Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile? If you have minor smile flaws, Dr. Karey may recommend dental bonding in Ann Arbor, Michigan. During this procedure, our dentists will apply a tooth-colored resin to your teeth and use a special light to bond it in place. This material can enhance your smile and will feel like your original tooth. Dental bonding may be an option for your smile if you have:
– Decayed teeth (the resin material is used to fill cavities)
– Misshapen teeth
– Exposed tooth roots from receding gums
– Chipped or cracked teeth
– Stained or discolored teeth
– Small spaces between your teeth
– Teeth that appear too small or short
Will My Bonded Teeth Need Special Care?
To care for your new smile, practice good oral hygiene. No special care is required! Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss once a day, and use mouthwash once or twice a day. Also, be sure to visit our office regularly for professional exams and cleanings.
It is important to remember that the bonding material can chip. To prevent this, avoid habits like chewing on pens, ice, or other hard objects; biting your fingernails; and opening things with your teeth. Contact our dentists if you notice any sharp edges on your bonded tooth or if your tooth feels strange when you bite.
