A Quick Fix for Minor Cosmetic Dental Problems
Bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth. It also can be used to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth look longer or to change the shape or color of teeth. Sometimes, bonding is used as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings or to protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede.
Dental bonding requires the least amount of a tooth's enamel to be removed, thus minimizing discomfort and keeping as much of your tooth's structural integrity as possible.
In most cases, anesthesia is not required for bonding treatment.
When you come into our Roseville, CA office and talk to our staff, we may feel that your best option to replace a single lost tooth is a bonded bridge. A bonded bridge consists of two parts. The first is a false tooth, called a pontic and the second are 'wings' that support the pontic. The entire structure spans the space vacated by the missing tooth giving you a natural looking replacement without damaging surrounding teeth. Neighboring tooth structures are allowed to remain the same and the wings of the bonded tooth are attached behind the neighboring teeth.
So don't put off that dentist appointment one more day. Pick up the phone and call Advanced Dental Concepts at 916-786-4865 and setup an appointment to replace that missing tooth today. You will be so glad you did.
Minor Disadvantages to Dental Bonding
Although extremely affordable, there are a few note-worthy disadvantages to dental bonding. Dental bonding is quite hard but does wear down over time and the procedure will typically need to be redone. How long dental bonding actually lasts depends on the bonding thickness and your oral habits such as tooth grinding, biting your nails, chewing hard foods, etc. Another minor disadvantage to dental bonding is that it can be stained with tea, coffee, cigarette smoke, etc., just like your normal teeth. Porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns are a much better and permanent solution to treating many of the same problems that can be treated with dental bonding.
We recommend coming in for a consultation first to see if dental bonding is adequate for your specific situation. To get started and to see if dental bonding is right for you, it's as easy as calling our office at 916-786-4865 or request an appointment through our website.
