Benefits of Tooth Bonding
Tooth bonding is a great dental solution for a range of dental problems. It is low-risk and the procedure is a breeze - the procedure is painless and involves very little, if any, discomfort. After the bonding procedure has been completed, it requires standard oral health practices to maintain its appearance. Dental bonding is powerful enough to help many patients have healthier, happier smiles, affordable, and can last years with reasonable care.
Tooth bonding is:
- Fast - unlike other crowns or veneers, tooth bonding can be done in as little as one session
- Non-Invasive - bonding is non-ivasive and doesn't require surgical dentistry - tooth bonds are placed on top of your existing tooth
- Effective - bonds can fill large tooth gaps, repair cracked or chipped teeth, fix the shape of misshaped teeth, and improve the appearance of discolored teeth or stains
- Affordable - dental implants and veneers can be expensive, but the average cost of tooth bonds ranges from $300-$600 for each tooth
- Long-Lasting - tooth bonding, with adequate care, can last for 10+ years
Tooth Bonding Procedure
You have a minor cosmetic dental flaw or damaged tooth, and you've realized that tooth bonding could be the perfect treatment for your dental needs. In deciding whether or not tooth bonding is right for you, you should know what to expect from the Spanish Lake, MO tooth bonding procedure.
The tooth bonding procedure is a simple visit to your Spanish Lake, MO dental office. You will be in and out in a matter of minutes. In most cases, no anesthesia is necessary.
First, you and your dentist must work to select the exact resin color to use. Your dentist will use charts and samples to make sure that the resin blends in seamlessly with the color of your natural teeth.
Your dentist then readies the surface of the tooth or teeth that require the tooth bonding procedure. Slightly roughening the affected tooth's surface allows the resin to form a stronger attachment to the tooth, like how sculptors score individual pieces of pottery before sticking them together. After preparing the surface of the tooth, you dentist will also apply a liquid bonding agent that will hold the resin to the tooth.
Next the resin will be applied to the tooth. At this point in the tooth bonding procedure, the resin is in a putty-like form. The viscous material allows your dentist to carefully shape and mold the resin to the desired shape to take on the appearance of a natural tooth.
Once it has been shaped, the resin is cured and set using UV light. The UV light hardens the resin into a hard, tooth-like consistency. Your dentist is still able to make alterations to the shape and size after the resin hardens. This is the perfect time for additional finishing touches such as minor shaping tweaks and polishing to add a shine.
There you have it: the Spanish Lake, MO tooth bonding appointment is simple and painless. Your office visit can be done in under an hour and usually takens even less time. The length of time increases, however, if you are having multiple teeth treated with tooth bonding. In this case, one option is to break it up into separate visits to avoid a lengthy visit.
