Do you have chipped or damaged teeth? Are single stained teeth impacting your smile?
Try teeth bonding treatment in Rosedale, MD. Teeth bonding is one of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer to Rosedale, MD. Dental bonding is used to help fix fractured, chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. Bonding treatment also benefits patients with misshapen teeth or gaps between teeth. We recommend bonding treatment to patients who have minor to moderate tooth damage and cosmetic concerns such as a discolored tooth.
Our dentists take the budget, dental needs, and cosmetic goals of each patient into account before recommending any dental treatment. As an alternative to porcelain veneers, dental bonding can be a quick and economical treatment for small cosmetic imperfections.
Dental Bonding Treatment
Before treatment, we will examine your teeth and gums to help determine if you are a good candidate for dental bonding treatment. If needed, we can provide infection treatments including periodontal therapy to ensure that the teeth and gums are healthy.
To begin, we will prepare the teeth by removing a small portion of the tooth’s structure. Preparing the teeth in this way ensures that the composite resin adheres to the tooth surface. We will make sure that the resin is the right color before we sculpt it to the tooth. Once the tooth is the desired shape and shade, we will cure it to the tooth. Finally, we polish the tooth for a reflective, natural look.
Caring For Teeth After Dental Bonding
Directly after your bonding procedure, we ask that patients follow a soft diet. Hard, sticky, and chewy foods can damage or cause sensitivity in your treated teeth. Also, avoid foods and beverages that easily stain, including coffee, tea, and wine. Continue to gently brush and floss your teeth to maintain the health of your natural teeth and gums.
Some patients will find that it can take one or two weeks to get accustomed to their bonded teeth. However, once they do, their bonded teeth will look and feel just like natural teeth.
