Teeth out of alignment can be easily fixed by adding tooth-colored composite material to make them look straight. This same material can be used to close the gaps between teeth. Dental bonding not only adjusts misaligned teeth but can cover discolorations or help rotate a protruding tooth. Bonding is the least invasive way to enhance your smile, and its affordability makes it a favorite among our Nashville & Green Hills patients. Involving the layered application of durable plastic bonding material, dental bonds are sculpted to attain the most natural-looking addition to your smile line.
Dr. Clint Newman, DDS has been sharpening his dental bonding skills at the Nashville office for over 15 years and has the experience and knowledge to produce the best results for his patients. If you’re interested in the benefits dental bonding can offer, please contact our office as soon as possible to schedule a consultation. Is dental bonding or dental veneers right for you?
You may be a candidate for dental bonding if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:
Each dental patient’s case is, of course, unique and requires individual attention from Dr. Newman. During your consultation, he will be sure to make a thorough examination of your mouth to decide on the care plan that best suits you.
The dental bonding procedure generally consists of three steps. During the first part of the process, your teeth will be prepped by gently scratching the surface of the tooth so that the bonding material will adhere and by applying priming liquid.
Applying the dental bonding material in three layers, Dr. Newman will use the first layer to match the root color, the second to match the enamel, and the third to match the translucency. This layering technique is used in order to create the most natural look.
Finally, the bonding material is sculpted to fit the contours of the rest of your smile before a special light is used to harden it.
Bonded teeth require the same care as your natural teeth. Keeping good oral hygiene habits is the key to maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile. Good oral habits include brushing and flossing at least twice a day, making routine appointments for check-ups with Dr. Newman.
Bonding material does have the potential to chip, so biting on hard things such as your fingernails, pens, ice or especially hard food may cause damage. If the feeling in your tooth changes from the time of the procedure, the bond may have chipped and you should consult Dr. Newman for a check-up. Full post-dental bonding care information can be acquired from our Nashville staff.
