Why Choose Tooth Bonding?
Tooth bonding is a treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of teeth. As an economical alternative to porcelain veneers, tooth bonding gives teeth a natural look. Dr. Drew Shulman offers tooth bonding in his cosmetic dentistry in Northeast Philadelphia, PA.
Tooth bonding can be used to:
- Fill cavities
- Correct tooth discoloration
- Repair decayed teeth
- Fill gaps between teeth
- Repair cracks and chips in teeth
The material used in tooth bonding can also be used for dental or “white” fillings. Patients can replace their old metal dental fillings with a natural-looking and aesthetically pleasing filling material.
The Tooth Bonding Process
The tooth bonding process begins when a biocomposite resin sculpted to a prepared tooth. The resin is shaped, polished, and “bonded” to teeth using a special curing light. The biocomposite material used in tooth bonding is color matched to teeth for a natural look. Tooth bonding can offer multiple benefits to patients as it is stain resistant and durable. The procedure also maintains tooth structure, which is integral to maintaining good oral health. You should avoid drinking tooth-staining beverages like tea, coffee, and wine for 48 hours after the procedure.
Tooth Bonding FAQs
How long does tooth bonding last?
Depending on the tooth’s location, tooth bonding can last from 4 to 8 years.
Does tooth bonding hurt?
Tooth bonding does not hurt as the area of the tooth being worked on is not sensitive.
Does tooth bonding break easily?
Unless you clench or grind your teeth, the tooth bonding biocomposite material is not easily breakable. If you suffer from bruxism, or teeth grinding, tell Dr. Drew Shulman and he can help treat the condition at the source.
