If your smile has minor imperfections like chipped, discolored, or unevenly spaced teeth, then you know even the little things can have a big impact. Dental bonding–a dental procedure in which the dentist uses tooth-colored resin to correct cosmetic issues–can be used to repair damaged teeth and improve the natural beauty of your smile.
Dental bonding is just one of the many comprehensive dental care services offered at Monarch Dental that allow us to give you the gorgeous grin you’ve always wanted. From routine cleanings to other cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening, you’ll find your best and brightest smile at Monarch Dental.
Dental bonding is the process of applying a tooth-colored resin to your teeth with the goal of correcting smile imperfections, smoothing out sharp edges or chips, or filling in a gap between teeth. While dental bonding is typically cosmetic in nature, it is a fast, easy, and affordable way to improve your smile and your confidence.
Dental bonding cannot be used to correct teeth with structural problems, such as severe decay, significant damage, infection, or misalignment.
While it may not be the best solution in all cases, dental bonding is a good alternative to a variety of procedures like veneers, crowns, or even professional whitening if only minor corrections are required.
Dental bonding can typically be performed in your dentist’s office and, depending on the number of teeth you need treated, often in one 30-60 minute appointment.
Bonded teeth should be cared for just like any other natural teeth, with a good oral health routine that includes daily brushing and flossing as well as bi-annual cleanings and checkups. Dental bonding is a durable treatment that can last up to 10 years or more with proper care, but it’s important to remember that the bonding resin is not as strong as natural tooth enamel.
If you grind or clench your teeth at night–a condition called bruxism–you should talk to your dentist about using a night guard to help protect your restoration. You should also wear a mouthguard if you participate in contact sports or other activities that could cause damage to your teeth.
It’s important to be confident in your smile. Dental bonding from Monarch Dental can help fix the minor imperfections in your smile so you can look and feel your best. With flexible scheduling, multiple locations, and a wide range of payment options, Monarch Dental makes it convenient and affordable for you to get–and keep–a beautiful, healthy smile.
