracks and chips or even changed the length, width, or the shape of a tooth to build a more balanced and uniform appearance.
Since bonding is a noninvasive procedure for cosmetics, it is available to about any patient who requests it. It is important to know that if there are other more serious dental problems involved, like extensive tooth decay or possibly periodontal disease, it should be taken care of before the bonding process.
If you are a smoker, Peak Dental recommends you stop before you have dental bonding, because tobacco products will stain the composite resin used.
Dental bonding is usually done with other different cosmetic procedures. If you are thinking about professional teeth whitening, you should do that treatment first so the color match of the composite resin will match your new smile.
