What You Need to Know about Dental Bonding
Many recent studies have shown that an attractive smile is a great way to boost our self-esteem. In fact, studies show that people with attractive smiles are viewed as being more approachable and even seen as being more trustworthy. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy all the benefits of a beautiful smile!
Unfortunately, few of us are born with a perfect set of teeth. Whether your teeth are stained, have wide gaps in between, are chipped or misshaped – whatever dental challenges you face, most of these can be remedied by the simple, fast process of dental bonding.
The process involves Dr. Kaliher applying a bonding material to the patient’s natural teeth, then using a specially designed light to harden the material. It typically requires very little if any drilling and rarely requires any form of anesthetic. In fact, Dr. Kaliher can usually complete the procedure in a single visit!
Caring for Bonded Teeth
The material used in bonding is so much like the surface of your natural teeth that it can be stained in much the same way. So it’s important for patients to know that their bonded teeth might be stained as a result of smoking, too much coffee, or any other habit this is likely to stain their normal teeth.
Bonded teeth can also be damaged if the patient chews on ice or hard candy, for example. So those habits should be avoided if your teeth are bonded. With the right care and maintenance, bonding can last for quite some time, but it’s up to the patient to exercise some amount of caution to keep the bonded teeth clean and free from damage.
