Forget flaws in your teeth and repair them today with the easy and simple process of bonding. Our dental bonding in Knoxville, Tennessee offers you a unique, affordable, and non-invasive option for minor dental repairs.
If you have a damaged or unattractive tooth and it’s not necessary for you to get a veneer or dental crown, then bonding may be a great solution. No matter how well you take care of your teeth, as time passes, you may start to see life’s wear and tear on your smile. Maintaining your teeth with routine checkups is important but sometimes slight repairs are needed.
Lynnwood Dental can fix any minor flaws with this simple process and keep your smile shining brightly.
When our teeth are young and in a healthier state they have a strong composition of enamel and dentin. Porcelain is used in dentistry as a replacement for enamel loss. Resin filler is used to replace missing dentin inside of the tooth. These are the two materials used in the bonding process. They work together to fully replicate the look of a natural tooth while protecting and restoring it to the state it should be.
The process of bonding is simple and painless. Resin that matches your teeth is applied to cover any deficiencies, chipping, or other minor defects. It can also be utilized in repairing cavities by filling the cavity hole with the same colored resin so that it matches the tooth perfectly. The application lasts a long time but may need occasional future repairs.
Treatment of this procedure may include:
Not every needed repair can be solved with bonding. Some cases are too serious for this kind of dental repair and may require veneers, implants, crowns, or other dental procedures. The best way to find out if bonding is right for you is to obtain a full assessment from your dental provider.
Dr. Boren will examine your teeth and see if they can be easily repaired with this simple procedure. If she determines that bonding will not work in your case, she will provide you with other repair options to get your smile back in shape.
Cases that are not qualified for bonding usually involve wear and tear from chewing, grinding, biting, or an injury. If you have a lot of decay or areas of decay, this procedure will not work for you.
The best cases for this procedure are basic dental repairs and imperfections. Dental bonding is an easy and affordable option to keep your teeth looking their best, especially if your case does not require anything more serious like a dental implant, crown, or veneer.
In most cases, the procedure takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour per tooth and can last 3-10 years. Normal activity can resume right away and in most cases there is no pain reported by patients who receive the treatment.
Now that you have completed your procedure, and your teeth look great, it’s time to step up the oral health habits to maintain your results! Daily flossing and brushing are vital when maintaining the look of your dental bonding.
Also, be sure to book routine check-ups and cleanings with your dentist so they can ensure the tooth is in good shape and can assess if any additional work or repairs are in order.If you notice anything wrong with your teeth, particularly in the areas where resin was applied, be sure to notify your dentist for evaluation.
