Correcting Smile Flaws with Dental Bonding

Posted .

Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile? If you have minor smile flaws, Dr. Corey Johnson may recommend dental bonding in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. During this procedure, our dentist will apply a tooth-colored resin to your teeth and use a special light to bond it in place. This material can enhance your smile and will feel like your original tooth. Dental bonding may be an option for your smile if you have:

– Stained or discolored teeth
– Small spaces between your teeth
– Teeth that appear too small or short
– Misshapen teeth
– Decayed teeth (the resin material is used to fill cavities)
– Chipped or cracked teeth
– Exposed tooth roots from receding gums

Will My Bonded Teeth Need Special Care?
To care for your new smile, practice good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss once a day, and use mouthwash once or twice a day. Also, be sure to visit our office regularly for professional exams and cleanings.

It is important to remember that the bonding material can chip. To prevent this, avoid habits like chewing on pens, ice, or other hard objects; biting your fingernails; and opening things with your teeth. Contact our dentist if you notice any sharp edges on your bonded tooth or if your tooth feels strange when you bite.
