Dental Bonding in Sandy

Easton Dental Care offers dental bonding treatment in Sandy, Utah

sandy UT teeth bonding

Dental Bonding is the process of attaching dental materials to your teeth using dental adhesives and a high intensity curing light. It typically involves using tooth-colored composites (natural-looking materials) to fill cavities, repair chips or cracks, close gaps between your teeth and build up the worn-down edges of teeth. Dentists place the materials in or on the teeth where and as needed. For our patients in Sandy, Utah, dental bonding is a quick and effective solution for repairing common dental imperfections.

The dental bonding procedure is typically completed in just one visit while more complicated or extensive treatments may require additional visits. Composite materials also may be directly applied and sculpted to the surfaces of your more prominent teeth. Composite bonding usually is an ideal and less expensive solution for repairing chips, gaps between the teeth, staining and discoloration, slight crookedness and misshapen teeth.

Dental Bonding Consultation and Treatment Planning

To determine if your dental problems can be solved with direct composite bonding, Dr. Jeff Easton will first conduct a thorough examination and evaluation of your teeth and gums. During your consultation, he will discuss the clinical and cosmetic problems that direct composite bonding can resolve, such as cavities, chips, cracks, fractures, gaps and spaces between teeth, and tooth discoloration. However, if you have teeth that are extensively damaged or he feels that other dental issues may affect the success and longevity of direct composite bonding treatment, other options may be presented to you, such as dental crowns or dental veneers.

Pre-treatment teeth whitening may be suggested in order to better match the color of the composite restoration to your natural teeth. If whitening is needed, Dr. Easton may wait anywhere from 14 to 21 days before placing your direct composite restorations to ensure a proper and durable bond to your natural tooth structure.

In instances where direct composite bonding materials will be used to lengthen or change the shape of your teeth and alter the appearance of your smile, Dr. Easton may take impressions of your teeth before treatment to create a preview model of what your new smile could look like. If you agree with the proposed changes, Dr. Easton may then use this model as a guide or template when placing the direct composite on your teeth.

Direct Composite Bonding After Care

Direct composite bonding restorations can provide you with a healthy and beautiful smile for many years, but it is important to follow Dr. Easton's recommendations for proper oral hygiene, as well as avoid habits that could damage your restorations.

Brush at least twice a day, floss once a day and schedule regular visits with Dr. Easton for routine examinations and cleanings.

Refrain from habits such as biting your fingernails and chewing on pens, ice or other hard objects, since direct composite bonding materials are prone to chipping. Dr. Easton will also suggest that you return to the office if you notice any sharp edges on the bonded tooth or teeth, or if the tooth feels differently when you bite down.

For all of our friends in Sandy, Utah, tooth bonding from Easton Dental Care is an excellent and cost-effective solution. We invite you to contact Easton Dental Care.
