If you don’t have the smile you’ve always wanted and you’re looking for a fast and effective solution, then dental bonding at Harmony Dental Care in Oshawa, ON might be an ideal treatment for you. Created from tooth-colored resin, dental bonding can work to fix chipped, decayed, or cracked teeth. It can also change the shape or length of a tooth, cover up an exposed root, or even close the space between your teeth. The result of dental bonding is a natural appearance and a tooth that’s much stronger.
If you think dental bonding might work for you and your smile, you can request a consultation at Harmony Dental Care. At this point, we will begin by examining your teeth and gums, taking x-rays, and discussing all possible options to make sure that dental bonding is the right choice for you.
Anesthesia is unnecessary for dental bonding, and your tooth does not need any sort of prep work. The only exception to this rule is when you have a dental cavity because we’ll need to remove all the decay before getting started.
Choosing the right shade of composite resin is important because we want the bonding to match the shade of the rest of your teeth. We’ll apply this material to your teeth directly and then sculpt it into shape. Your bite will be checked before the material is hardened into place using an ultraviolet light.
There are several reasons why dental bonding is preferred to other cosmetic treatments. To begin with, this treatment only takes one appointment at Harmony Dental Care, unless you’re having more than one tooth bonded. Another advantage is that there is no enamel removed from your teeth, unlike when you get dental crowns or dental veneers. Dental bonding is also affordable, making it a great option for small problems with your teeth, or even as a short-term solution for problems that are more extensive.
You should care for your bonded teeth just like you do your natural teeth. Make sure you’re brushing twice a day, eating a healthy diet, and flossing. Avoid biting down on anything that’s not food, such as fingernails or pencils.
