Come to Us for Dental Bonding
Sometimes, a small blemish like a chipped tooth can have a significant impact on your confidence when you speak to colleagues at work or cause discomfort while eating. There’s no need to fear an expensive or long process to replace the tooth; just call Twin Aspen Dental Center in Parker, CO. Whether you have a specific accident to blame for a chip in your front tooth or there’s discoloration from stains over time, you can ask our dentist if dental bonding is the safe and painless solution for you!
The Bonding Process in Our Dental Office
If you and Dr. Richter decide that dental bonding is the right choice to get the smile you’ve always wanted, our office will prepare a composite resin material in a natural color that will blend with your existing teeth. After carefully cleaning and sterilizing each tooth for proper adhesion, Dr. Richter will apply the composite directly onto your existing teeth to correct discoloration or fill in chipped areas with a permanent seal. It’s a fast process in a comfortable environment.
The Risks and Benefits of Dental Bonding
While dental bonding is a simple and painless cosmetic treatment, it’s not for everyone. You’ll need to have a professional evaluation to see if the changes you’re hoping for can be accomplished with dental bonding or if they require another cosmetic or restorative treatment, such as veneers or crowns. The bonding process may include some temporary tooth sensitivity to extremely hot or cold food and liquid, but these symptoms are typically short-lived.
After the treatment, to protect your new teeth and prevent premature discolorations or other problems, it’s important to brush and floss every day. Avoid dark-colored foods, wine, tea, tobacco, and bright artificial food coloring to prevent stains to your existing teeth and the composite resin material. You’ll also have to be careful biting into hard foods like corn or apples to avoid chipping any bonding on front teeth.
