Dental Bonding Corinth TX
Tooth bonding treatment allows us to restore your smile, by filling in any cracks or chips, and hiding stains. It's a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can help boost confidence for those self-conscious about their teeth. Loretto Family Dentistry wants to help fill in any chips or cracks, and restore your smile.
Bonding treatment can fill in cracks and chips. Relative to other procedures, tooth bonding is a non-invasive way to repair small issues with the tooth enamel. It can prevent the need for a more comprehensive treatment, such as a crown or veneer, that would be too large a procedure for the complication the patient is facing.
Bonding can also be used to change the shape of the teeth, including the gaps between them, and how far apart they are. If you want to make minor adjustments to the appearance of your teeth, without using realignment equipment such as braces or a retainer, dental bonding can be a quick amendment to your smile.
A consultation appointment will be an opportunity for you to discuss with our dentist what you'd like to be done. We will take a mold and 3D images of your mouth, in order to ensure the bonding is possible. You will be asked to choose the color of the resin that will coat your tooth, to ensure the bonding blends in with the rest of your teeth.
During the treatment process, our dentist will roughen the surface of your tooth, in order to prepare it for the resin. A liquid will also be placed, to act as an adhesive between the resin and enamel. When the resin is placed, our dentist will mold it into the desired shape. Then, we will place an ultraviolet light over your mouth. This will allow the resin to set and securely fit onto the enamel.
The appointment should take between one to two hours, depending on how many teeth you are having bonding treatment on. The procedure is routine, and the risk of complications is very low.
Avoiding coffee, wine and other staining drinks prevents the discoloration of the bonding in the first 48 hours. Avoiding staining drinks, in general, will also help prevent discoloration over long periods of time.
Our dentists will emphasize the importance of brushing twice a day, for two minutes each time, to ensure the removal of plaque build up. The removal of plaque build up will help maintain the color and appearance of your teeth. Attending your regular dental appointments with us will also help maintain good oral health and oral appearance.
Using a mouthguard when playing contact and object sports will help prevent damage to the bonded teeth. The use of a mouthguard at night is advised for those suffering from bruxism (teeth grinding) to also avoid damage to the teeth as well.
Loretto Family Dentistry can help improve your smile. Teeth whitening, paired with bonding, is the most effective way to brighten your teeth. We offer both treatments. To get more information on either of them, contact us at (940) 287-3535 today!
Love everyone I've encountered here! I was told about Dr. Mackie a few months ago and just wish I'd known about her sooner! She is very thorough and kind. It's a bit of a drive for me, but I don't mind and actually look forward to my visits!
