Instantly Correct Cracks, Chips, and Cavities
At Dental Designs, we provide all kinds of advanced ways to restore damaged or flawed teeth. One of the fastest and most affordable ways to improve your smile is with dental bonding.
Cosmetic bonding uses tooth-colored materials to hide minor defects such as:
- Discoloration and staining.
- Gaps between teeth.
Bonding materials are called “composite resins” because they contain an aesthetic mixture of plastic and glass. These composite resin materials add strength to your teeth while they appear perfectly natural. The bonding is placed directly onto your tooth, and it will actually bond, or become one, with the rest of your natural smile!
You can trust Dr. Brett Farnham and Dr. Kirby Fuerst to complete your dental bonding with an artistic eye to ensure the most natural results. No one will be able to distinguish your bonded tooth from your other teeth. Although cosmetic bonding will not last as long as a dental veneer, it does not require any wait time or removal of healthy tooth enamel.
Bonding is a great solution for young or anxious patients, because there is little to no drilling or anesthesia involved. Cosmetic bonding can be a great temporary or permanent solution for various dental imperfections.
The Bonding Process
The bonding process requires just 30 minutes to an hour per tooth. Dr. Farnham or Dr. Fuerst will clean the tooth, etch it with an acidic gel, rinse the gel, and then paint on your cosmetic resin bonding layer by layer.
Patients enjoy the simplicity of the dental bonding process. With dental bonding, you can avoid:
- Waiting for the dental lab to complete your restoration.
- Drilling and local anesthesia.
- Removal of the natural and healthy tooth structure.
Tooth bonding is healthy, safe, and fast. You will leave our office with a gorgeous new smile after one short hour in the dental chair.
How to Care for Your Dental Bonding
Continue to brush and floss daily, and receive regular professional cleanings in our office. The most important thing to keep in mind is that bonding can absorb staining, just like natural teeth can. Avoid smoking, red wine, coffee, and tea as often as possible. Finally, remember to avoid biting your nails or using your bonding as a tool to open up packages or bite down on hard substances.
