New Orleans Cosmetic Bonding Procedure

If you want to improve your smile, enhance your self-confidence and make a lasting first impression, consider a New Orleans cosmetic bonding procedure at Southern Dental Care. Cosmetic bonding is a dental procedure that applies a tooth-colored composite resin on a discolored, decayed, fractured or chipped tooth to make the tooth cosmetically appealing, repair a cavity or as an alternative to standard amalgam fillings. In addition, the procedure can be completed in a single office visit.

Oral Evaluation

In many cases, bonding is used as a restorative procedure to repair damaged teeth and is a viable alternative to veneers. However, the dentist must first evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums to determine if bonding is the right procedure for you. For example, if you need a root canal, cosmetic bonding cannot correct the problem because it is primarily used as a cosmetic solution for relatively healthy teeth.

Procedure

According to the American Dental Association, bonding is an effective and safe procedure that is widely accepted. As a result, the average cosmetic bonding procedure is very efficient. For example, if you need a bonded white filling because of a cavity, the dentist will first remove the decayed tooth structure with a drill. After the cavity has been removed, the space that is left behind is prepared with a cleaning agent and then an adhesive bonding agent is applied, which is cured with a blue light until it is hard. The bonded white filling material is then placed in the open space, shaped with special dental instruments and then hardened with a blue light. The tooth is then shaped with a high-speed drill. In general, the entire bonding procedure for a single tooth takes between 30 to 60 minutes to complete. This general procedure can also change the color or shape of teeth, make a tooth appear longer and close spaces between teeth.

Aftercare

After the bonding procedure is complete, it is important to avoid food and drinks that can stain the resin that is used in the bonding process for at least two days. Tea, coffee and colored candy are examples of products that can stain the bonding material. In addition, your should also avoid biting down on hard foods to prevent cracking and chipping.

A New Orleans cosmetic bonding procedure at Southern Dental Care is a great way to get the smile you always wanted. The friendly staff is always ready to answer your questions about any cosmetic bonding procedure. You can call for more information or schedule an appointment in the form to your right!
