With a stain, chip, or crack, you may not need an implant or a crown. Bonding eliminates these issues in a much simpler way.
Lifetime Dental Excellence serves Clawson, Royal Oak, Troy, Madison Heights, Berkley, Birmingham, Huntington Woods, and nearby communities and we are here to help you enjoy your smile.
What is bonding?
Bonding is the connecting of the tooth’s surface to remove chips, cracks, or stains. Colored resins make sure to blend in with your natural teeth’s color. After application, it’s treated with light to match the correct color perfectly.
Why should I have my tooth bonded?
Sometimes crowns and implants are much more work than you need to get your smile back to where you want it to be. For over 30 years, Lifetime Dental Excellence has been offering bonding surfaces for those little fix-it-ups patients sometimes need. Untreated cracks and chips can lead to infection or worsened conditions, so bonding can help to avoid future problems.
How do I take care of a bonded tooth?
On top of regular dental care, be sure to practice these forms of care for your bonded tooth:
● While the bonding material used to fix teeth is very durable, it’s not necessarily permanent. Elongate the life of your dental bonding by scheduling twice-yearly checkups with our office, as well as schedule visits if something seems off with your bonding.
● Cavities can develop in a bonded tooth when not properly cleaned and cared for. Practice ADA approved oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing, to keep a bonded tooth clean and healthy.
● The saying goes, “you are what you eat,” but your tooth is going to wear the brunt of your diet much more than you will. Be sure to eat nutritiously and avoid the foods recommended by your doctor.
