Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental solution that we offer patients in our Greer, SC office. Dr. Adam Carraway uses tooth bonding treatment to address chipped, cracked, fractured, and discolored teeth. Dental bonding can also close small gaps between teeth for a more uniform look. Dr. Carraway adds structure to his patient’s smiles with dental bonding, changing the shape and color in the process. As an economical alternative to dental veneers, tooth bonding is a great treatment for patients who are new to cosmetic dental care and have minor imperfections.
Dental Bonding Treatment
Dr. Carraway can provide tooth bonding treatment to patients in just one visit to his Greer dental office. He begins the tooth bonding process by cleaning the teeth. Then, he removes a small amount of the tooth enamel, etching the surface so that the bonding material adheres properly to the treated teeth. After the teeth are prepared, Dr. Carraway sculpts the biocompatible bonding material onto the teeth. He shapes the material and ensures that it is color-matched correctly. Once the bonding material is in the right shape, size, and color, it is cured with a special light.
Caring for Bonded Teeth
Patients can clean and care for bonded teeth just like natural teeth. Gently brushing teeth using a soft toothbrush and flossing between teeth can help keep harmful bacteria at bay. Immediately following your bonding treatment, you want to avoid tobacco products as well as any foods or beverages that can stain the bonding material. Stay away from coffee, wine, tea, and berries at this time. We also recommend that patients continue to schedule routine visits every six months. During these visits, we can clean the teeth and examine your bonded teeth to make sure they’re in good shape.
