Dental Bonding in Tracy, CA

Miller’s Family Dentistry offers dental bonding in Tracy, CA, so you can get back to enjoying life with confidence and a healthy smile. This cosmetic treatment involves using composite resin bonded to your tooth to give it a more uniform look and to strengthen the structure of the tooth.

What is Dental Bonding?

Tooth bonding is a restorative procedure that can be used to restore the beautiful appearance and function of your smile without having to replace the entire natural tooth. It involves using a special dental adhesive that bonds directly to the surface of the teeth, filling in any gaps or holes left by decay, and then covering it with a protective layer of tooth-colored resin material.

When is Tooth Bonding Necessary?

If you have any of the following dental issues, then composite bonding might be right for you.

Chipped or broken teeth

Cracks around fillings

Decayed teeth

Stained or discolored teeth

Uneven teeth

Spaces between teeth

Teeth that are too short

Why Should You Consider Dental Bonding?

Minimally Invasive

Dental bonding does not require drilling into the tooth structure. There will be less damage done to the enamel and dentin of your tooth than with other cosmetic procedures.

Cost-Effective Solution

Dental bonding is considerably less expensive than other cosmetic dentistry options like dental veneers or crowns.

Fast and Convenient

Dental bonding usually takes only a single visit. You don’t have to wait weeks or months before you see results.

Dental Bonding Procedure

The first step in the cosmetic bonding process is preparing your teeth by removing any plaque and tartar from your tooth surfaces. Then, a special adhesive is applied to the areas of your teeth that need restoration. Once this has dried, the excess is carefully removed, leaving behind a thin coating of the adhesive on the surface of your teeth. The next step is placing a small amount of bonding material over the adhesive. A special light is then used to harden the composite resin, creating a durable, long-lasting restoration.

Caring for Your Bonded Tooth

You should do the following to keep your new bonded tooth looking its best:

  • Avoid eating potentially damaging foods such as gum, candy, ice cubes, and popcorn. This could cause the bond to fail.
  • Make sure to brush and floss regularly to maintain good oral health.
  • Use a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar.

If you notice any changes in the color of your tooth or sharp edges of your bonded tooth, contact us immediately so we can schedule a follow-up appointment.
