What Is Dental Bonding?
Dental bonding is a safe and painless solution to improve the form and functionality of your teeth. First, Dr. Richter will prepare a composite resin material. Next, he will clean and sterilize each tooth to ensure proper adhesion. Finally, he will apply the composite directly onto your existing tooth. Once the composite material is set, it will look and feel exactly like your original tooth. The composite resin he uses is exceptionally pliable so that it can be applied to virtually any tooth. Dental bonding can be used to repair chipped or cracked teeth, fix spacing problems, and fill cavities for a natural look. It is a quick and painless procedure that generally only takes about 30 minutes to complete. You don’t have to settle for a less than perfect smile. Dr. Richter and his team of professionals at Twin Aspen Dental Center are available to help you get the smile and care you deserve.
What are Tooth-Colored Fillings?
Tooth-colored dental fillings are composite materials to repair any cavities or damaged teeth. The materials bond with the existing tooth structure and blend in perfectly with your natural enamel for a seamless look. This process does not require much preparation, as these fillings can be applied directly to the tooth and hardened with a special light. By using composite resins, we can match the perfect color and shade of your existing teeth for a beautiful and natural-looking smile.
Risk Factors for Dental Bonding and Dental Fillings?
There are a few things to consider when choosing dental bonding or tooth-colored dental fillings. The composite resin used is not as durable as your natural tooth or other cosmetic dentistry materials such as porcelain. So, it may need to be repaired on occasion. After the procedure, some patients have experienced sensitivity to hot or cold food and drinks, but these symptoms typically do not last. Maintaining good oral care, including brushing twice a day and flossing, will help prevent the composite fillings from decay and discoloration. We recommend that patients avoid eating hard foods like corn-on-the-cob or apples to prevent chipping this composite material, especially if it is placed on your front teeth. Dental bonding and tooth-colored dental fillings are simple and painless cosmetic treatments. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Richter and his team to discover if dental bonding is right for you.
