You’ll be happy to hear that some cosmetic procedures can improve the overall look of your teeth non-invasively.

Are you an otherwise happy-go-lucky person that feels embarrassed by gaps, cracks, and other minor smile issues? If you live in the dental bondingEwa Beach area then you may want to talk to cosmetic dentist Dr. Kern Agader about dental bonding and how it has improved countless smiles.

What is dental bonding?

This cosmetic procedure involves applying and molding a tooth-colored resin (the same material used to fill a cavity) over flawed areas of a tooth or teeth to improve the overall color, shape or size. However, unlike getting a cavity filled, just applying this resin material over the tooth is completely non-invasive and won’t require anesthesia or needles. Patients are happy to hear that this treatment is 100 percent painless!

What should I expect prior to my cosmetic treatment?

As with any cosmetic procedure, your cosmetic dentist in Kapolei, HI serving Ewa Beach will want to make sure that dental bonding fits your lifestyle, needs and goals for treatment, so it’s important to come in for a consultation before you decide whether bonding is right for you. Those looking for more conservative enhancements to their smile can often benefit from dental bonding.

Those with healthy smiles who practice good oral hygiene and are ready to properly care for their new and improved smiles are often the best candidates for bonding.

What issues can be addressed with dental bonding?

Dental bonding is great for patients of all ages that are looking to hide small imperfections like discolorations, gaps between teeth, chips and cracks. While other options like dental veneers are great for more moderate to complicated cases, dental bonding is a wonderful and non-invasive way to improve the overall appearance of your smile without the drastic measures.

How do I care for my teeth after bonding treatment?

Of course, no matter what dental procedure you go through it’s always best to maintain a good oral care regime to keep your smile looking and feeling its best. To protect the color and integrity of the dental resin you’ll also want to avoid doing any of these things for at least two days after your treatment:

  • Consuming stain-producing drinks or foods like coffee, wine, and berries
  • Smoking cigarettes, as the chemicals can cause some nasty dental stains and affect your overall health

With the proper care, dental bonding can last up to 10 years or more. By staying away from habits like nail biting, chewing on pens or opening bottle caps or plastic packaging with your teeth you too can protect the integrity of your healthy smile.
