What Is Teeth Bonding?
Dental bonding is a restorative and cosmetic procedure that helps restore the appearance and function of your teeth. It can fill in cracks, even out misshapen teeth, or cover up imperfections like discoloration. In other cases, bonding can protect exposed nerves or protect teeth from further damage.
Dentists are able to bond teeth using an advanced composite resin. We attached this resin to the tooth to change its appearance and structure. By doing this, we are able to help you achieve the look you desire for your teeth, as well as make your teeth as functional as possible. Many patients opt for bonding over other procedures because it is non-invasive, meaning it has a very small recovery time and does not require surgery.
How Teeth Bonding Works
Bonding is a quick and painless procedure. Dr. Randy Moore is often able to conduct bonding in just one dental visit. Over the last 25 years, we have helped thousands of patients improve the appearance of their teeth using bonding.
The first step to bonding a tooth involves removing a small bit of enamel from the tooth. Next, we attach the composite resin and do any contouring that may be required. While teeth bonding is considered a cosmetic procedure, it can do wonders to help you chew and talk, as well as improve the structural integrity of a tooth.
If you are wondering if teeth bonding is right for you, we encourage you to schedule a consultation at Smile Moore Dentistry. You can reach us directly at 770-945-5369.
How Long Does Bonding Last?
The length of time that bonding lasts depends on the materials used, how often the tooth is engaged in functions like chewing, and your overall oral health. In general, bonding lasts anywhere from 3-10 years, but in some cases, it can last decades.
To get the most out of your teeth bonding, it is important to practice good dental hygiene. Visiting our dental office in Buford every 6 months is a great way to ensure your bonding is holding up, as well as preventing other oral health issues. Brushing at least twice per day and flossing, as well as avoiding hard foods on your bonded tooth, can help it last longer.
Is Dental Bonding Right for Me?
Patients with cracked or chipped teeth can benefit from tooth bonding. However, whether the procedure is right for you is both a personal decision and a medical one, as well as financial. We recommend scheduling an appointment for a consultation to see if bonding is right for you. Dr. Randy Moore will go over the pros and cons, as well as see if your teeth are able to be bonded.
If you are worried about the insurance implications, we recommend you contact your provider for more details. Smile Moore Dentistry works to make bonding affordable, and in many cases, insurance will cover at least some of the procedure. We also have financing options available to our patients.
