Do you have chips and cracks in your tooth enamel? Are you looking for a treatment to repair your smile? Dr. Denise Halliburton provides teeth bonding treatment at Halliburton Family Dentistry in Ellicott City, MD. Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that adds structure to damaged teeth and covers tooth stains. This versatile and economical option is great for patients who have minor dental injuries and require cosmetic dental care.
What Can Tooth Bonding Treatment Do?
With dental bonding treatment, we can:
- Fill gaps between teeth
- Cover slightly crooked teeth
- Repair chips or cracks
- Brighten discolored, yellowed, or stained teeth
If you are new to cosmetic dental treatment and want to know more about what dental bonding can do for your smile, call our office. We always thoroughly examine each patient’s smiles before treatment, taking their budget and goals into account when choosing a solution.
Dental Bonding Treatment
To create a proper bonding surface, we clean the teeth and etch the tooth enamel. Removing a small portion of the enamel ensures that the dental bonding material adheres to teeth. Then, we color-match the resin to brighten the smile or blend in with natural teeth. After sculpting the resin onto teeth, we mold it into the proper shape. We set the resin with a UV light and polish the teeth for a high shine.
For at least 48 hours after your treatment, avoid foods and beverages like coffee, red wine, tea, and soda as these can stain the teeth. We also recommend that patients avoid chewing on hard and sticky foods. You may feel temporary tooth sensitivity after treatment, which can be treated with prescriptions and ice packs.
Patients can care for their bonded teeth like their natural teeth. Schedule routine biannual dental appointments and continue your normal oral hygiene routine at home to maintain the best results.
