Dental bonding is one of the fastest, most affordable ways to improve and enhance your smile. Our El Monte dental bonding expert can use dental bonding to close gaps between your teeth, cover sensitive exposed roots, conceal stains or discolorations and renew teeth that have become chipped, cracked or worn.
Nearly anyone with small cosmetic flaws in their smiles may be a candidate for dental bonding. It can often be performed without the need for anesthetic, which makes it a remarkably comfortable procedure. Our expert in dental bonding in El Monte may also use dental bonding in ways that can improve your dental health as well as your smile. It can be used to repair small cavities and to protect your teeth if your gums have receded.
Dental Bonding El Monte
Most dental bonding procedures can be completed in about an hour. If you are a candidate for dental bonding, our El Monte dental bonding expert will need to prepare the tooth. If you are having a cavity filled, you may need anesthetic to ensure your comfort as the decay is cleaned out. The tooth may need to be buffed slightly to roughen the surface. A special liquid will be applied to your tooth to prime the surface, and then a putty-like composite resin material will be applied to the tooth in small layers. Our expert in dental bonding in El Monte will carefully mold the resin to your tooth before curing it and polishing it. The result is a restoration that matches your own natural tooth precisely.
Dental bonding requires no special maintenance, but you do need to continue practicing good dental hygiene. Use a soft-bristled brush and fluoride toothpaste to brush your teeth at least twice a day, and floss gently once a day. Biannual checkups with our dentist in El Monte can help keep your dental health on the right track and catch early signs of dental health problems.
