Have you just broken or chipped a tooth? Try dental bonding. Bonding treatment uses malleable, tooth-colored materials to cover tooth chips, cracks, gaps between teeth, and discolored teeth. We provide teeth bonding treatment at Sun Smile Dentistry in Port Charlotte, FL, to help patients improve their smiles and confidence in their smile aesthetic.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?
There are many benefits to bonding treatment. Dental bonding can help prevent further tooth damage for patients with chips, cracks, or fractures. Bonding material adds structure to teeth and can protect teeth. Because the bonding material is color-matched to teeth, it offers a natural look. We will match the bonding material to adjacent and single teeth, as damaged teeth can discolor. The bonding material can also improve the shape and size of teeth. Patients with shortened teeth or slightly crooked teeth benefit from bonding.
Teeth Bonding Treatment in Port Charlotte, FL
Before bonding treatment, Dr. Rosado will ensure you have no outstanding dental problems, including cavities or gum disease. Dr. Rosado will first clean the tooth and remove any decay or damage to prepare the tooth. He may etch into the teeth to ensure the bonding material adheres properly. Then, he will place the bonding material on the teeth. He sculpts the material into the proper shape and checks the fit before hardening the bonding material with a curing light. Finally, he polishes the bonded tooth for a natural sheen.
Bonded teeth are simple to care for. After bonding treatment, you can brush and floss your teeth like natural teeth. However, you should avoid hard-bristled brushes and types of toothpaste that contain abrasive materials. Over time, bonded teeth can discolor from tobacco use or eating and drinking foods and beverages that easily stain. Avoiding tobacco products and highly staining foods and drinks can ensure that the bonding material stays bright.
