What is tooth bonding?
Tooth bonding is the process of applying a tooth-colored resin to correct the appearance of an altered tooth as a result of decay, discoloration, fracture, or otherwise.This material of the dental bond blends with your natural teeth, making your teeth appear healthier and brighter. If you have decided that tooth bonding is right for you, Dr. Hogan can help you walk out of your appointment with a brand new smile!
What is tooth bonding used for?
Tooth bonding is a very easy cosmetic procedure. The composite resin used as the bond is shaped and shaded to reflect the neighboring teeth. Many people in the past have received tooth bonding as an aesthetic enhancement to augment their smile. It can correct the appearance of discolored or chipped teeth. In addition, tooth bonding can be used as a protective agent to a compromised root as a result of receding gums. Dr. Hogan also recommends tooth bonding as an easy solution to fill in gaps between teeth as well.
How long does the tooth bonding process take?
The tooth bonding procedure typically takes around 30 minutes. However, if you are having more than one tooth treated, your treatment time may take longer than 30 minutes and may require more than one appointment.
How do I take care of the bonded teeth?
To reduce the chances of staining, Dr. Hogan recommends holding off on eating or drinking items that can induce dental stains such as tea or coffee for the first two days following your tooth bonding treatment. For more information on how you can take care of your new smile, consult with Dr. Hogan!
