At Dental Care Shawnee, we’ve helped repair people’s teeth using dental bonding. Everyone deserves a smile that they can show bravely to the rest of the world. This is easier said than done for people who have chipped, cracked, or broken teeth.
Patients looking for dental bonding in Shawnee, KS, can trust us with their dental needs. Our dentists are highly trained in different aspects of cosmetic dentistry, including dental bonding.
Cost is an important factor to consider before performing a cosmetic dental procedure. Patients who don’t have insurance or their insurance policies don’t cover cosmetic dentistry will need to give this more thought. Dental bonding is one of the least expensive cosmetic dental procedures.
At Dental Care Shawnee, we can complete your dental bonding in one procedure. Alternatives like veneers and crowns often require two visits. Additionally, we can perform bonding on multiple teeth in a short time. The procedure isn’t invasive or uncomfortable. Most patients don’t even require local anesthesia while undergoing dental bonding.
We’ll prepare the teeth using a specific gel then apply the composite resin. Ultraviolet light is then used to harden it. The color of composite resin is adjusted, so it looks like the rest of your teeth. People who see you shouldn’t be able to tell that you underwent dental bonding.
The main issue with dental bonding is that the material used isn’t as durable as your natural teeth. You’ll need to take care not to bite or chew on anything too hard. Dental bonding usually lasts a couple of years before it needs to be replaced.
The composite resin used for dental bonding can also easily stain. Veneers and crowns can stain too, but they’re more resistant. Patients who receive dental bonding will need to avoid foods and drinks that contribute to dental staining. You will also have to brush your teeth regularly and floss to maintain your dental hygiene.
