There’s always an option for tooth restoration when looking for a dentist near you. At All In One Benso Family Dental in Phoenix, AZ, we’ve helped many of our patients restore their teeth and smiles. Why live with a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth when there are options to fix it?
At All In One Benso Family Dental, we noticed that dental bonding is one of the most popular options. It’s an easy and non-invasive way of repairing teeth. Our dentists perform multiple dental bonding procedures each month and have more than enough experience to take good care of you. Dental bonding isn’t always the best option though. We’ll make our recommendation after we examine your teeth and oral cavity.
We use composite resin in dental bonding to repair teeth. Composite resin is white, but its shade is modified, so it looks like your natural teeth. We can also work on the shape of composite resin, so it fits in a damaged or broken tooth. In patients that have large gaps between their teeth, dental bonding is also useful.
The affected tooth will be prepared using a certain kind of gel, and then the resin is placed. To make it stick, we’ll use ultraviolet light to harden it. You will remain comfortable during the procedure, and local anesthesia might be required. We can perform dental bonding in Phoenix, AZ in one visit. You’ll be able to go home the same day and even drive.
Dental bonding lasts about five years in most patients. Composite resin won’t endure chewing and biting on hard foods and objects like natural teeth. You’ll need to be careful with what you eat and chew on to avoid breaking it. People who undergo dental bonding also need to watch out for staining.
Composite resin is not stain-resistant and will get darker over time. To prevent this, you should try to quit or cut back on smoking. Drinks like coffee, tea, red wine, and sodas should also be avoided. Finally, patients need to continue brushing their teeth and flossing to prevent cavities, decay, and dental staining.
