Dental Bonding
Portland, OR

Dentist and assistant performing a dental bonding procedure on a female patient.Dental bonding, also referred to as composite bonding or teeth bonding is a cosmetic procedure that helps to improve your teeth's appearance. Our dentist makes use of tooth-like resin to enhance the color, shape, and size of the injured tooth. The process is mainly used to close spaces and gaps between teeth, repair chips and cracks in teeth, and hide discoloration. The best aspect is that the treatment is uncomplicated and permanent. For more information about dental bonding, visit Lombard Smiles.

Dental Bonding Procedure

Before the dental bonding process starts, you will review your cosmetic goals with our dentist. Our dentist will then examine your gums and teeth to ensure you're ready for the procedure. Our dentists may choose to take X-rays for extra testing. If you have gum disease, severe tooth decay, or other health conditions, your doctor will recommend that you first get treatment for these issues.

Our dentist uses a shade guide to pick a composite resin material that mimics your natural teeth during dental bonding. To ensure that the bonding material sticks appropriately, our dentist will roughen the tooth and add a conditioning fluid. The composite resin material will be put to the required shape and polished. They'll utilize a special curing light to cure the substance. Our dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure that your teeth look as natural as possible. The treatment is not painful, and it can take up to an hour to complete the entire procedure.

Maintaining Bonded Teeth

After the bonding process, our dentist will advise you to clean and floss your teeth daily to maintain excellent oral hygiene. You should also see our dentist regularly for teeth cleanings and general check-ups. The durability of your bond is determined by how well you care for and maintain it. Avoid using anything that will stain the bonding material because it is susceptible to staining. Examples include tea, coffee, cigarette smoke, and alcohol. Besides, avoid biting on hard sweets or ice, and rinse your mouth with water after consuming acidic foods. If you participate in contact sports, use a sports mouthguard to shield your teeth from injuries. If you suffer from bruxism, wear a night guard to safeguard your teeth from grinding and clenching. Call our dentist if you are experiencing any discomfort. Also, make sure you tell your doctor if any of your bonding chips or pieces come loose.

Dental Bonding Benefits

There are many benefits of dental bonding. The leading benefit is that it is non-invasive. Unlike porcelain veneers and dental crowns, dental bonding does not need considerable tooth remodeling. Second, the treatment can help with a variety of cosmetic issues such as chipping, cracks, gaps, and discoloration. Besides, the procedure is completed in just one dental appointment. Dental bonding is a long-lasting material that can last up to ten years before it needs to be replaced or repaired.
