Dental Bonding in Las Vegas, NV
At The Tooth Family Dental, we are happy to restore your damaged tooth or make aesthetic improvements through dental bonding. Dental bonding is a long-lasting cosmetic procedure ideal for those who want a quick and durable solution for dental imperfections.
Restorative bonding can be used when a tooth is damaged. Composite resin is applied to match your natural teeth. It is hardened with a special dental light, bonding it to the tooth. Dental bonding can be used to fix a chipped tooth and make it look just like the teeth next to it.
If you are having dental bonding done as a cosmetic procedure rather than a restorative procedure and you are unhappy with the current shade of your teeth, bring this up at your initial consultation. The Tooth Family Dental will be happy to go over tooth whitening solutions which can be performed before dental bonding or other restorative procedures. Once the dental resin is applied, it cannot be lightened. To care for your dental bonding, avoid drinking or eating foods that can stain teeth. While dental bonding is durable, it is not stain-resistant.
Dental bonding is a non-invasive dental procedure. All that needs to be done to prepare a tooth for dental bonding is to slightly roughen the tooth and apply a conditioning liquid. Anesthesia is not generally needed for dental bonding procedures.
Dental Bonding Reasons and Care
Dental bonding can also be used to reshape teeth and fill in gaps, creating a more uniform appearance. Bonding can also be used to cover stains that cannot be removed during traditional bleaching. Dental bonding can be reversed and can also be used as a temporary solution while waiting for more permanent solutions. Restorative bonding can last many decades if taken care of properly. The best way to take care of dental bonding is by following the same steps as taking care of natural teeth. Brushing and flossing daily and visiting our Las Vegas dental office twice a year are highly recommended. We also suggest avoiding highly acidic foods and activities that could impact your tooth through trauma.
