Dental Bonding in Hillsboro, OR

A patient who is happy with her dental bonding procedure here in Hillsboro, OR.Your teeth play several important roles in your daily life. Not only do they help you to perform basic functions like eating and speaking, but they also provide you with a beautiful, confident smile. Any imperfections in your teeth, even minor ones, can have a serious impact on the quality of your smile. Along with affecting its appearance, these imperfections may also affect your confidence. You may smile less, which can give off the wrong impression. At Hillsboro Dental Center, we can restore minor dental imperfections with dental bonding.

What is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a procedure that is done to fix minor imperfections in your teeth. It can fix such issues as small chips and cracks in the enamel, small gaps between your teeth, misshapen teeth, teeth that are shorter than the rest, or discoloration. The material used for dental bonding is composite resin, which is made up of fine glass, plastic, and other materials. It is easily molded and shaped to fit a variety of different needs.

How is Bonding Done?

Dental bonding is a simple procedure that can usually be completed in less than an hour. We start by cleaning the teeth. Next, an acid etch is placed on the targeted teeth. The acid creates a rough texture on the surface of your teeth that helps the composite resin to better bond with the teeth. The acid is cleaned off, and the teeth are dried. We then apply the composite resin to the teeth and shape it as needed. It is dried using a special light and then polished to a beautiful finish.

What are the Benefits of Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding offers several benefits. It is a quick procedure, usually taking less than an hour. It is completely pain free and does not require an anesthetic. It does not require the removal of any enamel, unlike veneers. It is also an affordable option, costing less than options like veneers or crowns. The composite resin material is relatively strong and can stand up to most normal daily wear and tear. Composite resin matches the color of your natural teeth. Once in place, it cannot be detected against the rest of your natural teeth when you smile. With your smile restored, your confidence will soar.

Caring for Your Dental Bonding

Caring for your dental bonding is fairly simple You can, and should, still brush and floss as normal. These habits will help to prevent the buildup of plaque and bacteria that can lead to gum disease. It is also important to have regular dental cleanings and exams. These visits enable us to give your teeth a thorough cleaning and check them for any signs of damage or decay. We will also check the condition of your bonding. If it gets damaged, it can easily be fixed.

It is important to know that, while bonding provides a beautiful result, it is not as strong as other cosmetic options like veneers or crowns. Bonding can be easily damaged. Avoid biting or chewing on anything hard, such as popcorn kernels, ice, or things like your fingernails or pens. Composite resin can also be stained with dark pigmented foods or drinks. Unlike enamel, however, bonding cannot benefit from teeth whitening. By taking care of your bonding, you can be assured that it will provide you with a beautiful smile for many years to come.

Dental bonding restores the appearance of your teeth, giving you back your beautiful smile and restoring your confidence. Call Hillsboro Dental Center today at (503) 648-2829 for more information and to schedule your consultation today.
