Dental Bonding in Salt Lake City
In our office dental bonding in Salt Lake City is a simple, easy, and inexpensive way to both protect and perfect your smile. Dental bonding is most often used to repair cracks and chips while also correcting some small cosmetic deformities. The composite resin is a putty like material applied to your teeth. Once it has reached the proper shape it is hardened and bonded. Unlike veneers and dental crowns, dental bonding can be completed with just one or two visits to our office. With this procedure you can have corrections made to your smile that will perfectly match the structure and color of your natural teeth.
Dental bonding in Salt Lake City is often used to:
- Protect exposed tooth root
- Replace metal fillings
- Alter the shape of your teeth
- Fill in the spaces between teeth
- Improve the appearance of discoloration
- Repair chips, cracks, and fractures
- Place fillings for cavities
Dental bonding in Salt Lake City is most often used to fill cavities. Enamel loss is a common component of tooth decay. When this happens it is necessary to repair the cavity as soon as possible to prevent further damage. With this dental restoration procedure we can improve the function, integrity, and morphology of a decayed tooth. It used to be that materials such as gold and silver alloys were used to restore your teeth. Now with composite resin you get far more attractive results. With tooth colored dental bonding we use a resin based mixture that is strong enough to resist wear and protect your tooth.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding in Salt Lake City
Did you know?
You may have a cavity and not even realize it. The pain we associate with cavities is in fact a more advanced decay that has caused nerve damage.
The bonding process is fairly simple and straight forward. Our dentist will choose a composite resin that matches the natural color of your teeth. It is often recommended that if you would like to have teeth whitening it is performed before any bonding work. That way the composite resin will more easily match the new shade of your teeth. Then our dentist will slightly etch and roughen the surface of your tooth. This makes it easier for the materials to bond directly to your teeth and stay there.
Next the dentist will place the resin and mold it in to proper shape. Artistry plays a large part with cosmetic dental bonding in Salt Lake City. Not only does the color have to match your natural color, but the shape and contours of the dental work must also match with the natural structures of your teeth. Once the tooth has been smoothed into proper shape we use an ultraviolet light to harden and fully bond the material. Once the resin is hardened we will polish the dental work so it matches the sheen of the rest of your smile. The time to complete these procedures usually takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes per tooth.
The advantages of dental bonding in Salt Lake City are that it is a simple and cost effective treatment. Most of your natural tooth is preserved and our dentist can easily correct any problems you may have with the new shape and feel of your teeth. Unfortunately dental bonding is not as resistant as crowns or veneers. Instead the materials are likely to chip and crack if not properly cared for. Also, composite bonding is more likely to retain stains. You will have to maintain regular oral hygiene if you want this work to last.
So if you are looking for a great way to improve your smile while also protecting it, then cosmetic dental bonding in Salt Lake City may be just the procedure you are after. Contact our office today and find out more.
