Do you have chipped or cracked teeth? Are one or more of your teeth severely stained? Try tooth bonding.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that uses composite resin to cover damaged teeth. Tooth bonding can be used to address teeth that are stained, discolored, fractured, cracked, chipped, or misshapen. This treatment can also stabilize the tooth root and ensure a healthier tooth structure. Tooth structure is important to maintaining the health of teeth and gums. In addition, the tooth structure helps teeth withstand biting and chewing forces. Dr. Jessica Christy provides natural-looking results for patients who want a brighter and more balanced smile.
Is Tooth Bonding Right For Me?
Dental bonding is a solution best suited to treat minor to moderate tooth damage. For patients with severe cases of tooth damage, our dentists may recommend dental crowns or tooth extraction. Before treatment, Dr. Christy will examine your teeth and gums, taking your budget, goals, and health into consideration. If you think that you would be a good candidate for tooth bonding, call (828) 247-7001 for a consultation.
The Tooth Bonding Process
The treatment process begins when Dr. Christy removes a small portion of the tooth structure to ensure that tooth bonding material adheres to the tooth or teeth being treated. She will color match the composite resin bonding material for natural-looking results. The resin will then be sculpted onto the desired tooth, shaped, and molded until it is comfortable for the patient to bite. A special UV light is used to harden and set the resin. Finally, the resin is polished for the complete restoration.
After treatment, you should avoid teeth-staining foods and beverages for at least 48 hours. You can brush and floss your teeth normally after the procedure, although you should avoid biting your nails or chewing on hard food objects following treatment.
