Your permanent teeth should ideally last a lifetime. Unfortunately, when you bite on hard objects like pens, they can discolor, shatter, or even chip. Dental injuries can also occur as a result of sports or vehicle accidents. Exposure to high levels of acidity can also erode the enamel, weakening the tooth and leaving it vulnerable to harm.
If left untreated, dental damage can increase and lead to secondary issues such as tooth decay, gum irritation, and tooth loss. These issues will very certainly require more costly and invasive procedures, including root canals, dental implants, and dental crowns. Fortunately, dental bonding can help you repair dental damage and restore your oral health.
Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic surgery for repairing chipped, cracked, fractured, or discolored teeth. It also works well for closing gaps between teeth and lengthening small teeth. The procedure is simple and does not necessarily need specific preparation.
Visit our dentist's office in the Bronx, New York, to see if you qualify for dental bonding if you're thinking about it. Dental bonding is typically used to repair minor dental damage, and it may not be effective for more serious decay or injury. In this situation, a dental crown will probably be suggested by your dentist.
If you are eligible, your dentist will schedule you for the procedure. This procedure is simple, and it may not even require anesthesia. The initial step is to select a composite resin color that closely matches your natural teeth. The dentist will then prepare the tooth that requires treatment.
To make it easier for the bonding material to adhere, they will then roughen the tooth and apply a bonding agent. The bonding substance will then be applied to the damaged area by the dentist. To get a natural look, the material is molded to the tooth. The material is hardened, and the bonding process is sped up using a specific light. Finally, to ensure that the results are visually pleasing, your dentist will further shape and polish the teeth. Your tooth will appear brand-new!
Caring for your bonded teeth and mouth is critical to extending their lifespan.
