With the help of a tooth-colored, durable plastic resin, San Diego dental bonding treatment can effectively rejuvenate the appearance of teeth that have experienced minor chips, stains, cracks, and even those that are mildly misshapen. At San Diego Dental Specialists, we’ve seen time and time again how this service affordably, conveniently, and efficiently transforms smiles!
What does the dental bonding process entail?
Depending on where you’d like bonding placed, the process can be very simple since an anesthetic is only required to fill a cavity, if the bonding area is near a nerve, or if the tooth requires the use of a drill to alter its shape.
Before the bonding material is applied to your tooth or teeth, our San Diego tooth bonding dentist will choose a shade of composite that closely matches your tooth shade. Then, a conditioning liquid will be applied to help the resin adhere securely. The bonding material will then be placed and smoothed to maximize your smile and bite before we use a bright light to cure it. Our dentist will then smooth and polish the area to ensure that it looks and feels natural.
What type of at-home care do bonded teeth require?
Teeth that have received dental bonding require the same care as your natural teeth, which includes daily flossing and twice daily brushing, as well as bi-annual visits to our office for checkups and cleanings. You should also do your best to avoid tooth-damaging habits, including fingernail biting, chewing on ice, and opening bags with your teeth. It’s also best to limit your intake of staining foods and drinks, and if you smoke, try to quit.
