It’s normal for your teeth to crack, chip, or get discolored over time, but this gives you a crooked smile. In addition, most people have cosmetic dental flaws that may make them uncomfortable. You can consider getting cosmetic dental bonding treatments that give you a complete smile makeover when you have these dental issues.
In most cases, dental bonding is used for cosmetic dentistry. Below are some widespread issues that dental bonds address:
Dental bonding is a simple, painless, and fast procedure that takes less than an hour, and it doesn’t even require local anesthesia. However, you might need anesthesia when your tooth is cracked near your nerve to ensure you do not feel pain during the procedure.
Your dentist will customize the composite material color to match your surrounding teeth’ shade during the appointment closely.
Your dentist then prepares your tooth by roughening its surface and applying a bonding agent. A rough surface ensures that the resin firmly sticks on the tooth.
The dentist then applies the composite bonding material and molds it to the desired shape. A special curing light is used to strengthen the bonds quickly.
It’s no secret that smoking has adverse effects on your health. Tobacco products harm your dental health and general health. In addition to gum disease and tooth decay, smoking leads to dental bonding discoloration.
Unfortunately, cosmetic bonds become dull over time from smoking and eating red wine, tea, and coffee. Beverages that contain acid tend to stain the composite resin creating a dull appearance. Also, unlike porcelain veneers and dental crowns, dental bonding isn’t stain-resistant, and yellowing due to smoking will compromise the aesthetic of your smile.
When smoking marijuana, cigarettes, or pipes, the smoke comes in contact with your teeth during inhaling.
The dental bonding material is porous. Tar from smoking is dark, and it sticks on your dental bonds, causing staining.
These reasons contribute to extreme dental discoloration, and you should avoid smoking if you can.
