A chipped or slightly cracked tooth can be healthy but oh, so unattractive. At Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville, IL, Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi offers his patients many cosmetic dentistry services. A simple and budget-friendly one is composite resin bonding. It could solve your minor smile flaws in just one visit.

What is composite resin?

It's a tooth-colored compound--very like a putty--which your cosmetic dentist uses to repair small defects in your tooth enamel. Maybe you have:

  • A narrow gap between two teeth
  • Small chips and faint cracks on some front teeth
  • Dark stains from nicotine or coffee
  • Craze lines and pits
  • An oddly shaped or irregularly sized tooth because of hereditary factors

Whatever the minor flaw is, you want it gone. Fortunately, composite resin repairs do not require extensive enamel resurfacing, crowning, or any long, complicated treatment. A quick exam and X-ray can tell Dr. Zomorrodi if bonding is the way to go.

How composite resin bonding works

It's a mix of plastic and ceramic. To apply it, your dentist roughens the tooth surface and paints on a thin etching liquid. Then, your cosmetic dentist molds and sculpts the applied resin to the right shape and size. Dr. Zomorrodi's skill helps him affect a realistic repair. Then, he hardens the resin. That's the end of the procedure.

It takes just minutes per tooth. Often, bonding is the last step in a more extensive cosmetic dentistry plan. Also, dentists across the US use this versatile and durable material to repair tooth decay.

Advance Dental Care in Naperville offers an amazing range of aesthetic services, many of which are more complex than composite resin bonding. Your dentist will discuss your wishes before beginning any treatment.

Caring for your renewed tooth

You can use your tooth right away. However, as with all your teeth, treat it gently. Don't chew your fingernails or pencil. Avoid peanut brittle and candy apples. These things could chip your composite resin. Avoid smoking, and limit coffee and other things that could stain your repair and your natural enamel surfaces, too.

Also, brush and floss as usual. See Dr. Zomorrodi twice a year for a check-up and hygienic cleaning. Your composite resin bonding will last for years.

A healthy smile should look good, too

Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi of Advance Family Dental Care provides patients with an array of services, one of which includes professional teeth whitening. Why? Simple. A great smile can leave a lasting impression! Dr. Zomorrodi and his staff know just that, which is why they remove stains off teeth at their Naperville, IL, dentist office.

More About Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening turn back time and eliminate stains, dullness, and discolored teeth. Your Naperville, IL, dentist's technique offers impressive results. Dr. Zomorrodi uses a tooth-whitening agent that consists of powerful bleaching material to rejuvenate your smile. The bleaching material penetrates the tooth's enamel (white protective layer of the tooth) and makes teeth brighter. The reason enamel stains over time are because it absorbs brightly colored foods and beverages. Brushing with toothpaste and using mouthwash helps remove many of those stains, but a professional tooth whitening treatment is more powerful.

How Teeth Whitening Improves Your Smile

Believe it or not, professional whitening saves time and money. You save time going to the local drugstore to find teeth-whitening products. Plus, it may take several times using this product to get a result. Your Naperville, IL, dentist can make your teeth 3-8 shades brighter in about an hour with a professional teeth whitening.

Maintaining a proper dental care regimen helps professional teeth whitening last longer. It's not just about brushing and flossing to avoid decay and discoloration. You also need to limit sodas, coffee, tea, cherries, and other bright-colored foods. Avoid chewing tobacco and smoking to also help keep teeth white.

Teeth whitening boosts your self-confidence and self-esteem. Eliminating those stains makes smiling easy, and a great smile leaves a positive and long-lasting impression during a date or interview.

Wondering what the benefits are of getting dental implants?

Are you currently researching your options when it comes to how to replace missing teeth? If you said “yes” then chances are good that you’ve come across information about dental implants. Implants are a great option for many healthy adults who are missing anywhere from one tooth to an entire row of teeth. The implant replaces the roots of your teeth and provides a long-term option for adults who want to get full smiles back. Here are some of the benefits of getting dental implants from our Naperville, IL, dentist Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi.

Implants look and function like real teeth

One of the major reasons so many adults are turning to implants is because they are the closest you can get to real teeth. The implant is covered with a realistic-looking dental crown that is made to blend in with the rest of your smile. Furthermore, because the implant replaces the roots of the tooth and fuses together with the jawbone it actually behaves like a real tooth (and feels just as stable, too!).

Prevent bone loss

When a tooth falls out or needs to be extracted, the jawbone around the tooth begins to deteriorate. This is because the tooth roots provide the stimulation that the jawbone needs to produce new bone cells. By placing a dental implant into the jawbone this stimulates new bone growth and prevents bone deterioration.

Implants can last a long time

Since implants function just like natural teeth it should go without saying that they are built to last. The implant is made from durable titanium that fuses together with the jawbone. Once this osseointegration is complete the implant could last you the rest of your life. Of course, you will want to maintain good oral hygiene and keep your implant clean and healthy if you want it to last.

They are cost-effective in the long run

While implants are a bit more expensive upfront than other tooth replacement options they could actually be quite cost-effective. Once the implant is placed in the jawbone this part of the restoration should never need to be replaced. While the dental crown will need to be replaced every few years, with the proper care a crown could still last up to 10 years or longer. Other tooth replacement options will usually need to be replaced, adjusted, or realigned every few years, but not dental implants.

If you are dealing with tooth loss in Naperville, IL, it’s important that you have a dentist that you can turn to for the very best care. Call Advance Family Dental Care today at (630) 357-2332 to find out if dental implants are right for you.

Tags: bonding  

Do you hate that small gap between your front teeth? Is the shape of a tooth throwing off the rest of your smile? Our Naperville, IL, dentist Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi provides a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments to help improve your smile and your confidence. Find out more about dental bonding and how it could help you.

What is dental bonding?

Bonding is a simple and completely non-invasive dental procedure that uses the same material that fills cavities to also correct minor flaws in a tooth. The tooth-colored resin can be molded and shaped to the tooth to hide,

  • Small chips and cracks
  • Signs of wear
  • Stains caused by smoking
  • Defects in the enamel
  • Smalls gaps between teeth

Bonding has the ability to slightly alter the shape, color and even alignment of teeth. This reshaping treatment is performed in a single dental visit and offers immediate long-lasting results.

How is bonding performed?

We will first apply a gel to the front surface of the tooth, which will roughen the surface enough for the resin to stick to the enamel. Then the gel is rinsed off and the tooth is dried.

From there, we will choose the resin that most closely matches the color of your tooth so that it blends in. Once the resin is bonded to the tooth you won’t even notice it. The resin will then be applied to the area or areas of the tooth and shaped. Once shaped, your dentist will direct a special light over the tooth to quickly harden the resin into place. With a final polish, the tooth is now good to go. This entire process typically takes about 30 minutes.

How long does dental bonding last?

How well you care for your smile as well as certain habits can affect the longevity of your newly bonded tooth. By visiting your dentist every six months for routine checkups, they can also check the bonded tooth and determine when it needs to be replaced.

Tooth issues don't have to be severe to affect your smile. A tiny chip on the bottom of a tooth or a discolored tooth can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Fortunately, your Naperville, IL, cosmetic dentist Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi at Advance Family Dental Care can help you improve the appearance of your smile with a variety of treatments.

Lightening dull or discolored teeth

Dissatisfaction with tooth color is a common complaint. Aging and years of consuming darkly colored foods and beverages can change the color of your teeth. Teeth whitening offers a safe, simple way to lighten teeth by three to eight shades. If you opt for in-office treatment, you'll only spend an hour at the dentist's office. Take-home kits, provided by your Naperville dentist, offer another effective whitening solution. Results usually last several years.

If you're looking for a longer-lasting teeth whitening option, you'll want to consider veneers. The thin porcelain shells are attached to the fronts of your teeth with dental cement. Veneers are available in a multitude of shades, are very stain resistant and last 15 to 20 years or longer. Veneers are also a good choice if you have a single discolored tooth.

Covering small flaws

Veneers are often used to conceal minor imperfections and flaws in teeth, but they're not the only choice if you have chips, cracks, uneven surfaces, or discolorations.

Bonding offers another option. During the treatment, your cosmetic dentist shapes soft composite resin and applies it to your teeth. After the resin is hardened with a curing light, it becomes as hard as tooth enamel. Composite resin is available in many tooth-colored shades.

Changing the shape or length of teeth

Teeth that are too short or oddly shaped affect the uniformity of your smile. Bonding, veneers and crowns are all excellent choices if you want to lengthen a short tooth or improve the shape of a tooth.

Crowns, hollow restorations that slip over teeth, completely transform teeth. Although bonding and veneers are effective if your teeth are slightly shorter, crowns are the best option if there is a larger discrepancy in the length of your teeth. They're also a good choice if you have a few crooked or twisted teeth or you have a tooth that isn't shaped like the others.

Are you ready to make over your smile? Call your Naperville, IL, cosmetic dentist Dr. Zomorrodi at Advance Family Dental Care, at (630) 357-2332 to make an appointment.
