Dental Bonding From Your Dentist in Arlington, TX
Made from a plastic, tooth-colored resin, dental bonding is a treatment that rejuvenates the appearance of teeth with minor chipping, cracking, staining, and more. At Golden Rule Dental Care in Arlington, TX, we’ve seen the positive, smile-rejuvenating effects of this affordable and effective option over and over again.
What happens during dental bonding?
A simple process that only requires freezing in certain circumstances – when filling a cavity, when the area to be bonded is located near a nerve, or when the tooth needs a drill to alter its shape – our dentist begins the process by ensuring that the bonding material used closely matches your natural tooth shade.
Then, a conditioning liquid will be added to the tooth to ensure that the resin adheres. At this point, the resin is placed and shaped to complement your smile and bite before a special light is used to harden it. Our dentist will then complete any smoothing and polishing necessary to ensure that the bonding feels and looks great.
How do you care for teeth following this treatment?
It’s important to avoid tendencies that may damage your teeth, including biting your fingernails and chewing on ice. It’s also a good idea to limit the staining foods and drinks you consume, and to avoid (or quit) smoking.
