A Little Dental Bonding Can Make A Big Improvement In Your Smile

Welcome to another February installment of our Oregon City Family Dentistry blog! We are glad you found our online home. And we can’t wait to get to know you better in-person. So, what is on your mind today?

Are you…

…fed up with certain aspects of your teeth?

…tired of feeling self-conscious about your look?

…ready to improve the health and appearance of your smile?

…looking for a dentist in Oregon who can get the job done?

The you are in luck! In our Oregon City office, we tackle tough cosmetic dentistry issues and we can completely makeover your smile, if need be. However, if you are looking for a less over-the-top solution than a full-on makeover, you might try something simpler like a dental bonding session.

Around here, we can provide natural-looking dental bonds to fix up your chipped or decayed teeth. As it happens, dental bonding is one of the most affordable and versatile cosmetic treatments around. It is totally non-invasive too. What more could you ask for?

You’ll be happy to know that this procedure employs a composite resin material that blends in perfectly with your teeth, making it impossible for outsiders to know that you’ve had any cosmetic work done. It will be your little secret!

The best part is that besides being safe, subtle, and cost-effective, this procedure is also quite easy!

We aren’t just saying that, either. The truth is, your tooth-bonding session usually requires no anesthesia or preparation of the tooth, and can be completed in only a matter of minutes. It couldn’t get much faster than that!

There are other advantages as well. As opposed to other elaborate cosmetic solutions, there won’t be any need to send materials off to a laboratory or wait around for weeks to get a final result. How nice is that?

What is the process itself like? We could tell you, but we’d have to kill you. Just kidding. There’s no big secret to this treatment. Here’s the deal: to kickstart the process we will use a special tool to roughen the surface of the tooth so the bond can easily attach to the tooth.

After that, we will apply a conditioning liquid that helps the material bond properly to the tooth.

Once the composite material has been placed, we use a special UV light to make the bond harden on the spot. When the bond is sufficiently hard, we will carefully shape and polish the bond to match your own unique smile. Everything will look as it should in the end.

A Little Dental Bonding Goes A Long Way

We think you will be pleased by the possibilities. Dental bonds can address a variety of annoying issues, including: broken teeth, decay, gaps, staining, and a whole lot more.

Is caring for your bonded teeth difficult? No! You just perform your regular home hygiene routine of brushing twice a day and flossing regularly.

Still, we do suggest that patients with dental bonds stay away from stain-causing drinks like coffee, soda, and red wine in the first days immediately after the bonding session.
