Do you have a single discolored tooth? Is a chip in your front tooth impacting the look of your smile? Fix small cosmetic dental problems with dental bonding treatment. Dental bonding uses biocompatible materials to cover tooth gaps, discolored teeth, tooth chips and cracks, and other areas of damage. Dr. Michael Sesi provides teeth bonding treatment to patients at Hartland Dental Care in Hartland, MI. Dental bonding is an alternative to dental veneers that offers efficient care and immediate results.
Teeth Bonding in Hartland, MI
Before dental bonding treatment, we use a shade guide to determine the current shade of patients’ teeth and find their desired shade. Then, we need to clean and prepare the tooth enamel. We roughen the tooth’s surface so the bonding material properly adheres to each tooth. Then, we take biocompatible resin and match it to the patient’s desired tooth shade. We shape the resin onto each tooth to match the contours of natural teeth. Finally, we harden the material with a curing light.
Dental bonding offers affordable treatment for patients who have one or two cosmetic problems. Compared to other cosmetic treatments, bonding provides a quicker treatment with professional results.
How to Care For Bonded Teeth
There are several tips patients can follow to ensure that their bonded teeth last:
- Avoid hard, sticky, or crunchy foods
- Do not consume staining foods or drinks
- Brush with a soft-bristled toothbrush
- Use non-abrasive toothpaste
- Do not chew your nails
- Continue to schedule biannual dental visits
Following these guidelines can protect newly bonded teeth and ensure that results last for many years. If you notice changes in the fit or appearance of your bonded teeth, please contact our office. We can plan a new dental bonding treatment to refresh your smile.
