Do you have teeth that are broken, decaying, damaged, misshapen, or otherwise flawed? Do you wish there was a low-cost treatment option that could instantly enhance your smile’s look, feel, and even health? Actually, there is! Dental bonding in Clifton NJ, is something we are delighted to provide at the Dental Spa of Broad Street.
What is Dental Bonding?
Cosmetic bonding is the process of filling minor chips, cracks, and other cosmetic flaws using tooth-colored composite resin. Cosmetic bonding, a suitable substitute for crowns and veneers, uses a color chart to assist you in selecting a shade that complements your natural teeth.
To get the tooth “exactly right,” Drs. Moise Nawlo and Loay Shadid do need to exert a little artistic talent and guarantee that your teeth will look flawless because they are experts. Dental bonding will look like your natural teeth and smile, so other people hardly even notice you’ve had the treatment. Due to its minimally invasive nature and ability to be finished in only one visit, dental bonding is a popular treatment.
Benefits of Dental Bonding
Dental bonding provides many advantages when treating dental flaws, including decay, damage, or infection. We can provide your affected tooth greater strength, support, and structural integrity by using dental bonding to correct mild to severe flaws. Some benefits include:
- Quick diagnosis and effective treatment
- Enamel is not completely removed, protecting the tooth’s health and natural structure
- The process takes less time and effort than dental crowns or porcelain veneers
- Of available cosmetic dental procedures, it has the best value.
- We can carry it out on-site in one appointment.
- Bridging any gaps or spaces
- Repairing crooked teeth
- Repairing decayed teeth (teeth with cavities)
- Lengthening uneven teeth
- Protecting roots exposed to receding gums
- Restoring severely discolored teeth
Dental Bonding Process
If you’ve never had your teeth bonded, you should know the procedure before the appointment. The entire dental bonding procedure is really quick, easy, and uncomplicated. You may not need anesthesia, and the process can take up to 60 minutes.
To choose a resin shade that most nearly resembles the tooth’s natural color, we first consult a shade chart. We will thoroughly clean your tooth before the dental bonding procedure. We will isolate the teeth involved in the process and etch them to prepare them for bonding. The surface of the teeth will have tiny crevices after using the etching conditioning liquid, allowing for a better bond between the tooth and the bonding agent.
The composite will subsequently be cemented with a bonding adhesive that Dr. Nawlo or Dr. Shadid will apply. The tooth-colored composite and bonding resin are molded and hardened using a carefully calibrated light after applying multiple layers of tooth-colored composite. After the composite is fully set, the bonded surfaces are polished, buffed, and smoothed to look like the surrounding teeth.
How Long Does Bonding Last?
Dental bonding can last between three and seven years with proper care. How long bonding lasts for you can depend on several factors. Your bonding can last longer if you practice good oral hygiene. Keep up with regular flossing, twice-day brushing, and dental appointments every six months. Avoid chewing your fingernails, hard candy, or ice.
You should avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and cola drinks for the first 48 hours following the treatment because the bonding material may turn discolored over time. Smoking also changes the bond’s color, turning it yellow. If you smoke, this may be a good time to stop, or you can choose another dental procedure after speaking with your dentist.
