Dental Bonding
Issaquah, WA

Your teeth do a lot for you. In addition to enabling you to effectively eat and speak, your teeth are an essential part of a beautiful, confident smile. Even minor imperfections can have a major effect on your smile and can cause you to become self-conscious. Fortunately, you do not have to live with flawed teeth. Lake Sammamish Family Dentistry can give you back your beautiful smile with dental bonding.

Do You Have Minor Flaws in Your Teeth?

There are some different minor flaws that can affect the appearance of your teeth and your smile.
•  Chips or cracks that are only in the enamel.
•  Small spaces between your teeth.
•  Small cavities in your teeth.
•  You have teeth that are smaller than others.
•  You have teeth that are oddly shaped.
•  Discoloration.

What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a treatment designed to correct the appearance of teeth affected by minor flaws. It uses a material called composite resin, which is a substance made up of fine glass, plastic, and other materials. Composite resin is extremely versatile. It can be shaped and molded to meet some different needs, whether we need to fill in a crack or empty space, fill a cavity, or alter the shape of a tooth.

How Is Dental Bonding Done?

The procedure for dental bonding is relatively simple and can usually be completed in less than an hour. We start by cleaning the affected teeth. Acid etch is then applied to the areas where the material is to go. This is used to create a rough texture on your enamel, which helps to enhance the bond between the material and your tooth. The acid is washed off, and your teeth are dried. We then apply the material to your teeth and shape it as needed to create the best aesthetic results. Once we have achieved the desired appearance, a special light is used to cure, or dry, the composite resin. Once cured, we polish it to a beautiful finish.

The Benefits of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding provides you with numerous benefits.
•  The procedure is quick, typically taking less than an hour.
•  The procedure is completely painless. You do not need any form of anesthesia.
•  We do not need to alter the structure of your teeth at all.
Composite resin is tooth colored, allowing it to blend in perfectly.
•  The bonding procedure is one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments available.

Maintaining Your Smile

While bonding does an excellent job restoring the appearance of your smile, it does require some care. Composite resin can be damaged, so it is recommended that you avoid biting or chewing on anything hard or using your teeth as tools. The material is porous and can, therefore, pick up stains. Unlike your natural teeth, however, composite resin cannot be whitened. Other than these considerations, your bonding can be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth and should be done daily to prevent oral health issues. You should also have your teeth professionally cleaned and examined twice a year. During your exams, we can check your bonding for damage and make repairs if necessary. You do not have to live with minor flaws in your teeth. Call Lake Sammamish Family Dentistry today at (425) 270-1075 to find out if dental bonding is right for you.
