Yellowing teeth, slightly chipped tooth and wide spaces can seem unimportant when it comes to the grand scheme of your overall oral health, but they can give a big jolt to your aesthetic appearance and self-esteem. A simple cosmetic procedure, like dental bonding, can do wonders for your smile and confidence.
At Reich Dental Center – Roswell, we offer dental bonding which is one of the most popular, easiest, and most cost-effective cosmetic dental procedures.
Most of the time, dental bonding is used to improve the appearance of your teeth rather than their functionality. However, its results can have a far-reaching impacts on the efficient working of your teeth as well.
When is Dental Bonding Used?
Dental bonding can be used to restore a slightly chipped tooth or to hide a discolored tooth with intrinsic stains that cannot be fixed with tooth whitening procedures. It is also used to fill in the gaps between teeth which can trap food and plaque. People with disproportionately short teeth can use bonding material to make their teeth appear longer and in line with other teeth. Bonding material can also be used to improve the shape of a tooth.
Bonding material can also be used to protect a tooth root which may have become exposed due to gum recession. In some cases, bonding material can be used as a cosmetic alternative to fillings.

How To Take Care of your Teeth After a Bonding Procedure?
Bonded teeth do not require any extra special care. Patients who have gotten a bonding procedure should take care to follow good oral hygiene and dietary practices. They should brush their teeth at least twice a day and floss them daily. They should also not skip any dental checkup appointments with Reich Dental Center – Roswell.
Bad lifestyle habits like chewing on fingernails and pen caps can cause the bonding material to chip away from your teeth. Typically though, bonding can last a few years, depending on your habits, before it needs to be repaired.
