Bonding in Atlanta, GA
Are you embarrassed by unsightly gaps in your teeth? If so, then you may want to look into dental bonding. When you choose dental bonding, one of our Atlanta cosmetic dentists will use a visible blue light to bond a tooth-colored resin material to your teeth, closing any gaps that you may be self-conscious about. It can also work to help your teeth appear longer, which is something many people are interested in because they may feel as though their teeth are too short. Your dentist will use a shade guide to create a resin that matches the natural color of your teeth, so that no one will even know that the bonding occurred.
Just like with many other cosmetic dental procedures, dental bonding is about more than just improving the appearance of your teeth. Bonding can also help repair decayed teeth by using resin to fill in cavities. Furthermore, bonding can fix chipped and cracked teeth as well as improve the shape of teeth, which may help you chew better. Also, if your gums have been receding over the years, bonding can be used to help protect the part of the tooth’s root that has been exposed.
One of the best things about dental bonding, (other than the great results) is that it is a quick procedure that should take no more than 30 to 60 minutes, and can usually be done in one office visit. This is usually an inexpensive procedure, and anesthesia is not required. Little preparation is needed for dental bonding, so there’s no need to plan days in advance for this simple procedure.
After you’ve had dental bonding performed, you don’t need to care for these teeth any differently. All you have to do is follow good oral hygiene techniques, and your bonds can last for up to 10 years. However, it’s important to note that bonding material can chip, so you should avoid bad habits such like chewing on ice, pen caps or biting your nails. This is why you should call your dentist if there are any sharp edges on your bonded tooth.
This simple and fast procedure has lasting results that are sure to make you smile. So if you’ve been wanting to fix gaps in your teeth for years, then don’t hesitate to call a Atlanta cosmetic dentist and ask about tooth bonding.
