What is Dental Bonding?

October 5, 2020 Premier Dental Center

dental bonding dentist troy miDr. Nazarian may recommend dental bonding if you have front teeth with small chips, cracks, or stains. Dental bonding may also be used to close small gaps between teeth in the “smile zone.”

One of the main benefits of the dental bonding procedure is that it can be done in one appointment. This means that you’ll be able to leave our office with your new smile.

In this blog post, we’ll describe some of the excellent patient care you’ll receive at the Premier Dental Center. For more information, please do not hesitate to call our office. We’d be more than happy to help!

Consultation

First, you’ll need to schedule an appointment with our cosmetic dentist. Dr. Nazarian has been delivering cosmetic solutions to patients for over 25 years.

Once you’re in the dentist’s chair, we’ll take X-rays and Dr. Nazarian will conduct an oral examination.

If the damage to your front teeth is minor, he may recommend the dental bonding procedure. But it’s important to remember that each patient is different. For example, he may recommend a dental crown if the tooth is structurally compromised by a large crack or cavity. Likewise, Dr. Nazarian may recommend professional teeth whitening if you have noticeable stains. It all depends on what he observes during your appointment.

Whatever the result, you can be sure that Dr. Nazarian will be able to create a beautiful healthy smile you’ll be proud to show the world.

Dental Bonding Procedure

If you’re a candidate for cosmetic bonding, Dr. Nazarian will use a shade guide to match the exact color of your enamel. This ensures that the composite resin looks natural and matches the rest of your smile.

Next, Dr. Nazarian will roughen the surface of your tooth and apply a liquid. This will then allow the composite resin to make a strong bond with the tooth. Once the tooth has been prepped, Dr. Nazarian will start to mold the composite resin onto your tooth. The final step is to harden the resin in place with ultraviolet light.

Aftercare

Dental plaque is one of the main threats to your oral health. That’s why it’s vital that you continue practicing good oral hygiene at home. Our dentist recommends brushing your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes at a time. You should also floss once a day to remove any food particles that could be hiding between teeth.

In addition to good oral hygiene, continue scheduling appointments with our office for routine teeth cleanings and oral examinations. During these appointments, we not only remove plaque and tartar but we’ll also monitor the condition of your bonded teeth.

In general, teeth bonding can last between 3 and 10 years. But it all depends on how well you take care of your smile and overall health. Dental bonding is more likely to last longer when you practice good oral hygiene, don’t grind your teeth, and avoid smoking. You should also avoid drinking a lot of dark beverages (like coffee or red wine) that could stain the bonding material.
