At Coast Dental in south Adelaide we offer dental bonding as part of our cosmetic dentistry treatments. This treatment is an effective, non-invasive treatment to enhance the appearance of your smile. When you visit our Christie Beach dental practice one of our dentists will assess what the best treatment is for you. Dental bonding is effective for concealing minor imperfections, chips, cracks and gaps. For anything more severe you may require porcelain veneers or dental crowns.
Dental bonding is a composite resin material that is applied to the tooth and then hardened with a high-intensity light. During your initial consultation at our Christie Beach dental practice we will assess your oral health and determine which the best treatment for you is. If the problem is both minor and cosmetic, dental bonding is a great long-term solution to improving your smile.
If you suffer from some form of gum disease (gingivitis or periodontist) this should be treated prior to any cosmetic dentistry. If you suffer from gingivitis this can be treated and cured; when it progresses to periodontitis it cannot be cured—only treated.
How many appointments you need will depend on the amount of work you are looking to have done. Generally, the appointment only takes an hour and you will leave our office with whiter, healthier looking teeth.
You may experience some sensitivity after treatment, however this should not last more than a week. It is also important you maintain optimal oral hygiene: brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day, and flossing at least once a day. After cosmetic dentistry it is vital you visit your dentist for regular check-ups to not only ensure your continued good oral health but also the health of your cosmetic restoration.
