As we get older, it becomes more and more difficult to avoid dental problems. Unfortunately, you cannot have perfect, pearly white teeth forever. The condition of your teeth will ultimately dictate the type of foods you can eat. Depending on how strong your teeth are, you may be able to enjoy extremely soft or hard foods. This is why it has become essential for many to have cosmetic dentistry bonding done.
The entire cosmetic dentistry bonding procedure takes about half an hour to an hour only. The process involves sticking a clay-like substance to any gaps between your teeth, tooth decay, short teeth, misshapen teeth, discolored teeth, receding gums and amalgam fillings.
Many people prefer cosmetic dentistry bonding to cheap dental implants because the earlier can be completed with just one trip to the dentist. In one sitting, several teeth can already be fixed. Although your dentist has to consult a shade guide before your procedure, but he/she will not need an entire day to create the perfect paste for your teeth.
Once the paste has been prepared, the process is relatively simple. The tooth will be prepared for the process, then the paste will be put on. The resin will harden after the paste dries. The dentist will them trim the resin to properly fit in your mouth. Most of the time, the patient will feel no pain. If the there is extensive damage on the tooth though, anesthesia may be needed.
Cosmetic dentistry bonding is a quick and inexpensive procedure. Of course, it cannot fix everything. This procedure can only be done to fix minor dental problems. Further, the corrections are only good for a limited amount of time. This means that the issue will not be resolved from the roots. You must also be aware that with this procedure, discoloration is a common side effect.
Before deciding on whether or not to have the procedure, it is best to consult with your dentist first. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, no matter how stupid they may seem for you.
