Do you have a single stained tooth? Are your damaged teeth impacting your smile? Tooth bonding can help. Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that addresses discolored and injured teeth. We provide teeth bonding treatment to patients in our Bryn Mawr, PA, dental office. Tooth bonding is a more economical alternative to porcelain veneers that covers tooth chips, gaps, breaks, and stains. We will often recommend bonding treatment for patients who have slight cosmetic imperfections in one or more teeth. Dental bonding treatment is an efficient way to improve the smile.
Teeth Bonding Treatment in Bryn Mawr
We examine the smile before treatment to determine if patients require treatment before their bonding procedure. We ensure that patients are in good oral health for the best result.
To begin, we prepare the tooth enamel for the bonding material. We will often remove a portion of the tooth enamel to create a good bonding surface. In addition, we can apply a conditioning liquid to prepare the tooth. Then, we apply the resin bonding material to the tooth. Next, we mold and sculpt the material into the correct shape. Once the bonded tooth is in the proper form and shade, we use a curing light to harden the resin. Finally, we polish the bonded tooth.
Caring for Bonded Teeth
After your treatment, you will need to follow a soft diet. Hard, crunchy, sticky, and chewy foods can cause sensitivity or damage your bonded teeth. We will also ask you to avoid foods and beverages that easily stain teeth. For example, tea, wine, berries, and coffee can stain your newly bonded teeth.
Continue to brush your teeth and gums normally. We recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush. It typically takes one or two weeks to get accustomed to your new cosmetic restoration. After that point, your bonded teeth will blend in with your natural smile.
