If you are looking for a solution for your minor dental problems and are looking for quality care, look no further than Middle Creek Dental. For minor damage and small cosmetic problems, you have many options. One of these such options is composite dental bonding. This procedure is pretty simple, but it takes much skill to pull off flawlessly. Fortunately, we have just that, and the years of experience to back up that claim. We can take care of you in a way that no one else can.
What is Dental Bonding?
When you come in for a dental bonding procedure, you will be receiving a small amount of composite resin on the surface of your teeth that is molded or shaped to repair small amounts of damage or to cosmetically enhance your smile. This repair is a bit more fragile than a veneer or a crown but is also much more affordable. It may chip or require other repairs down the line, which is important to remember. It is hardened with a special curing light during your appointment, though, which ensures that it will not shift or become misshapen.
Who Needs One?
There are a lot of different minor restorative or cosmetic procedures that can be accomplished with this simple procedure, for a percentage of the cost. A lot of the time, this resin is used to fill minor cavities. It is a better option for your wallet than other filling materials. It can also be used to fill in racks or chips, protecting your natural tooth and preventing the damage from expanding.
We can cover severe discoloration as well to give your smile a natural looking radiance without drastic changes. We can change the length or shape of your teeth to enhance your smile or to fill in gaps between your teeth. This can also improve your bite pattern to a more comfortable position. Finally, if you suffer from a receding gum line, your roots may be exposed and sensitive. This resin can cover that up as well, meaning no more pain!
How Do I Get One?
Most people are candidates for dental bonding, and if you are given the opportunity to get one, we will start by prepping your tooth. While this most often does not hurt and so we won't use anesthetic, in rare instances we may. When we prepare your tooth, we will remove a small layer of enamel so that the resin has something that it can stick to. Then, we can shape and mold it to your specifications or fill in a cavity. Once your tooth is perfectly shaped and colored, we will use a special light to harden the resin completely. Then, you are all set!
We want you to be more confident with your smile when you leave than when you came in. We also want you as healthy as we can get you, and Middle Creek Dental will work harder than anyone else to get you there.
