Dental bonding is a common way to fix damage to teeth in both children and adults. Our Nashua dental office uses it for both. This is one of the minor invasive types of restorations because we don’t have to remove the enamel from the surface of our teeth to do it. It’s not as complicated as it sounds. Our dentist in Nashua only roughen your teeth up a little bit, apply a moisturizing solution, and then put the bonding material on top of the tooth to shape and harden. The cosmetic dentist has to be very good at what they do to make the bonding look natural. Other than that, it goes by quickly, and there is little to no pain from the tooth itself. It is also a cheap option that you should think about.
It can be used for:
- Closing the small gaps between teeth
- Covering Up Dark stains
- Changing Size And Shape Of The Teeth.
- Putting back together with a tooth that has been broken or chipped
Because dental bonding can be used for so many different things, and because the procedure itself is so easy, we recommend it to many people. Despite this, it’s important to note that bonding material isn’t as strong or durable as a crown, and it doesn’t last as long for many people. Things can be done to keep it in good shape for a long time. People can try these steps at home:
Check what you eat
After the bonding process is over, you can eat all of your favorite foods. You don’t want to do things like eating ice, chewing a hard nut, or biting down on pencils. If it seems too hard, look for another way. Even though acid can damage all of your teeth, especially the one with the bonding material on them, you should also avoid it. This can cause your teeth to get worn down.
Good oral hygiene is essential
When you get bonding, the material is put on top of your natural teeth. This means that you can still get a cavity or infection in that tooth. Brush your teeth all day, floss daily, and get your teeth cleaned by a professional twice a year to cut down on the risk. If your mouth gets dry, you should drink a lot of water.
Don’t clench your teeth
People often have a habit of grinding their teeth at night, and while there are many reasons for this, many people grind more when they are stressed. If your jaw is usually sore in the morning, this could also signify that you grind your teeth. Wearing a nightguard will keep your teeth from getting hurt by not letting them touch. Wearing one can keep your natural teeth and the bonding material from cracking, chipping, or eroding, which can happen if you don’t.
A mouthguard is a good thing to put on
People of all ages get hurt when they play sports. Most adults think that protective gear is only essential for young kids. But they aren’t. This isn’t true. It’s easy to keep your teeth safe by wearing a mouthguard when you play sports. This is a common cause of tooth damage in adults.
