Our teeth play a vital role in our health and self-esteem, but they’re prone to wear and tear as we live our lives. Whether you don’t have a less-than-stellar oral hygiene routine or you take good care of your teeth, an accident can further damage them.
Thankfully, our team at Ambis Dental offers dental cosmetic bonding treatments as an affordable and painless way to restore your smile’s appearance by fixing various cosmetic issues.
Cosmetic dental bonding is a minimally-invasive restorative and cosmetic technique. What makes this procedure so convenient is the composite resin that’s applied. Similar to fillings, the resin used is similar to fillings in that it can be designed to match the natural shade of your smile. Your cosmetic dentist will freehand sculpt the resin onto your tooth, allowing them to repair minor damage and cover imperfections.
Since dental bonding is such a versatile treatment, our cosmetic dentist in Ithaca can use it to resolve several dental issues. Dr. Ambis may recommend dental bonding to patients whose teeth are:
She can also use dental bonding to conceal exposed tooth roots and protect your tooth from further damage. Schedule a consultation today to learn if dental bonding is ideal for you.
The results of dental bonding typically last about three to five years, but this can be extended up to 10 years with proper care and maintenance. You can get the most out of your treatment by practicing good oral hygiene, as daily brushing and flossing are great ways to keep your mouth free of unhealthy bacteria.
We encourage patients to visit our Ithaca dentist at least once every six months for routine dental visits and for your dentist to check whether your dental bond needs to be replaced.
The cost of dental bonding depends on several factors, such as how many teeth were treated. Dr. Ambis will provide you with a cost estimate of your procedure at your initial appointment. We recommend contacting your dental insurance provider to learn more about your plan’s coverage to see what benefits you’re entitled to.
Dental bonding is a virtually painless process, and most patients won’t require anesthesia since the procedure is non-invasive. Dental bonding doesn’t target any sensitive parts of your tooth, so you can stay relaxed during your appointment. Best of all, you can go back to your normal day-to-day life without having to wait for any numbness to subside.
