Do you have a single chipped tooth? Maybe you have several minor cosmetic problems that you need to address. Dental bonding offers cosmetic dental treatment to improve the appearance and structure of teeth. Dr. Kevin Sivaneri and Dr. Ashley Whetsell provide teeth bonding treatment to create brighter, fuller smiles for patients in Nashville, TN. Dental bonding can be a simple yet effective treatment for patients with minor cosmetic problems.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
There are many advantages to tooth bonding treatment. Bonding can:
- Provide minimally invasive treatment
- Cover large tooth gaps
- Brighten the smile’s appearance
- Cover broken teeth
- Create a better-aligned smile
- Replace silver fillings
Tooth bonding treatment is similar to porcelain veneers because they cover damaged teeth. However, bonding offers a more economical option than veneers. Bonding benefits patients who have smaller areas of damage.
Teeth Bonding in Nashville, TN
To begin treatment, we will examine your teeth and determine the right shade of composite to use for your tooth or teeth. We ensure that the resin matches the surrounding natural teeth. To prepare the bonded teeth, we gently roughen the tooth surface and place a conditioning liquid on the enamel. Preparing the teeth ensures that the resin adheres to the teeth and blends in with the shape of other teeth.
Then, we apply the resin and mold it into the correct size and shape. We will harden the resin with an LED light. This light bonds the resin to the tooth. Finally, we trim and polish the bonded tooth and ensure that it blends in with the look of natural teeth.
The best way to care for composite bonding is to continue to brush and floss, visit the dentist, and avoid hard or crunchy foods. Clean your bonded teeth like natural teeth. Use a non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. You may also need to refrain from eating staining foods like berries and tomato sauces or drinking wine, coffee, and tea.
