Dentist in Kingston, PA Offering Dental Bonding For Patients with Cracked, Chipped or Discolored Teeth

If you suffer from teeth which are cracked, chipped or are discolored, then dental bonding may be the solution you’ve been looking for. With dental bonding, you will be able to have that confidence you’ve been missing to flash off your beautiful smile. Dr. Stephen Lawrence has been offering this cosmetic dental solution to patients in the Kingston, PA area with great success.

Tooth bonding, a procedure involving a tooth-colored resin being applied to one or more of your teeth to correct damage or cosmetic issues, is an incredibly cost-effective and simple solution when compared to other dental options available such as veneers or crowns.

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

How Does Dental Bonding Work in Kingston PA Area

The dental bonding process begins when you visit your dentist and a specific shade for the composite resin which will be applied to your tooth or teeth is chosen from a guide that will match your natural tooth color.

Once the bonding procedure is underway, the surface of your tooth will be gently roughened so tat a liquid can be applied which will allow for a bonding agent to stick to your tooth. Your dentist will then apply the composite resin onto the liquid before molding and shaping to match your other teeth. The resin is then hardened using a UV light. In some cases, once the resin is hardened, the resin may still need to undergo further shaping.

Caring for Bonded Teeth

Once the bonding process has been completed, there are steps you can take to care for the newly bonded tooth (or teeth) so that it can remain in great shape for an extended period of time. Here are some self-care tips you can follow.

  • Follow a healthy oral regimen including (at least) twice a day brushing and daily flossing
  • Avoid foods that could damage the bonding such as hard foods and candy
  • Don’t bite your nails
  • In order to avoid stains, avoid coffee, tea and tobacco. This is especially true for the first two days after the bonding procedure.
  • Maintain regular dental cleanings twice a year (every six months)

Make sure and immediately reach out to your dentist if you chip or break the bonding material.
