Have you just chipped a front tooth? Is your single stained tooth darkening your smile? If you have an injured or discolored tooth affecting your smile, we can help. At Monokian Dentistry, we offer teeth bonding treatment to patients in Marlton and Haddonfield, NJ. Bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that uses tooth-colored materials to improve the look of the smile. Dental bonding can fill tooth gaps, repair damage, cover crooked teeth, and brighten discolored teeth.
The Benefits of Dental Bonding Treatment
Tooth bonding has many advantages for patients who want to change the shape, size, and color of their teeth. Dental bonding treatment is:
- Natural-looking: We color-match bonding resin to natural teeth to ensure that they blend in with the treated tooth and adjacent natural teeth. Our dentists also cure and polish the resin for a natural sheen.
- Cost-effective: Unlike other cosmetic treatments like veneers, dental bonding offers an economical option for patients who want to fix their teeth temporarily. Bonding is a more cost-effective option for problems affecting only one or several teeth.
- Protective: Bonding not only improves the look of the smile but can also protect damaged teeth. If patients have chips, cracks, or fractures in their tooth enamel, they can sustain more damage to their injured tooth and damage other natural teeth. Harmful bacteria can also enter the tooth through a dental injury. A bonding treatment can cover and protect damage to prevent these problems.
Teeth Bonding Treatment
Before we apply bonding material, we use a shade guide to match the shade of the bonded tooth to adjacent natural teeth. Then, we prepare the tooth by etching and roughening the enamel. Preparation ensures that the resin properly adheres to the tooth. Then, we apply a conditioning liquid to the tooth and mold the composite resin. We sculpt the resin to the tooth, matching the exact shape. Once we ensure that the bonded tooth is the correct shape and size, we use a curing light to harden the resin.
