Do you have a dental injury? Repair your smile with teeth bonding treatment at Oxford Family Dentistry in Oxford, PA. As a cosmetic dental treatment, dental bonding can be used to cover areas of tooth discoloration or damage. Addressing dental injuries can also improve the function of the bite. Already chipped or cracked teeth can create an unstable, crooked bite. These teeth can also be damaged from continual use over time.
Dr. Stefan Speck works with his patients to customize their dental bonding treatment to their smiles. He helps create a seamless cosmetic restoration that blends in with the form and color of the natural tooth.
Benefits of Tooth Bonding
Dental bonding treatment may be used to:
- Repair chips and cracks in teeth
- Close small tooth gaps
- Reshape misshapen teeth
- Cover intrinsic tooth discoloration
- Correct minor tooth misalignment
Contact Oxford Family Dentistry if you have cosmetic concerns that impact the look and function of your smile. Our talented team of dental professionals will help find the right treatment customized to your specific needs.
Dental Bonding Treatment
Dr. Speck prepares teeth for dental bonding treatment by etching away a small portion of the tooth enamel. This does not damage the enamel. It creates the proper surface for the bonding material. Then, Dr. Speck sculpts and molds biocompatible bonding material to the damaged or discolored tooth. Once the bonding material is the correct size, shape, and hue, he cures it to the tooth using a special light. Finally, he polishes the bonded tooth for a natural luster.
Immediately following bonding treatment, patients should stay away from hard and sticky foods as this can damage the bonding material. Patients should also refrain from drinking tea, coffee, and soda as this can stain the bonded teeth. Bonded teeth can be brushed gently just like natural teeth to ensure that they stay bright and clean.
