Do you have chipped and cracked teeth? Are you looking for an efficient way to repair your smile? Ask Dr. Jeffrey Bellisario about teeth bonding treatment in his Ardmore, PA dental office. Dr. Bellisario is a cosmetic dentist with years of experience. He is passionate about helping his patients restore functionality and aesthetics to their smiles.
Tooth bonding is a cosmetic dental treatment that adds structure to injured and damaged teeth. Dental bonding can also cover crooked teeth, brighten stained teeth, lengthen short teeth, and fix gaps in the smile. Bonding offers efficient care with natural-looking results.
When compared to porcelain veneers, dental bonding offers quicker, more economical treatment for our patients. If you have imperfections in your smile that you would like to fix, teeth bonding may be right for you.
Dental Bonding Treatment
Prior to treatment, we will make sure that you are in good oral health. We can provide a root canal, tooth extraction, or gum disease treatment if needed. Dr. Bellisario will prepare the teeth for the bonding material by roughening the tooth’s surface. This does not damage the natural tooth enamel but creates the proper surface for the biocomposite resin.
Then, Dr. Bellisario molds and sculpts the resin to each prepared tooth. Once the teeth are the correct color and shape, he uses a curing light to set the bonding material in place. Finally, he polishes the newly bonded teeth.
Directly after treatment, avoid eating hard or chewy foods that can damage your newly bonded teeth. We will also ask you to refrain from eating or drinking foods and beverages that easily stain. Avoid tea, berries, tomatoes, coffee, and wine. Additionally, do not use tobacco products that also cause yellowing and deep tooth stains. You can gently brush and floss your bonded teeth.
