If you are tired of seeing your dull smile in old photos or the mirror, we are ready to help you achieve a smile to lift your spirits. While you associate dental veneers and crowns with smile transformation, Montclair Dental Care has yet another smile enhancement procedure (hint: it’s affordable, minimally invasive, and quick). Using cosmetic dental bonding, Dr. Kenneth Childers takes a single office visit to eliminate chips, stains, and other minor flaws from your smile.
Dr. Childers will evaluate your oral health, smile, and discuss your goals. If we determine that dental bonding is the best option for you, we will start by preparing your teeth. We’ll roughen the enamel before applying an acidic gel to create a strong bonding surface. Then, we’ll carefully apply color-matched composite resin to the prepped enamel. Dr. Childers will expertly sculpt and mold the material to eliminate imperfections.
Next, he uses a special curing light to harden the resin for a durable restoration. Lastly, we’ll make a few final touches, including reshaping and polishing your restoration to blend seamlessly with other teeth.
Maintaining your bonded teeth involves diligent brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. Since the composite material can be stained, limit the intake of stain-causing foods and substances (smoking). Dental bonding can last between 4-8 years when well cared for. However, inform your dentist when you notice signs of wear before the expiry date. Composite bonding is easily repairable.
